Hillary, Inc.

Still, the fact that he felt comfortable asking this during his interview perhaps speaks volumes; Moore goes one step further by suggesting that a position on Team Hillary will actually contribute to a male staffer’s evolution."I’ve worked with some men who, when they walk in the door, you are — whoompf! Because you know what’s coming: It will be all about them," she says. "But I can tell you the gentlemen here are fine and decent people…. They have grown to a point where I think we are making them better husbands, better boyfriends, because they hear more about things that happen to women than they would traditionally have heard.""That’s the great thing about Hillary," Solis Doyle says, fully aware that in describing a leadership model for a presidential campaign, she is also offering a leadership model for running a country in challenging, worrisome times. "She encourages everybody to speak their mind. If you disagree with something, tell us. Tell us why you think this is a bad thing. But at a certain point, okay," — here she claps her hands, with a crisp crack — "we’ve heard from all of you, and now we have to make a decision. We have to all get on the same page, and we have to go. There’s not a lot of woulda, coulda, shoulda with Hillary. After the decision is made, we’re a team. And I’m really, really proud of that."Because, as the women of Hillary Inc. know full well, anything can happen. At any time. Right up until the very end, when the voter stands alone with that ballot.But the bag is packed.Originally published in MORE magazine, February 2008.
