I'd heard the story for years, about how Hillary Clinton supposedly tried reaching out to the ghosts of Eleanor Roosevelt and Mahatma Ghandi. Today I tried hunting down any kernel of truth to be found therein.
Imagine my relief to learn that "Hillary [was helped] to access an 'Eleanor Roosevelt-like consciousness' from within her own psyche (not 'from beyond'), from her own imagination."
Yeah, that's so much better.
I've done that sort of exercise myself, except I was "accessing the consciousness" of a nurse or an astronaut -- and I was seven years old at the time.
