HRC: as complex as Nixon?

Ron Rosenbaum on Nixon, Hillary Clinton, and the persistence of the Camelot myth. This story looks cobbled together out of hearsay and speculation, but this made me pause:
Having said that, I must admit something I never thought I'd say: I find Hillary Clinton more of a mystery, perhaps a more complex character in a novelistic sense, than Richard Nixon. And she's one that, unlike Nixon, history may never completely figure out. I'd almost want to see her become president just to solve the mystery. Although a Hillary administration might actually compound it.

Matt Taibbi picked up on this Nixon thread a while back.
