Clinton hot and bothered over cleavage report

WASHINGTON - Hillary Clinton's handlers are so outraged - outraged! - at a newspaper story musing over her showing a little cleavage that they're urging equally miffed supporters to fight back by stuffing cash into her coffers.
"Would you believe that The Washington Post wrote a 746-word article on Hillary's cleavage?" senior campaign adviser Ann Lewis said yesterday in the fund-raising e-mail.
"Frankly, focusing on women's bodies instead of their ideas is insulting. It's insulting to every woman who has ever tried to be taken seriously in a business meeting," Lewis wrote.
The offending Post article appeared last week in the Style section after Clinton delivered a higher education speech on the Senate floor that was carried on C-SPAN2. The story's focus wasn't student loan policy.
"She was wearing a rose-colored blazer over a black top. The neckline sat low on her chest and had a subtle V-shape. The cleavage registered after only a quick glance. No scrunch-faced scrutiny was necessary," The Post reported. "There wasn't an unseemly amount of cleavage showing, but there it was. Undeniable."
A longtime Democratic operative who is no Clinton fan said it wasn't surprising that Team Hillary would try to generate a sympathy backlash - and then ask for cash to help ease the pain.
"She looks for every opportunity she can get to be the victim. It's her playbook," the party source said. "The question is whether Hillary-as-victim leaves her looking more like a martyr or a whiner."
A Republican operative mocked the controversy as "a tempest in a B-cup."
Others believe Team Hillary's pique is justified.
"They're right to object," said feminist author and activist Naomi Wolf. "It's so trivial for the press to waste its time on this while our sons and daughters are dying in Iraq."
The campaign's anger over the article "is a natural reaction," added Georgetown University linguistics Prof. Deborah Tannen, author of "You're Wearing That?"
"She might as well turn it to her advantage, and it is an advantage - and it is also maddening," Tannen said. "It's a real double bind that men don't face."
But the press did giggle this week at John Edwards for wearing skintight Lycra cycling shorts while riding with cancer survivor and seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong.
Clinton, meanwhile, was back in her standard uniform yesterday: dark pants suit with a ruffled, frilly shirt that bared nothing.
