Famed Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward is very popular on the speaking circuit, not just for his Watergate scalps but also for his stories of interviewing presidents and wannabe presidents.
One story in his arsenal is about Hillary Rodham Clinton’s reaction to former President George W. Bush telling Woodward that he doesn’t think about his legacy. “History, we won’t know. We’ll all be dead,” Bush said.
Woodward told a National Association of Realtors meeting that Clinton was irked by those words, suggesting she would be more in control of her biography.
“George Washington would never think and talk like that. Thomas Jefferson would never think and talk like that. Bill [Clinton] would never think and talk like that,” she told Woodward, smacking her fist into her palm.
