LOS ANGELES -- Shelby Lynne, hiding behind vintage sunglasses and a casual sneer, slumped back against a bus-stop bench on Sunset Boulevard and checked her cell phone one more time. Lynne's manager was still fighting cross-town traffic, and the singer was overdue for a lunchtime appointment with a pitcher of margaritas. "You'll like me better after a couple of drinks," the country singer said. "After a few, I'll say anything." Lynne likes to have fun with her reputation. Back in the 1990s, when she was a newcomer in Nashville, Tenn.

If all you knew about Tammy Wynette were the titles in her hit parade, she probably seemed like a walking contradiction.In some songs, she came across as the Queen of Bad Relationships, bemoaning bad men and broken marriages in such hits as "I Don't Wanna Play House" and "D-I-V-O-R-C-E." But in other songs, Wynette stood as the last true believer in feminine fidelity, telling "The Ways To Love a Man" and urging women to "Stand By Your Man."But that seeming contradiction was the heart of her appeal.

This is the Year of the Woman in country music, too."Yep, I guess it's the girls' night out, and it's great," says Suzy Bogguss, who just won the Country Music Association's big newcomer-of-the-year award, a category that included two other women, Pam Tillis and Trisha Yearwood, among the five finalists.All three women currently have albums among the Top 100 on the pop music charts. So do Mary-Chapin Carpenter, Wynonna Judd, Tanya Tucker, Reba McEntire and Lorrie Morgan.Bubbling just below them are Kathy Mattea, Patty Loveless, Holly Dunn, Alison Krauss, Nanci Griffith, Lucinda Williams, Michelle Wright, Rosie Flores and Paulette Carlson.

So this candidate's wife is being assessed all over again, as if she were a piece of property. Her value seems to go up and down with every rumor in the marketplace, taking her husband's business along for the ride.Just last month, Hillary Clinton was Bill's greatest asset. She was the one who stripped the poison petals off Gennifer Flowers' story. This was no wronged wife, long suffering abuse. She was the latest model in political wives, an independent lawyer and political partner.Now she's being talked about as a debit.

It is always difficult to know when one should print humiliating and unconfirmable rumors about famous people.But the standard seems to be: When the rumors are really, really juicy.So on March 22, Newsweek printed this about Hillary Clinton: "Who cares about health care? What's this we hear about lamp-tossing?"If the public at large was confused by this, reporters who cover the White House were not.Both Hillary and Bill have real tempers and while their flare-ups have occasionally been witnessed in public, these are nothing, rumor has it, compared to their private ill-humors.
