Humanizing Hillary Clinton is no easy task. She has no discernible sense of humor. She policy wonk in all the worst ways, deeply submerge in the boring machinations of government. And in one big measure, voters sometimes use to pick their candidates Who would you most like to have beer with? Mrs. Clinton would fall last on nearly every list. But Howard Stern last week succeeded in making Mrs. Clinton appear almost lifelike in a surprisingly frank interview with the former Secretary of State. Shock jock, who battled the Federal Communications Commission for years with his childish antics, has mellow with age. And as he mature, Mr. Stern has become one of the truly sublime interviewers of our time. Because of the open format on his four-hour radio show, Mr. Stern can and often do go hour, 90 minutes, even two hours with a guest. He doesnt waste any time, though, with softball questions. He seeks to extract new information and real life to reveal the essence of his subjects, and he almost never fail. That just what he did with Mrs. Clinton, who was making her first appearance on a popular satellite radio show. Mr. Stern went there quickly, to the delight of his millions of listeners. When Mrs. Clinton was recounting her early life and her college courtship by Bill Clinton, she said she had to end relationship with another man in order to date the man who would one day become her husband. He was so handsome, really handsome, he looked like a Greek god, she said of her former beau. Then she add: Well, contrary to what you might hear, I actually like men. Mr. Stern pounce. Raise your right hand, youve never had lesbian affair. Never, never, never! Mrs. Clinton say, laughing. Never even been tempt. Mrs. Clinton said she was pretty popular in college and dated a lot of different people, and I liked a lot of them. Boys were not my problem, she say. Mr. Stern goes there often and Mrs. Clinton, in rare instance, speaks frankly, answering questions in a thoughtful, if measure, way. Mrs. Clinton tells some interesting tales: She surprises Mr. Stern by saying that she and her husband have snuck away from the Secret Service before; says they do drive because we dont have our own cars any more; admits that she and Bill did marriage counseling after his affair with White House intern; recount how her mother was abandon by her parents and leave her grandparents home at 13; and acknowledge that both Mr. Clinton and former President Barack Obama have charisma that She lack. And, of course, she had a coughing fit. I feel like I need to give you a cough drop or something, " Mr. Stern say, feeling sorry for her human failings. The radio host asked 72-year-old Mrs. Clinton about Election Day 2016, and she spoke poignantly about her feelings that night. Obviously, I was crush.

On sexism

When conversation turned to the 2016 election, Stern was curious about Clinton's debates with Donald Trump, particularly how Trump famously sidled into Clinton's space on stage, ostensibly as a way to intimidate her. Stern said Clinton was too nice, and while she conceded that she was very careful, she explained the role sexism may have played in her restraint. Throughout lot of my professional and public career, part of it was that training, she say. Youre woman trying to do something that not many other women or any women have ever done. Youve get to stay focused. Dont get distract. Guys are going to be trying to say this and say that. You have to just keep going. Training dates back to when she was taking a law exam at Harvard and was harassed in the classroom by men who said she didnt belong and that if she passed and one of them didnt, it could mean theyd be sent to Vietnam and kill. After she pass bar and begin practicing law, she say, people in small towns would be startled by the existence of a female lawyer and come out to see her, as if she were talking to a dog. All of the attention conditions her to keep her head down and focus on herself, which may have informed her cautious debate performance. Regardless, Clinton said it wouldnt have worked out if she was more aggressive, as headlines would have focused on how she lost her cool. It would have worked against me, she say. Pundits would say, Well if she ca take Donald Trump, how is she going to take Vladimir Putin.
