DAVID CLARKE: The reason why they don't like Mrs. Bill Clinton is not because she's a woman, it's because she's dishonest and because she is hiding something. She's hiding the truth. She try to play herself off as a victim like she's Little Red Riding Hood but she's more like the Big Bad Wolf, as soon as you turn your back on her, she'll bite you. Now, look, this is politics. It's a contact sport. It's not for the faint of heart. My response to what President Obama said is, if she can't stand the heat, she should get out of the kitchen.
MEGYN KELLY (HOST): Julie?
JULIE ROGINSKY: Well, first and foremost, I think you just proved my point, Sheriff. And, you and I were on Outnumbered last week and I love you, but she's not Mrs. Bill Clinton. She happens to be Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is her own person running as an individual. She's a former Senator, she is a [former] secretary of state. She's not "Mrs. Bill Clinton," and I think you encapsulated why a lot of women think --
CLARKE: It's not my job to give you her bio.
ROGINSKY: It's not her bio, but it's also not your job to assume that she's just a little woman who is married to Mr. Bill --
CLARKE: She has run with that name for a long time.
ROGINSKY: Well, she runs with that name because she happens to be married to the former president, but she's certainly not "Mrs. Bill Clinton."
CLARKE: Right. She should embrace it.
ROGINSKY: Well, no, she shouldn't embrace it, she should embrace the fact that she's a very accomplished lawyer in her own right, a very accomplished woman in her own right. And you just proved my point.
