Clenis Envy

I think there's a pretty big club consisting of people like me who weren't big Clinton fans in the 90s, and are probably even less enthusiastic Clinton fans than we once were, who both then and now got/get a bit annoyed at our compulsion to rise to their defense because their critics are awful.

Of course Hillary Clinton had a PR boost because her husband had been president, but those of us who were alive at the time remember that it was far from obvious that she would win that senate seat and the press didn't exactly anoint her at as the presumptive victor at the time.
