CLINTON ON POLARIZING PERSONA: ‘I’m Sure They Said that About Churchill’

Twice-failed presidential nominee Hillary Clinton raised eyebrows on both sides of the Atlantic Friday, likening her “polarizing” public persona to Winston Churchill while speaking with a British newspaper.

The former Secretary of State was speaking with Guardian when she was asked to comment on her “polarizing” persona in the United States, saying “I’m sure they said that about Churchill between the wars, didn’t they?”

“I mean, I’m not comparing myself, but I’m just saying people said that, but he was right about Hitler, and a lot of people in England were wrong. And Churchill was a pain. He kept popping up all the time,” she added.

“I love what I do and I care about a lot of things, so I’m very interested in what people are doing to try to figure stuff out and solve problems. So it’s not really work to me. No, it doesn’t feel like work,” said Clinton.
