“At another point, in March, she described Obama as “drawing others cards out of their hands for careful inspection” without reciprocating. “Theres something also there of smoothed veneer, of guardedness … but Im still left with this feeling of … a bit of a wall—the veil,” Cook wrote.Maraniss writes that “when she told him that she loved him, his response was not I love you, too but thank you—as though he appreciated that someone loved him.”
Thank you? Speaks volumes.
