Connie Bruck, “Hillary the Pol,” New Yorker, May 30, 1994:

Betsey Wright told me that Hillary had, on occasion, confided her personal troubles to her. “Hillary can separate personal emotions from the goal and task ahead in a way that very few women can,” Wright said. “That is part of the investment in the marriage — the ability to keep going when others would have a cry, at the very least, before they go on. She knows it’s there, knows it hurts, knows it’s wrong, but she controls it as a separate thing from what the goal or project is.” To the suggestion that Hillary deals with emotions in a way that is more typical of many men, Wright replied, “I don’t even think men do it the way Hillary does. It is such an extreme extension of self-discipline that it is not even self-discipline.”
