  •  OH, come on. (4+ / 0-)

    Hillary is much smarter and more ambitious than Laura Bush, and I don't find it hard to believe for one second that she used the opportunities that her station as First Lady gave her - such as they were - to do a hell of lot more than Laura Bush.  Let's not be total assholes here. It's just that as First lady, Hillary did NOT have the clearance or authority to be a major player.  In Ireland, it sounds almost like she did things approaching grassroots organizing (well, sort of anyway), which is great!  You can bet Laura Bush would have just shown up for the tea and cookies, and the smokes and whiskey afterwards, and not done a damned thing.

    The problem isn't that Hillary is the same as Laura Bush.  Come on!  It's that she's been drastically stretching the facts and, even worse, she doesn't stretch the facts just to promote herself, but rather tries to bludgeon Obama with her so-called "experience."
