    .... but the question I cannot seem to get an answer to is, What has Hillary accomplished while in the Senate?  The press has bought the meme that Obama supporters are clueless as to his legislative accomplishments so they ask the question frequently, but the question does not seem to get asked of HRC supporters....

    For someone who keeps offering solutions as opposed to rhetoric, her legislative record seems to be MIA.

      Her "experience" is just like Barack Obama's "inexperience" -- a figment of her campaign's imagination.

      it's been hard to pass progressive legislation during a time of hard right conservatism...

      the question i keep asking is, if we give her blanket credit for being "involved" in the Bill Clinton administration, why don't we get to see papers that indicate what kind of involvement she had in white house decision-making?  that might have really swayed my vote but instead i'm supposed to just imagine that she absorbed all kinds of experience despite not holding an actual office, and to suggest she did not is sexism.  i'm sure she did gain some experience, but what exactly was going on behind closed doors? and why should i value the fact that she was so infamously chartered with the health care plan in 1993 when it was such an unmitigated disaster?

      or maybe i'm supposed to think of Bill and Hillary as a package deal... is that it?
