It's been a long road for Hillary.
From a conservative Suburban Chicago family to liberal candidate for President of the United States, she is a paradox in a dilemma of policy expediency that rivals Kerry for flip-flopping.
A lot of the right wagged their tongues about her opportunism in marrying a young Southern law teacher and congressional candidate. She eventually helped him get elected to Arkansas Governor, then POTUS. She stood by him as he deceived, cheated on, and humiliated her, and his country. She lied and blamed others to keep them in the White House.
Hillary made her deal with the Devil.
Hate the weed, but admire its tenacity.
As part of the pact, now Senator Clinton, put up with shenanigans most wives wouldn't tolerate. Speculation was Hillary would get her shot at president after her morally challenged philanderer husband got his.
Now that Hillary has been slated as the newest and bestest hypocrite….I mean liberal, (silly me) she is divesting herself of previous conservative poses. Lest those that claim ownership of the Democratic Party abandon her, she has changed positions multiple times with a cacophony of excuses, without apologizing or winking. What's amazing is many people actually buy her obvious political floundering and dishonesty.
Even the best of the libs must rid herself of stock ownership in evil corporations, as soon as its publicity has been properly forecast.
Hillary sold her Wal~Mart stock. Guess that would be too much for left-wingers to digest, since the big box store is their major target.
"RESERVED FOR SECRET SERVICE"
I have a personal insight into Hillary's loath-hate link to business. Somehow she accumulated stock in companies including Wal~Mart as she consistently bashed business along typical liberal lines.
A friend and fellow business owner, invited me to a Wal~Mart golf tournament in Mountain View, Missouri, in 1993. He said David Glass, Chairman of the Wal~Mart Board and the first CEO to follow retail oracle Sam Walton in that position, was an old buddy and would also be presiding. He didn't have to ask me twice. Wal~Mart events are terrific fundraisers for charity and the prizes to the hackers, are many. It's real win-win.
The previous night I had been at a fundraiser for then Senator John Ashcroft on a farm, just outside of St. Louis. The featured speaker was George H. W. Bush, the current President's father.
After Bush Sr's hilarious diatribe, I was waiting in line to shake Ashcroft's hand. I saw a white cardboard sign on several tables that read, "RESERVED FOR SECRET SERVICE."
I couldn't resist…, I stole one and stuck it in my sports coat.
The following day at the golf tournament I gave my buddy the Secret Service sign to give to David Glass. Glass agreed to meet me.
As he was expressing thanks for the Secret Service poster, which he had attached to his golf cart, I noticed him staring at the Jewish star hanging around my neck.
His demeanor changed. What came next made my putter drop.
"It's people like YOU that got Bill Clinton elected."
Stunned that a CEO of Mr. Glass's stature could be that ridiculous, I still managed to respond, "It wasn't ME that put Hillary on HIS board of directors."
His eyes widened, his face turned red. I responded quicker than you can say squiggly, "What's wrong with your stock? I bought it several years ago and it hasn't moved an inch!"
Tragedy avoided, Glass went on defense. "I DON'T KNOW. THAT STOCK SHOULD BE WAY UP!"
Then Glass toned it down a bit and revealed that he knew ten more scandalous things about the male part of the PP (Presidential Partnership) than was already reported by the press. "I talk to him (Clinton) every day and the only good thing he's done is NAFTA." Then he gave this revealing insight into Hillary. "We tried to teach Hillary about business, but she's nothing but a G-d damned lawyer!"
In defense of Hillary, she married now multi-millionaire and recipient of Arab money on a par with Osama, her PP emeritus, Bubba. Early on she made $100,000 profit in cattle futures.
She also invested heavily in Wal~Mart stock, a favorite target of left wingers throughout the coasts.
Former supporter, Hollywood mogul, David Geffen had it right when said, "Everyone in politics lies, but the Clintons do it with such ease."
Hillary is blessed.
She found her special talent.
