Sample text

Hillary, warned from the outset that Bill was already juggling a number of girlfriends at Yale, seemed not to care. She was happiest driving around New Haven with Bill in his hideously orange Opel station wagon. Before long, Hillary was spending weekends at the beach house in Milford, Connecticut, that he shared with three roommates. They, like nearly everyone else at Yale, were intimidated by Hillary’s 4 6 C H R I S T O P H E R A N D E R S E N intellect—and by her directness. She respected Bill, and believed without question that he would someday be President.

In later years Hillary would take pains never to mention her friendship with Garry, whose clients included People’s Temple founder Jim Jones and Angela Davis as well as Newton and Seale. Incredibly, Hillary dismissed out of hand the evidence against Garry’s clients, which included signed confessions from two of the defendants and a chilling audiotape of the victim’s “trial” by his fellow party members before he was summarily executed. Nor did it seem to matter to Hillary that the Panthers were waging a campaign of intimidation directed at Yale and the surrounding community.

Hillary returned to New Haven hating the war and Richard Nixon (“He’s pure evil”) more than ever. She and Bill rented a ground-floor apartment just off campus at 21 Edgewood Avenue for seventy-five dollars a month, and Bill used his own money to set up a “McGovern for President” headquarters. Much of the time, Bill worried aloud that his new relationship was not fair to Hillary. He told her that he wasn’t sure he wanted to fall deeper in love with her because she would never be happy in Arkansas.
