Clintonspeak Lesson #1:

Wishing someone well is the diplomatic way of telling him of her to take a long walk off a short pier.

Asked by ABC News’s Diane Sawyer about Republican political strategist Karl Rove saying that Hillary Clinton had suffered a brain injury in a 2012 fall, the former secretary of state said: “I wish him well.”

And in the same prime-time interview aired Monday night, Clinton said of Monica Lewinsky, the former White House intern with whom her husband had an Oval Office affair: “I would wish her well.”

Clinton, interviewed near the eve of publication of her memoir, “Hard Choices,” said she doesn’t spend a lot of time thinking about Lewinsky — who recently wrote about life since her 1990s affair with former President Bill Clinton in Vanity Fair.

“I hope that she is able to think about her future and construct a life that she finds meaning and satisfaction in,” Clinton said.
