Hilary Clinton's great sin was that she left the nicely wallpapered domestic sphere with a slam of the door, took up public life on her own, leaving big feminist footprints all over the place, and without so much as an apology.

Hillary Rodham Clinton (b. 1947), who was First Lady of the United States at the time, had previously been a successful attorney in Arkansas. She was being criticized for, among other things, her visibility in her husband's (President Bill Clinton's) administration and her lucrative investments.
