WASHINGTON (CNN) — First lady Hillary Rodham Clinton held imaginary conversations with Eleanor Roosevelt and Mahatma Gandhi as a therapeutic release, according to a new book written by Bob Woodward, says a report in Sunday’s edition of The Chicago Sun-Times.
The first lady declined a personal adviser’s suggestion that she address Jesus Christ, however, because it would be “too personal,” according to Woodward’s book, “The Choice.”
The book, which is still to be published, takes a behind-the-scenes look at the Clintons, as well as Bob and Elizabeth Dole.
Woodward says the adviser was Jean Houston, co-director of the Foundation for Mind Research, which he describes as a group that studies the psychic experience and altered and expanded consciousness.
The book portrays Houston as an influential adviser who urged Mrs. Clinton to write her book, “It Takes a Village and Other Lessons Children Teach Us,” and in the process “virtually moved into the White House” for days at a time to help with revisions, the Sun-Times reported.
Woodward suggests the White House hoped to keep Mrs. Clinton’s relationship with Houston and her talks with the dead a secret.
