About those tax returns...
RECOVERED HISTORY: HOW HRC USED TO FEEL ABOUT TAX RETURNS

NY TIMES - Mr. Lazio pledged to release his tax returns soon after entering the Senate race in May, but had not done so, raising suspicions about whether he had the kind of financial problems that have tripped up other politicians in New York in recent decades. The campaign of his Democratic opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton, criticized the delay, asking whether he was hiding something. . .

"Rick Lazio can't explain why it took three months to release his taxes," said Howard Wolfson, a Clinton campaign spokesman. . .

Howard Wolfson, the chief spokesman for Mr. Lazio's opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton, even showed up at a Lazio event in Harlem to fan the flames . http://prorev.com/2008/03/recovered-history-how-hrc-use...

4. I kind of like this summary of Hillary and tax releases...
<snip> But that's not what they're doing. So the reasoning is apparently this: "We acted like Lazio's tax returns were a big deal in 2000 because it was in our self-interest to do so, and this year we'll act like our returns aren't a big deal because it's in our self interest to do so. We don't act on principle, and we don't care about being consistent, and we don't care about being hypocritical."

6.  "Mrs. Clinton Portrays Lazio as Bully and Derides His Tax Plan"
So that campaign was basic training for 2008. :shrug:
