I don’t know what to make of this:
The real reason I was reluctant was that Bill Clinton had tried to beat me up in May of 1990 as he, you, Gloria Cabe, and I were together in the Arkansas governor’s mansion. At the time, Bill was worried that he was falling behind his democratic primary opponent and verbally assaulted me for not giving his campaign the time he felt it deserved. Offended by his harsh tone, I turned and stalked out of the room.
Bill ran after me, tackled me, threw me to the floor of the kitchen in the mansion and cocked his fist back to punch me. You grabbed his arm and, yelling at him to stop and get control of himself, pulled him off me. Then you walked me around the grounds of the mansion in the minutes after, with your arm around me, saying, “He only does that to people he loves.”
Most of the time when Bill tackles people (women, volunteers, interns, etc.), that is when the real ‘fun’ starts.

Now, John, assuming this story is TRUE (dubious proposition- consider the source), it reaffirms my faith in humanity.
It means BILL CLINTON tried to beat the crap out of DICK MORRIS, (and HILLARY CLINTON physically intervened to separate them.)
And I thought Bill Clinton was a man whose character was, well, pretty much devoid of character. If he really DID try to beat the crap out of Dick Morris, what can I say? I stand corrected.
CNN notes that Clinton admitted to one interviewer that he had manhandled Morris roughly and to another, he admitted to slapping him.
