Watching the charmless Hillary last night, I suddenly remembered something Saul Bellow said about her when I interviewed him in 1995. She is, he said, 'a broad'. He meant, I presume, she was like one of those tough, knowing, life-worn women, usually seen in dark gangster films. Or something like that. Anyway, the accuracy of the term made the old man smile and, thirteen years later, with Hill toughing it out in the face of defeat, it made me laugh.
