Go to and check out Bill Clinton's syrupy, five- minute ad for Hillary. He introduces the
commercial by saying that he wants to share some things we may not know
about Hillary's background. His version of her biography is about as
reliable as if it appeared in Pravda!

So, I wanted to make a few corrections;

Bill says: Hillary never wanted to run for public office, but she did want
to work at public service.

The facts are: When Clinton was considering not running for another term as
Governor of Arkansas in 1990, Hillary said she would run if he didn't. She
and Bill even had me take two surveys to assess her chances of winning.
The conclusion was that she couldn't win because people would just see her
as a seat warmer for when Bill came back, licking his wounds after losing
for president. So she didn't run. Bill did and won. But there is no
question, she had her eye on public office, as opposed to service, long ago.

Bill says: In law school Hillary worked on legal services for the poor.

The facts are: Hillary's main extra-curricular activity in law school was
helping the Black Panthers, on trial in Connecticut for torturing and
killing a federal agent. She went to court every day as part of a law
student monitoring committee trying to spot civil rights violations and
develop grounds for appeal.

Bill says: Hillary spent a year after graduation working on a children's
rights project for poor kids.

The facts are: Hillary interned with Bob Truehaft, the head of the
California Communist Party. She met Bob when he represented the Panthers,
and traveled all the way to San Francisco to take an internship with him.

Bill says: Hillary could have written her own job ticket, but she turned
down all the lucrative job offers.

The facts are: She flunked the D.C. bar exam and only passed the Arkansas
bar. She had no job offers in Arkansas, and only got hired by the
University of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville because Bill was already
teaching there. She only joined the prestigious Rose Law Firm after Bill
became Attorney General, and made partner only after he was elected

Bill says: President Carter appointed Hillary to the Legal Services Board
of Directors, and she became its chairman.

The facts are: The appointment was in exchange for Bill's support for
Carter in his 1980 primary against Ted Kennedy. Hillary became chairman in
a coup in which she won a majority away from Carter's choice to be chairman.

Bill says: She served on the board of the Arkansas Children's Hospital.

The facts are: Yes she did. But her main board activity, not mentioned by
Bill, was to sit on the Walmart board of directors, for a substantial fee.
She was silent about their labor and health care practices.

Bill says: Hillary didn't succeed at getting health care for all Americans
in 1994, but she kept working at it, and helped to create the Children's
Health Insurance Program (CHIP), that provides five million children with
health insurance.

The facts are: Hillary had nothing to do with creating CHIP. It was
included in the budget deal between Clinton and Republican Majority Leader
Senator Trent Lott. I helped to negotiate the deal. The money came half
from the budget deal and half from the Attorney Generals' tobacco
settlement. Hillary had nothing to do with either source of funds.

Bill says: Hillary was the face of America all over the world

The facts are: Her visits were part of a program to get her out of town so
that Bill would not appear weak by feeding stories that Hillary was running
the White House. Her visits abroad were entirely touristic and symbolic,
and there was no substantive diplomacy on any of them

Bill says: Hillary was an excellent Senator, who kept fighting for
children's and women's issues.

The facts are: Other than totally meaningless legislation, like changing
the names on courthouses and post offices, she has passed only four
substantive pieces of legislation: One set up a national park in Puerto
. A second provided respite care for family members helping their
relatives through Alzheimer's or other conditions. And two were routine
bills to aid 9-11 victims and responders, which were sponsored by the entire
NY delegation.

Here is what bothers me more than anything else about Hillary Clinton: She
has done everything possible to weaken the President and our country when it
comes to the war on terror.

1. She wants to close GITMO & move the combatants to the U. S. A., where
they would have access to our legal system.

2. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of suspected Al Qeada phone calls
to/from the U. S. A..

3. She wants to grant constitutional rights to enemy combatants captured on
the battlefield.

4. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of money transfers between
suspected Al Qeada cells & supporters In the U. S. A..

5. She wants to eliminate the type of interrogation tactics used by the
military & CIA where coercion might be used when questioning known
terrorists, even though such tactics might save American lives.

I can't think of a single bill Hillary has introduced or a single comment
she has made that would tend to strengthen our country in the War on Terror.
But I can think of a lot of comments she has made that weakens our country &
makes it a more dangerous situation for all of us. She goes hand-in-hand
with the ACLU on far too many issues where common sense is abandoned.

She is a disaster for all Americans.
