I'm sure you've all heard that Hillary Clinton's daily schedule as First Lady was released today.  The MSM has been talking about it all day.  A few things have come out that has been mostly characterized as "minor":  a little NAFTA-gate, some interesting redactions, and proof her foreign policy "experience" isn't... well... much at all.

But, there is something they aren't telling you.

The First Lady schedule is just a distraction.  The real story isn't what has been released, it is what hasn't.  Specifically, her phone logs and the healthcare task force records.  The Clinton archives is asking that the judge dismiss the lawsuit on these documents, or delay their release for at least a year.  A year?

That seems like awfully convenient timing, doesn't it?  By then the new president, whoever he (Barack Obama) may be, will already have been sworn in.  In my opinion, it is clear they are trying to keep those documents from damaging her candidacy.  And, whatever it is must be pretty big if they are trying to delay it long enough that she would have already been sworn in by the time they are released.

I searched Google News for "clinton papers" and looked at about 10 articles on the first page and did not see mention of this once.  In fact, so far the only place I have found it mentioned is here:

The archives has asked a judge to dismiss the lawsuit over task force records or delay the documents' release for at least a year. The archives has asked a federal judge to delay the release of her telephone logs for one to two years.

I'm really disappointed that the media seems to be ignoring this.  If the media is so damned biased against Clinton, shouldn't they be talking about this non-stop?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
