    You probably don't. She's the woman who helped set off the whole Petraeus shebang by reporting Paula Broadwell's psychotic emails, the Linda Tripp of our times I guess.

    Now the NYT does this profile on her and, honestly, I couldn't get past the passage where they talk about her and her husband having an oil painting of themselves hung in their home. Who does that?


    I have some sympathy for her privacy being invaded, but it's clear she has a massive ego.

    begs the question, if she was concerned with a low profile why grant an interview now?

    Likely her high powered lawyers put her up to it as a shot over bow
    in law suit. Love when the NYT gets used like this.

    Does she deserve a NYT profile?

    Seems like it's all part of the narrative that her high priced attorneys and pr flacks
    are creating with the NYT as a willing partner.

    Reminds me of one of the greatest lines in "Thank You For Smoking":

    "I presumed anything I said while I was inside you was off the record."

    That was my first thought. Stay out out of my corners.

    I've known a fair number of people who have pastels of their children, and two men who commissioned oil portraits of their wives. No couples.

    Me too. So much so that I picked this thread to be the first of the year to get deleted.
