Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign has sent out a fundraising letter calling a Washington Post fashion writer's column on Clinton's cleavage "grossly inappropriate" and asking donors "to take a stand against this kind of coarseness and pettiness in American culture." Givhan, who won a Pulitzer Prize last year, said: " [...] It's disingenuous to think that revealing cleavage, any amount of it, in that kind of situation is a non-issue."
But let it not be said that the issue is not kept into perspective:
"It's obviously not the most important thing in the campaign. It's obviously not the most important thing Hillary Clinton has ever done by any means."
And the unavoidable pun:
Boston Globe columnist Ellen Goodman wrote today that Givhan "managed to make a media mountain out of a half-inch valley."
Ah, these primaries are gonna be fun!
