Marcia Kramer of CBS 2 in New York recently did a story comparing the Hillary Clinton model for dealing with Bill’s sex scandals to how it appears the Secretary of State’s closest advisor, Huma Abedin is dealing with the sexting scandal her husband Anthony Weiner was involved in last year.
Well done news report that includes footage of Hillary defending Bill back in 1992. The strategy was entirely political. Hillary played the role of a scorned but unbelievably tolerant and forgiving wife. It worked because it garnered an enormous amount of sympathy for Hillary. According to this report from Kramer, Abedin seems to be tearing that page from Hillary’s political playbook.
