Description

“I’m not sitting here as some little woman standing by my man like Tammy Wynette, I'm sitting here because I love him and I respect him,” said Hillary Clinton to Steve Kroft of “60 Minutes” in 1992. As her Uriah Heepish most ’umble lip-biting husband sat beside her, faking remorse because he was running for the presidency, the two successfully used the leftwing show to help them defuse a firestorm of criticism about the Arkansas governor’s 12-year affair with Gennifer Flowers. While Clinton partisans applauded Hillary – deliberately sans the Rodham – for her putative forgivingness, Tammy Wynette, the country music icon who in 1968 wrote and recorded the enduring standard “Stand by Your Man,” was furious at Hillary’s patronizing tone, as were millions of her fans, along with a burgeoning feminist movement just beginning to teach American women that looking the other way on spousal abuse – physical, mental or verbal – would never stop it.
