Hillary Clinton: shadow or shadow maker?
“I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me, and what can be the use of him is more than I can see”, wrote RL Stevenson. Some have implied the same about the Secretary of State.
Hillary Clinton is said to be toiling dutifully in the shadow of Barack Obama..but no one understands more than Ms. Clinton how to emerge successfully from the shadows of very strong presidential personalities.
And as Stevenson’s poem admits, sometimes that shadow “shoots up taller than an Indian rubber ball”–overshadowing and even eclipsing the original.
