Hillary, a role model. NOT!

A famous politician speaking to Matt Lauer on the Today Show once said of the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal, "the great story here for anybody willing to find it and write about it and explain it is this vast right-wing conspiracy." She was wrong about that one. DNA proved that the "“great story"” there really was about a President who was reckless enough to have an affair with an intern in the Oval Office and then use his power to orchestrate a coverup. She did have a point, though. Sometimes the "“great story"” isn'’t the one the media is telling, Sometimes it is just as interesting to find out how a story, especially one revealed to be incorrect in so many ways, came to be believed by so many journalists and so widely reported in the first place.

Hillary could have divorced Bill too. By her claiming it was a right-wing conspiracy the NOW people and women's lib movement gave Bill Clinton a pass. After the Lewinsky afair, I gave up on the women's movement. Women's lib did not prepare me to raise a family or get me a better job. I had to learn it on my own. Now we have 'Code Pink' out there protesting our troops as they are bussed to Walter Reed. Hillary whould have done a fine job getting rid of Bill. Then I would have thought of her as a role model. Not!
