White House Chief of Staff John Podesta announced this week that Cheryl Mills has decided not to be the first black and the first woman to hold the position of White House counsel. Mills was one of the few to emerge from the impeachment hearings of the past winter with her dignity and more — including a growing reputation as a legal star to watch. The young, gifted and black lawyer was a staunch defender of President Clinton. Mills argued that Clinton was “not attractive or admirable,” but that his “record on civil rights, on women’s rights, on all our rights, is unimpeachable.” Mills added, “I stand here before you today because President Bill Clinton believed I could stand here for him.” Maybe, she’ll stand someday for a public office of her own.
