HILLARY IS NOT BILL....

The thing that bugs me about this election cycle is how people think that just because they shared matrimonial vows that former President Clinton and Senator Clinton are politically one in the same.

I think that they are very different politically and as people. Bill strikes me as a person who very easily vibes with people...Hillary...well, not so much.

Does Hillary have the right to claim her tenure as First Lady as "Executive Experience"?

I would say no. She wasn't elected to that post...she just happened to marry him. Sure, she's intelligent and probably was a good sounding board but she had no accountability if something she suggested failed. Elected candidates do...

from what I recall, she didn't do too well in that position--the stonewalling, the Vince Foster thing, the contempt for process and disclosure--it was a nightmare

"the contempt for process and disclosure--it was a nightmare" i think therein lies the differentiator between the candidates. one, is a insider, conducting bask-alley smoky-room deals, while the other believes in transparency and accountibility. democracy only works when the constituency is informed and involved.

She considers herself to be part of the Bill Clinton Administration. I would like to know what other jobs allow for the spouse of the job holder to claim experience simply because they were married? Can surgeons' wives, professional athletes', teachers, musicians, etc. make the same claim? I am outraged that Hillary can do this and yet NO ONE seems to call her on it. That is just sheer insanity at it's best. As far as I'm concerned, she's set the record backwards for what equal rights for women.

vrs, not only is she taking credit for it...she is doing it selectively. I hope that the voters of Ohio don't get snowed by her claims this Tuesday.
