Dear Hillary.

The Modern Letter Project on Hillary’s busy busy busy letter writing, back in the college years:

Today the NY Times featured excerpts from letters
between presidential hopefully Hillary Clinton and high-school friend
John Peavoy during the mid-to-late 1960’s. A picture of Clinton’s
youthful self (read: embarrassing college photo) is displayed alongside
excerpts from college letters during a time author Mark Leibovich notes
are from when she was going through a "period of profound political
transformation." The letters reflect a transformative time where
Clinton transitions from being a Young Republican to a Democrat, as
well as touching on daily ruminations and missives about peers in her
dorm, the news, college life (a little talk of drugs and boys), the
state of American politics — both critical and analytical of her
surroundings with a precocious air…

One thought on “Dear Hillary.

  1. I think it’s so interesting that a woman who once described herself as a misanthrope wants to be president of the united states… I wonder if it was meeting bill who changed her view of people in general– this is a man who vowed to never forget a single person he met and at one point kept everyone’s name in little notebooks. not that this is a reason not to vote for her: if anything it gives me more respect for a woman I generally perceive to be a little plastic.
