    Hillary Clinton and her former employer, the Rose Law Firm of Little Rock. See my comment responding to rasbobo, above.

      Why are you bringing up Hillary and Vince Foster on this thread about the estate tax? It seems off topic. Do you think she advised Sam Walton to fund the repeal of the estate tax decades ago? Or what?

      What is your point?

        This movement to repeal the estate tax has been going on for decades, BTW.

        It's just a detail that might become important later on. And then again, maybe not.

          That's such a Republican tactic.

          •  No, not that! (0+ / 0-)

            I just wonder if she was at all involved in the Walton family's efforts to repeal the inheritance tax. But I know that we'll probably never know for sure or what, if anything, she did to advance the family's objective because it's privileged, confidential information.

            Just a detail to file away in long-term memory to see what, if anything, comes of it.

              That's totally guilt by association.  Also an attempt to tar with the same brush.

              And such a republican tactic.

              Once, I might not think so.  But repetition of said innuendo?  Just something to file away in long-term memory and see what, if anything, comes of it.

              The chips are down. Find your outrage.

              •  Guilt by association with whom? (0+ / 0-)

                Your accusation makes no sense. Lawyers frequently do things on behalf of their clients with which they do not, themselves, agree.

                But if such a lawyer later becomes a politician, and then when running for some even higher office--say, president, maybe--takes a public stand which is directly opposite that which they took and performed on behalf of their client, it might have the taint of hypocrisy. And it might have the appearance of impropriety.

                You also wrote:

                What does this mean? Same brush as what other use?

                BTW, I'm probably more of a progressive Democrat than you are. I'm not a troll, and certainly not a Republican. Like most who read and comment here, I have preferences for our party's 2008 Pres'l nominee. But Mrs. Clinton is not among them.
