And drip, drip, drip, another familiar process is auspicated. The Clintons' tawdry past begins once again to haunt them. At first, it was the lonely voice of Kentucky Senator Rand Paul noting the Democrats' hypocrisy in charging the Republicans with a "War on Women," when the Democrats' leading personality is Bill Clinton, the famed "sexual predator," to say noting of ex-Senator John Edwards and ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner, and many more. Then began the deluge. The Washington Free Beacon uncovered a mother lode of documents from Hillary's White House years. Maintained by Hillary's Arkansas friend, Diane Blair, who passed away in 2000, the documents include diary entries, letters and memos of conversations with Hillary from her embattled White House. They are candid.

They include Hillary's insight that the journalists -- the Episodic Apologists? -- have "big egos and no brains." Her overbearing mentality, "I'm used to winning and I intend to win on my own terms." And her attempts to deal with perceived enemies. For instance, she discussed with Blair the need to depict Gennifer Flowers, Bill's on-again off-again mistress of 12 years, as a "fraud, liar and possible criminal to stop this story and related stories." As for Monica Lewinsky, Hillary described her as a clever bully who seduced her helpless husband. Monica was 22, Bill 49 and president of the United States of America. Writes Blair, "It was a lapse, but she [Hillary] says to his credit he [Bill] tried to break it off, tried to pull away, tried to manage someone who was clearly a 'narcissistic loony toon'; but it was beyond control." Incidentally, in attempting to "break it off" Bill had telephone sex with Lewinsky some 15 times, often after 10:00 p.m.

I happen to know of the above nocturnal amours because I wrote of them in a 2007 book, "The Clinton Crack-Up." I got that information from intelligence operatives. They reported to me that they were not the only intelligence professionals who had this information. Most likely the French, Israelis and Russians were listening in on Bill and Monica's calls. Will the contents of these calls remain secret if Blair's documents cannot even be kept quiet?

Hillary, it is a long way to 2016.
