Hillary Clinton - Are You Experienced?
Four whole pages dedicated to the Hillary and what she has done. Her accomplishments could be covered in a sentence.
As first lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton jawboned the president of Uzbekistan to leave his car and shake hands with people. She argued with the Czech prime minister about democracy. She cajoled Catholic and Protestant women to talk to one another in Northern Ireland. She traveled to 79 countries in total, little of it leisure; one meeting with mutilated Rwandan refugees so unsettled her that she threw up afterward.
But during those two terms in the White House, Clinton did not hold a security clearance. She did not attend National Security Council meetings. She was not given a copy of the president's daily intelligence briefing. She did not assert herself on the crises in Somalia, Haiti or Rwanda. And during one of President Bill Clinton's major tests on terrorism, whether to bomb Afghanistan and Sudan in 1998, Clinton was barely speaking to her husband, let alone advising him, as the Lewinsky scandal dragged on.(LINK)
Sen Clinton touts her record everyday according to the article. What record? Her failed attempts at a health care program? It is good to see the press calling her out on it.
To be fair, there are others running for the POTUS that also have lackluster records in the senate. Obama who? McCain has some legislation leadership experience, but I did not care for some of it - McCain/Feingold. Fred Thompson? Well he did strongly support McCain and his efforts. When weighed and measured they all fall short on any accomplishments.
God forbid we would bring up military experience. The left and right are both silent on that issue with the exceptions of Duncan Hunter and John McCain. Was that issue not a hot topic during Bush/Kerry and here in Virginia during Allen/Webb? You don't hear the left hollering Chicken Hawk now do ya. That very important factor has been abandoned it seems. CONvenient indeed.
