Head game

Posted By on Thu, Jul 20, 2006 at 5:28 AM

Brummett meets with another Clinton author, John Gartner, who is working on a psychoanalytical book about Clinton and whether he's a "hypomanic."

The hypomanic person, as Gartner explained, lives in a place of high brilliance with low insanity not far away. His condition impels him to invention, innovation, entrepreneurial venture, maybe even the presidency.

He tends to be charismatic. He also tends to have a stuck accelerator. He's impulsive, risk-taking, perhaps sexually indiscreet, given to grandiosity, unconfined by convention and consumed excitedly with ideas, some great, some absurd.
