Hope For Hillary

A reader writes:

I am in my twenties. I have only vague, pre-politically-conscious memories of Hillary's early, controversial career as First Lady. My less vague memories are of her as a dutiful if duplicitous wife in difficult circumstances. Finally, having lived in NYC for the last six years, I know of Hillary as a popular Senator successful way beyond expectations at representing most spectrums of the state competently and fairly, including the mostly Republican northern and rural areas of the state.

So, can you or one of your readers please explain why on earth she is so loathed? By figures on both the left and right?

I understand disliking her, but hating her, often with a ferocious passion - I'm having a hard time understanding it.

Me too. Even when I feel it.
