Benazir Bhutto: A Tale of Two Legacies

One person,  Benazir Bhutto, one death, two Posts, Washington and New York  and two completely different takes.  

David Ignatius, Washington Post, came to laud the late Benazir Bhutto, via RCP [1]:

Try to imagine a young Pakistani woman bounding into the newsroom of the Harvard Crimson in the early 1970s and banging out stories about college sports teams with the passion of a cub reporter. That was the first glimpse some of us had of Benazir Bhutto. We had no idea she was Pakistani political royalty. She was too busy jumping into her future to make a show of her past

Not so with, Ralph Peters, New York Post [2], via RCP.  Peter comes to bury Bhutto:

A creature of insatiable ambition, Bhutto will now become a martyr. In death, she may pay back some of the enormous debt she owes her country

Ignatius’ take may well explain Mrs. Clinton’s attempt to align herself in Bhutto’s public image, brave pioneering feminist.    Peters’ may touch on the truth, greedy politician lusting for power and wealth. ?
