It's one thing to keep a diary about yourself but what about a dossier on a close friend?
That's apparently what former State Secretary Hillary Clinton's friend Diane Blair did. Thus, the world now has "The Hillary Papers," an extensive collection of documents written out by Blair with intimate details about the Clintons.
The Free Beacon, which first published the papers, characterized them as "correspondence, diaries, interviews, strategy memos, and contemporaneous accounts of conversations with the Clintons ranging from the mid-1970s to the turn of the millennium."
Who keeps those kinds of records about a friend? Even if your friend is the first lady?
Blair, a political science professor, died in 2000. So we can't ask why she did.
