Hillary Clinton 'Deeply' Loved
Tragic Vince Foster
Says New Book
By John O'Mahony

A new book detailing the Clinton marriage claims first lady Hillary was "deeply in love" with White House lawyer Vince Foster " and that their long-rumored affair was well-known for two decades.
In Bill and Hillary: The Marriage, author Christopher Andersen says Hillary had a hot affair with her law-firm colleague even as her husband cheated on her "with hundreds of women" in Arkansas.
He writes that Clinton friends, legal colleagues and assorted aides and staffers in Little Rock were all aware of the affair, which began in 1977.
Rumors of such an affair have been long-standing, especially since Foster's mysterious suicide in 1995, when Foster was a White House lawyer.
Hillary Clinton's White House press secretary, Marsha Berry, said Monday, "I'm not going to comment on the book at all."
The first lady's Senate exploratory committee spokesman Howard Wolfson also declined comment.
Andersen reports that state troopers assigned to guard the Clintons told him that whenever Bill left the Arkansas governor's mansion, Foster showed up "like clockwork" to comfort Hillary and often stayed the night.
"Hillary and Vince were deeply in love," Trooper L.D. Brown told Andersen.
"I saw them, locked in each other's arms, deep-kissing, nuzzling " you have it."
Brown, who was a confidant of both the Clintons, also told Andersen that Hillary once confessed to him, "There are some things you have to get outside your marriage, that you can't get in it."

Andersen quotes the late Jim McDougal, the Clintons' friend and business partner, as saying, "Everyone knew about Hillary and Vince. But Bill was not really in a position to object, now was he?"
Among the other controversial revelations in the book are:
" Details of the Clintons' window-rattling family rows that Andersen's sources say are as frequent as they are violent and foul-mouthed.
During one of the fights that occurred after Clinton confessed the true nature of his relationship with Sexgate intern Monica Lewinsky, Hillary slapped her husband so hard she left a red mark "clearly visible to Secret Service agents when he left the room."
Andersen claims that during the same row, the first lady screamed at Clinton, "You stupid, stupid, stupid bastard. My God, Bill, how could you risk everything for that?"
" The Clintons' daughter, Chelsea, suffered physically and emotionally through the Sexgate scandal.
Andersen reports Chelsea was admitted to the Stanford University campus hospital three times after she collapsed with severe stomach pains that doctors attributed to stress.
He writes that the symptoms were similar to the anxiety attacks that put Hillary in the emergency room of a Little Rock hospital after she learned of an affair her husband had with the fiancee of a political acquaintance.
" Hillary hired former FBI agent Ivan Duda in 1982 to investigate her husband's extramarital activities. He found that Clinton was seeing eight women "with some degree of frequency." Gennifer Flowers was at the top of the list.
" Hillary insisted Bill be tested for AIDS in 1988. He was HIV-negative but Andersen reports that "someone who claims to have seen" the president's medical records says they reveal he has had a sexually transmitted disease.
It's the reason why the president's complete medical history has never been released, he said.
Anderson also addresses the Juanita Broaddrick rape allegation.
He reports that three weeks after Clinton allegedly forced himself on the Arkansas nurse in a Little Rock hotel in 1978, Hillary strong-armed the woman at a fund-raiser.
Hillary grabbed her arm and told her, "We are so grateful for all you've done for Bill, and all you'll keep doing," Andersen writes.
Broaddrick told Andersen she had no doubt what Hillary meant " "That I was to keep my mouth shut."
Broaddrick told the Post Monday night, however, that she's not sure now if Hillary knew about the alleged rape " or was making the point that she knew, or suspected, something was going on.
"At the time I thought she knew," she said Monday night.
"I thought this woman was telling me, 'I know what happened and you need to keep quiet.' But now I don't know. ... I wish I had said then, 'What do you mean?' I wish someone would ask her now what she meant."
The president's lawyers repeatedly have refused to address the specifics of Broaddrick's allegations.
