Somehow I wound up here.
The Hofstadter quote I wish they’d kept:
In the end, I doubt if her departure from the race will diminish her reputation for superhuman control. In this reimagining of Hofstadter’s paranoid relationship, the press corps and pundits see in Hillary what she saw in Scaife and Gingrich. We may have vanquished her, but, as Hofstatder put it, “[e]ven partial success leaves [the paranoid] with the same feeling of powerlessness with which he began, and this in turn only strengthens his awareness of the vast and terrifying quality of the enemy he opposes.”
