11. YES! - I have been thinking about this question for some time -

My answer is YES - and here is why....understanding I have no inside knowledge, just a high level of awareness through what I read. Through the years, since Hillary came on the scene, she has been a force for women, children and families. She has been politically active since the Goldwater campaign - and yes, she was a Goldwater gal...then she moved center from Goldwater - good move.

Keep in mind, this whole untrustworthiness, purely political....

As first Lady of Arkansas she worked diligently on education issues..I did watch the documentary and gained even more insight as to her character, you cannot hide from the camera. She is Wellesley grad (I'm from same era, and Massachusetts, Wellesley College, fabulous learning environment - very high academic requirements to qualify for acceptance) - and here is her commencement speech..



1969 grad - the challenge now is to practice politics as the art of making what appears to be impossible possible. What does it mean to hear that 13.3 percent of the people in this country are below the poverty line? That's a percentage. We're not interested in social reconstruction; it's human reconstruction - she talks further about integrity, trust and respect....

During the Healthcare debate during Bill Clintons first presidency, this is where the rub took place..the men in congress felt threatened, therefore the start of the untrustworthiness..created and nurtured by weak minded men..


this ....snip...on Hillary 1993..hey look - it's Kristol...

Prominent opposition to the Clinton plan was led by William Kristol and his policy group Project for the Republican Future, which is widely credited with orchestrating the plan's defeat through a series of now legendary "policy memos" faxed to Republican leaders.[13]
The long-term political effects of a successful... health care bill will be even worseŚmuch worse.... It will revive the reputation of... Democrats as the generous protector of middle-class interests. And it will at the same time strike a punishing blow against Republican claims to defend the middle class by restraining government.

Ś William Kristol, "Defeating President Clinton's Healthcare Proposal", December 1993

And then there is this review..re Hillary and Healthcare...


And this -


be well..we can do this....
