In the end, much of the press ended up applauding (Hillary Clinton's) candor during her book tour. Predictably, there were a lot of people who lamented that "if only we could have seen this Hillary during the campaign, things would have turned out different." That's all bullshit. She was always the same person. We are the ones who perceive her differently in different situations.
