I love cats. But can it really be true that Hillary Clinton might fare less well with voters because of what she did to hers? We're not talking animal torture here, or letting the poor creature starve. It's only that when the Clintons left the White House, Socks was handed on into the care of someone else. It's a common enough thing to do, finding another home for your pet, and if the home is good, surely not a damning one. However:
"In the annals of human evil, off-loading a pet is nowhere near the top of the list," writes Caitlin Flanagan in the current issue of The Atlantic magazine. "But neither is it dead last..."The world, you may already have noted, is a less than perfect place. If Clinton misses out on a single vote for this reason, it would be one more piece of evidence of just how messed up the world is.
