You might not believe it, but I'm telling the truth when I say that Eleanor Clift is a charming person and very pleasant to talk with at a DC cocktail party. Funny and engaging - not the screeching harpy she sometimes channels when battling it out with PJB and Mort Z on The McLaughlin Group - especially when defending the Clampetts. She's a HillBilly fan to the end so there's really nothing she will not excuse or justify in defense of their excesses - but she goes through the looking glass when comparing the Arkansas hayseeds to patrician FDR. Just a few points of consideration: Clift supplements her income through Speaking fees. I assume she gets paid something to sit in on McLaughlin's Group . FDR, for all his deficiencies was, in fact, an excellent public speaker with a great radio voice. HRC is probably the worst public speakers in the modern era - I can't comment on Adams or Jefferson - and I can't say it's a disqualification for the Presidency
