Sometimes you have to know when to shut up

I wouldn't have believed it, but she did it! Here's Hillary:

Asked at a press conference for her reaction about how the White House has handled the incident, US Senator Hillary Clinton called the Bush administration's failure to be more forthcoming "troubling." "A tendency of this administration -- from the top all the way to the bottom -- is to withhold information ... to refuse to be forthcoming about information that is of significance and relevance to the jobs that all of you do, and the interests of the American people," Clinton said. "Putting it all together, going back years now, there's a pattern and it's a pattern that should be troubling," she said at a press conference calling for a more robust federal response to the Hurricane Katrina disaster. The former first lady continued: "The refusal of this administration to level with the American people on matters large and small is very disturbing, because it goes counter to the way our constitutional democracy ... is supposed to work."
Just to clarify things, is this the same Hillary who conspired to withhold information about Vince Foster's suicide for 30 hours? The same Hillary who secretly collected files on people? The same Hillary embroiled in Travelgate? The Hillary who held dozens of secret hearings as a prelude to her much vaunted health plan? That Hillary? You gotta love it. Dick Morris is correct that Hillary is always at her best when she keeps her mouth shut. Interestingly, AFP, which published the story from which I quoted, is silent about Hillary's own history of -- how shall I put it? -- reticence.
