    staff lawyer along with Hillary Clinton back in the 1970s. That didnt put him in the U.S. Senate, let alone in the presidential contest.  He went and became famous first over many years doing something else.

    Its a certainty that had Bill become a corporate lawyer instead of Governor of Arkansas, a great deal more work would have been required on Hillary's part over the past 30 years or so, to have even gotten into the Senate, compared with being a ceremonial "first lady".  Even so, she would then just be one of several ambitious, articulate Democratic women in Senate, not the entitled heir to a Presidential dynasty...

      Nixon admin during his time on the committee. Nice.
