Sunday evening, as a second woman was preparing to testify that Judge Clarence Thomas also had made unpleasant sexual remarks to her, Senate Republicans and Democrats reached a private agreement that kept the woman off national television. The compromise meant that Angela Wright, who had been fired by Thomas at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, did not provide the testimony that Oklahoma law professor Anita Faye Hill's supporters had deemed crucial to buttressing her credibility.

Through two days of prime-time testimony, Judge Clarence Thomas had constructed a powerful defense against Anita Faye Hill's sensational charges of sexual harassment. Bristling with anger, Thomas "categorically" denied that he ever made sexually explicit comments to Hill or any other co-worker, and never mixed his private and public lives.

And I would have leaked or sought the leak because, early on, the old men of the Judiciary Committee tried to sweep Anita Hill under the rug. But I would not--again, for moral reasons--have been a party to the official smear (Bush's word)
