Many Americans will not explore the details of the Whitewater scandal, the distress of Vince Foster, multiple allegations against Bill Clinton of coerced carnal activity, events in Syria, the death of the U.S. Ambassador and other Americans in Benghazi followed by an alleged cover-up, allegations of failure to properly secure Secretary Clinton's email server thus exposing sensitive information related to national security, the sordid financial details of the Clinton Foundation, and more. But most Americans will grasp the following on an emotional level.
Hillary Clinton reportedly battered a sitting President of the United States, the elected representative of the American people. She gave him a black eye. I would not have believed it, except this information comes from author Gary J Byrne, a man who served on their Secret Service detail.
That's the definition of a dysfunctional relationship not to mention the troubling reality of striking a sitting president.
But is it a crisis of character?
Women of good character do not hit men, except to defend themselves, because men are not in a position to hit first, or hit back, except in the gravest extreme. Even then, a man might not be believed; he's viewed as a lethal weapon. For this reason, in a court of law, a woman who uses lethal force to defend herself usually wins. It is a traditional common sense code of mutual chivalry, not just because it makes for a better society, but because of usual differences in physical strength and the basic idea of honor and fairness.
Adults, no matter the emotional turmoil, learn self-control and multiple methods of coping that do not include proactive violence, much less proactive violence against the President of the United States.
So yes, Hillary Clinton has a crisis of character.
Note: This information is based on the "Look inside this book" feature on Amazon for Gary Byrne's upcoming book about his service in the Clinton White House, Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How they Operate. The preview is enough to make the case for the book's title. I look forward to reading the entire book as soon as it is released.
