If Hillary had the character of Elin Nordegren she might be President now.

If Hillary had the character of Elin Nordegren she might be President now.

Elin Nordegren, in her recent interview with People Magazine lays out clearly the Tiger Woods Sex scandal from her point of view:

"I have been through the stages of disbelief and shock, to anger and ultimately grief over the loss of the family I so badly wanted for my children..."

Notice the quiet clarity Nordegren brings to her reaction and process of dealing with Wood's betrayal of his vows to her. Elin and her career were not her first priority; her children and maintaining her family, were. Her statement is a bell that rings true for anyone, who has experienced personal betrayal - - which was actually a surprise. Clearly, Elin is not a serial enabler bent on maintaining a false image for her personal career ambitions.

Nordegren did not have a "Bimbo Eruption Squad" to maintain her myth. There is no effort to excuse Tiger's behavior - refreshing. There was no attempt to blame the "vast golf groupie conspiracy."

Elin Nordegren continues:

"My immediate plan is for the kids and me to continue to adjust to our new situation. I am going to keep taking classes, but my main focus is to try to give myself time to heal,"

Here is a woman who has been shockingly betrayed but does not take the easy low road of faux denial but faces the truth and proceeds with her life on her own terms. By doing so, Nordegren provides her children with a role model who has character.

Contrast Nordegren's honesty with Hillary's repeated attempts to blame the "vast rightwing conspiracy" and ABB (Anybody But Bubba) to preserve her political powerbase, the White House and her candidacy.

Perhaps, if Hillary had stood up for herself, as a woman betrayed and "would not take it anymore" she might have actually become the experienced self-sufficient woman she claims to be and the President of the United States.
