Hillary's tax returns


As one woman I know (and obviously not a Hillary fan) put it, "She grows up in an upper middle-class suburb of Chicago. She attends a prestigious Seven Sisters college. She goes to law school, meets and marries this guy who goes on to become governor of Arkansas. He wins the Presidency. After she's through being First Lady, she searches around for a Democratic state to carpetbag into and wins the Senate race based on her last name. Now she's running for President with that same basic qualification: her last name. Give ME some of that discrimination!"

Let's hear from you, Girls.

One woman you know? Seems like you memorized her detailed and lengthy quote pretty well. Sure that "woman's" name isn't Chan? What - too afraid of looking like a pig to take credit for your own opinions? Too late. Maybe you should have signed the cartoon "Channa" to really throw us off.

And how RUDE of Hillary to think that just because she earned a spot at a prestigious college, excelled at law school, busted her butt in the field of law for 35 years and was the driving force behind a man who might never have been president without her, she thinks she's qualified to do the job herself? And why is she talking about war and the economy and health care when, as a woman, she should clearly be more concerned with her weight, hair and clothes? That's apparently what the rest of us are most concerned about.

Your lady friend has a point although she discounts Hilary's many years of experience in the field of Law, in the White House as a very active First Lady, and her obvious overall brilliance. In my opinion, though she's not perfect, she's the best person for the job

okaaay, I am late coming into this..REALLY LATE!Obama is now the president-elect and HRC has the nomination for secretary of state, with that said..I LOVED what your lady friend said..and if was indeed you, Chan..the same compliment applies..YOUR STYLE ROCKS!
