14. Interesting that Marion Wright Edelman (Children's Defense Fund) has not endorsed HRC
This is relevant because HRC and her supporters make much of HRC's time (I believe only 6 months) at the CDF - as evidence of HRC's devotion to children's welfare.

I recalled hearing that Ms. Edelman had been estranged from the Clintons years ago, but haven't been able to find much on the web, except this blog comment:

"You mean the Children's Defense Fund headed by Marion Edelman who said the Clintons were no friends to children because they left the childcare subsidies behind in the Welfare Reform Act, that CDF, who also said tens of thousands if not more kids were pushed into poverty as a result? And the migrant workers still exploited, working and living in abominable conditions, during and after the Clintons' administrations? And the fairness of Brown v. Brd of Ed, how's that going? Oh, yeah, schools are still mostly funded by private property taxes, corporations exempt, and the Clintons didn't establish a federal equal funding system in two terms as they were too busy losing their majority in Congress and millions of kids have gotten substandard education since just because they live in poor communities."
