Quote of the Day

The Times's argument was that using personal email reinforced the narrative that I had a penchant for secrecy, but I've always found that charge odd.  People know more about me and Bill than anybody in public life.  We've made public thirty-eight years of our tax returns (thirty-eight years more than a certain someone), all my State Department emails, the Clinton Foundation tax returns and donors, medical information -- yet we were secretive?  When we sometimes did draw a line after going further than anyone in public life to be transparent, we didn't do it to be secretive -- we did it to keep ourselves sane.  Not to mention that someone trying to keep her email secret would be pretty dumb to use!

-- Hillary Rodham Clinton, What Happened, p. 302
