Clinton: ‘Can You Believe We Are Still Fighting’ Over Contraception?

Hillary Clinton and Neera Tandan, president of the liberal Center for American Progress, exchanged a bewildered series of emails in early 2012, expressing disappointment over having to discuss issues related to contraception, and alluding to some Democrats’ lingering fear of the Catholic Church.

Clinton emailed Tanden on March 18, 2012, “Can you believe we are still fighting this battle?”

Tanden had emailed the secretary of state to point her in the direction of her column, entitled “The 1990s Roots of the Contraception Battle.”

The article speaks glowingly of Clinton’s efforts on the issue.
