You know, I don’t think I’ve seen the question asked that, if she’s a biographer, why did she need another writer’s help, enough so that the other writer got credit on the book’s cover.
Maybe she WAS a plant.
I have no idea, but it’s worth asking.
In her speech at the University of Denver a few weeks ago, she said that she was a terrible writer and speaker when she enrolled there and that she had to learn quickly because it was a year long program. She probably had help with writing while she was there.
I read somewhere that Broadwell says she has ADD. Writing a dissertation or a book requires focus until the thing is done. Combine a lack of a gift for writing with ADD, and I can see how she would not have her dissertation completed yet. Also, she is writing about Petraeus’ leadership or some such. It is hard to write about something that is still happening. She has no ending. She wants to have all the information possible about him. And she is in obsession with him. Recipe for disaster!
My husband reminds me every time I mention this woman’s name: diaper woman.
I have been thinking that same thing: plant.
