[This is being recommented as I was previously censored by either bibliocommons or some anti-free speech, anti-democracy type who is functioning at the lizard-brained level: anyone who is still in denial - - or does NOT comprehend - - that the Clintons were a major political force in the dismantling of the New Deal is in serious deep trouble!]
// . . . activist to First Lady of Arkansas . . . \\
Hmmm. . . . while on the board of directors of Wal-Mart?
Could have fooled me . . . .Yo, yo, Mrs. Clinton, great job on keeping Arkansas a // right to work \\ state!?!?
And WHY should American citizens be thankful to Monica Lewinski? Because on the night before that scandal broke, President Clinton had just polished off a speech to be delivered the next day on moving forward on the privatization of Social Security.
Thanks to the Monica scandal, that speech was shelved . . . .
[The Heritage Foundation criticized President Reagan during his term for not moving forward with the privatization of the American government, which positively exploded under Clinton, thus gaining favor with Wall Streeters and the Heritage Foundation!]
In 2004, a bipartisan India Caucus was formed in the US Senate,which was headed by Hillary Clinton, Democratic senator of New York, and John Cornyn, Republican senator of Texas. This was the first time a Senate caucus was formed dedicated to a single country.
[HRC would bring the Indian offshoring company, the Tata Consultancy, to Buffalo, NY to offshore more American jobs. Great job, Sen. Clinton!]
That's because Clinton is someone who tends to bend with the wind on this issue. In 2007, in a speech to top Silicon Valley executives, she was very clearly on the side of boosting H1B numbers. " I am reaffirming my commitment to the H1B visa and increasing the current cap. Foreign skilled workers contribute greatly to what we have to do in being innovators," she said to loud applause.
In 2003, she was clearly not hesitant to inaugurate the offices of India's Tata Consultancy Services in Buffalo, one of the major beneficiaries of H1Bs and IT outsourcing contracts from the US. Clinton was the key architect of the whole plan to bring business, and TCS, to the State of New York, at a time when the whole issue of outsourcing and H1Bs was gathering steam.

This book leads a young reader to believe that Hillary was the great female 'pioneer' that single-handedly broke all the old sexist economic and social barriers to women's success. It's full of nothing but praise for all Hillary's astonishingly great accomplishments, has no mention whatsoever about anything negative about her, and concludes by predicting that whatever she does in the future is bound to be further Earth-shaking success. I wouldn't let any young reader near this book without a serious talk beforehand about Hero Worship on the part of its author, propaganda techniques, or about how a biography -- like any other historical, supposedly factual work -- can lead readers astray by 'cherry-picking' certain things and ignoring lots of others.
