One of those hard choices is whether or not to give arms. military weapons, to questionable, quirky people we don't know a bleeping thing about. And apparently they usually get them.

From my view, Hillary Clinton is trapped in a very sticky situation. She must continue on with what the abominable Reagan and Bushes started......or look like she's going against her country if she doesn't.

I cannot picture what this world is going to be like in 10 years. When are the wars ever going to stop?

Shouldn't this book be a work of Fiction?

Hillary Clinton tells us she and Bill were poor when the left the White House and moved into a mansion in the state of New York, complete with a maid. [That is poor?] She neglects to mention her neocon appointments at State, such as Marc Grossman and Victoria Nuland, nor does Hillary take any responsibility for the overthrow of President Zelaya of Honduras which [at least in part, if not completely] financed by the MCC, which Hillary chaired. Hillary neglects to mention her anti-worker biases, as in her support of the Indian jobs offshoring outfit, the Tata Consultancy [which was a donor of hers] and a host of other votes as senator against American workers. As a real democrat, I found Clinton anything but!
