While guests hovered around Bill, Hillary spent much of the time in a corner of the house, putting a puzzle together with the hosts' children. And that is how I most remember her. Smiling, with no one around but the kids.
Ah, those hobgoblins of the past. It turns out that elections are over when they are over. Just a day after the latest Wikileaks/KGB data dump reveal...
