Clinton Sought Revenge After Health Care Fiasco

"Shortly before Hillary Clinton's effort to pass health care reform died in the summer of 1994, the first lady asked a close friend and confidant for advice on "how best to preserve her general memories of the administration and of health care in particular," CNN reports.

"When asked why, according to the friend's June 20, 1994, diary entry, Clinton said, 'Revenge.'

"That exchange is among thousands of pages of notes, letters, and diary entries penned by Diane Blair, a political science professor and longtime Clinton friend whose papers were donated to the University of Arkansas after her death in 2000."
