A Political Scientist to Remember

Posted by Ruth O’Brien


Can anyone be surprised that a politics professor, a BFFOH, might take notes about national politics?

Diane Blair, one of Hillary’s closest friends, is a politics professor we might remember. At the very least, all the coming political strategists, along with the political-science and history professoriate mining through the Clinton Presidency archives located in Little Rock, will remember in her in their footnotes as they document not one but possibly two Clinton presidencies.

Btw, this picture is pre-Little Rock, I’m pretty sure, but don’t quote me.  What I’ve always wanted to see (and read) is Hillary’s research on Saul Alinsky.  After all, we know Hillary, like Barack Obama, was enamored with this public intellectual, or professor of the streets. This could give us insight into the intersectionality of race, gender, and economics.
