A Back-Handed Compliment For Clinton
Hillary Clinton's scars from her White House days aren't just from not passing universal health care. She was asked in an interview by the Globe Gazette, the paper in Mason City, Iowa where she had just spoken, "what's the thing about you that you think is the most misunderstood because of the image people have of you?"
According to the story, she did not hesitate before replying:
"The most common thing I hear from people who meet me is, 'Say, you're really nice.' It's a back-handed compliment, I know, but I'll take it," she told the paper.
Asked about her musical talents compared to her husband's saxophone playing, she was similarly modest.
"I'm a very bad piano player. I took lessons for six years and it's just one of those things that, well, I wouldn't want to do it in public.
And then, perhaps referencing her less than pitch-perfect rendition of the national anthem, she added:
"Singing is another thing I should always do behind closed doors."
