宋美龄的一段小情史

宋美龄阅读日本全面投降的新闻

宋美龄和美国国务卿希拉里,有什么共同之处?

两人都有从政的名老公?

答案是,她们都是美国著名的卫斯里学院(Wellesly)的学生。这所学院,以栽培才智杰出的女性闻名于世。

宋美龄1917年英语系毕业;希拉里1969年政治系毕业。

1937年8月,日本侵略上海后,美国的Life(生活)杂志形容宋美龄“也许是世上最有权势的女人。”(“probably the most powerful woman in the world”). Liberty (自由)杂志更如此形容:“亚洲最伟大的男人是个女人。”( “The greatest man in Asia is a woman”).

英国泰晤士报的这篇书评中,有一段宋美龄的情史。书评作者是Brenda Maddox。

1943年宋美龄周游美国,罗斯福总统举止谨慎,不想让她迷倒。罗斯福希望宋美龄快快离开美国,免得再给男人添麻烦。

罗斯福有听闻,坊间有一段宋美龄和Wendell Wilkie(威尔基)神秘交往的谣传。威尔基是罗斯福的前政敌。

据说,威尔基1942年访问中国。‘这个肌肉结实的粗旷男子,把她引入了酒店房里。蒋大元帅在楼下的接待处,怒火中烧,不知道老婆为什么突然不见了?”(The beefy, burly Wilkie seems to have swept her off to his hotel room while the Generalissimo fumed at the reception downstairs at the unexplained absence of his wife. )

威尔基离开中国时,他在众记者面前,还给了宋美龄一个难忘的深情之吻。(Later, when Wilkie was leaving China, he gave her, in full view of reporters, a “terrific soul kiss”.)

过后,宋美龄又在纽约和威尔基相会了。她对威尔基的同行者–出版人Gardner Cowles–说,“如果威尔基当选总统,我们两人将统治世界。我统治东方;他统治西方”( “if Wendell could be elected, then he and I would rule the world. I would rule the Orient and Wendell would rule the Western world.” )

有传言说,宋美龄也曾说过,他的婚姻是一段媒妁之缘,婚姻中无性生活。
