The Hillary Clinton Experience

Clinton on her "experience." From Tuesday's Investor's Business Daily:

"You know," she said, "helping to support the peace process in Northern Ireland, negotiating to open borders so that (Kosovar) refugees fleeing ethnic cleansing would be safe, going to Beijing and standing up for women's rights as human rights and so much else."

First, she never played a key role in brokering peace in Northern Ireland, according to former first minister David Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) , who said she had no direct role in the talks. Her husband, the president, was engaged in the talks, yes, said Trimble.

Hillary also says she was instrumental in pressing Beijing on human rights. But she carried no official portfolio while speaking on women's rights there.
In fact, Hillary did not attend any National Security Council meetings. She never sat in the Situation Room during Desert Fox or the Kosovo war, or read in on presidential security briefings. Nor was she part of the Cabinet.

Too bad they won't have another debate to discuss all this "experience." Maybe Chelsea can live in the White House with her should she win the nomination. That way, by the end of Hillary's second term, Chelsea will have 16 years of "experience."

And by this logic, Roger Clemens' wife might be a good candidate for the Cubs' fifth starter spot, right? After all, she's been around a lot of baseball, she's won a lot of championships.

And yes, I know the font is smaller for some reason.

I'll stick by my stance that Blogger really, really sucks. Be forewarned that a lot of these issues occur when you cut and paste.
