I can’t remember the last time I heard Hillary referred to as “Hillary Rodham Clinton,” as her daughter Chelsea just did. This was her handle early in the 1992 campaign, but she quickly dropped it when it seemed to mark her as a feminist career woman instead of a devoted wife. Chelsea seemed to make a great point of pronouncing the “Rodham.” I wonder if there is some additional layer of meaning to that. Like when John Cougar became John Cougar Mellencamp became John Mellencamp?
