61. Hillary Clinton is a Rhodes Scholar, and a Senator. Laura Bush is a chainsmoking librarian.

A chainsmoking librarian a monkey.

Let's juxtapose that against someone who's been on the Senate Armed Services committee, Senate Foreign Relations committee, a Rhodes Scholar, and who also happened to be first lady of Arkansas, and then the Nation.

Does that about sum it up for you?
