I guess it does take some courage to lie to the public every time you talk, but she allievated much of any discomfort she may have felt in that regard when she stopped giving press briefings (i.e., stopped doing her job). Still, private life in Arkansas will no doubt be more soothing.
Actually, she DIDN'T do the job. Her legacy as press secretary is to be the first one to stop holding press briefings (while still taking taxpayer money to do so).
As for the "animousity and enmity the press people had for the woman," pfft. Before she stopped doing her job altogether, she lied on a daily basis and dodged giving answers to legitimate questions, the answers to which the American public is entitled. Answering such questions is the press secretary's job. If she can't handle it, the answer was doing months or years ago what she's doing now: resigning.
I'm sure you're aware of who her boss was, and what her job was at the white house. As I'm sure you are aware of the animosity and enmity the press people had for the woman.
Yet she did the job for what? two years? or so.
I wouldn't want that job after two minutes let alone two years, no matter who the boss was.
YMMV of course
I am aware that her boss was the most mendacious and thin-skinned president ever. I am aware that her job was to repeat his lies with a straight face. Which she did (until, as Cass points out, she didn't).
