NYT: The Resume Factor
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 07:21 PM by FLDem5
Worth a re-read

But during those two terms in the White House, Mrs. Clinton did not hold a security clearance. She did not attend National Security Council meetings. She was not given a copy of the presidents daily intelligence briefing. She did not assert herself on the crises in Somalia, Haiti and Rwanda.

And during one of President Bill Clintons major tests on terrorism, whether to bomb Afghanistan and Sudan in 1998, Mrs. Clinton was barely speaking to her husband, let alone advising him, as the Lewinsky scandal sizzled.

<snip>
Mrs. Clintons role in her most high-profile assignment as first lady, the failed health care initiative of the early 1990s, has been well documented. Yet little has been made public about her involvement in foreign policy and national security as first lady. Documents about her work remain classified at the National Archives. Mrs. Clinton has declined to divulge the private advice she gave her husband.

<snip>
Asked about her role in Somalia and Haiti, Mr. Christopher said in an interview, She wasnt at any of the meetings in the Oval Office or cabinet room, and didnt take any formal role that I saw. Mr. Christopher is supporting Mrs. Clinton for president.


lots of really great stuff.

4. he should answer this "3:00 am" crap with exactly those points
...ding, ding, ding, right down the line. Over and over and over and over and over and over again until our ears bleed. That's how it's done. Without a single nasty insult flung in her direction.
