    Hillary wasn't a politician at the time. She was supposed to be a stateswoman - you know - representing the best interests of the United States - not a politician. That's what the Secretary of State is supposed to do. Perhaps you can show how Bill Clinton's speaking engagements were in the best interests of the United States, because it appears to all the world they were certainly in the best interests of the Clintons. Both Bill and Hillary.

    Thats a politician.

    - you know - representing the best interests of the United States - not a politician.
    No matter how you describe it, its still a politician.

    Why does it matter? Was Bill Clinton the Secretary of State or something?

    No. In reality, whatever politicking the Secretary of State did before he or she held the Sec job doesn't mean the duties of the Secretary of State are political. They are in fact administrative, and charged with implementing the foreign policy of the administration. That is distinctly not the job of a politician.

    See above. To the left, everything is political. I certainly agree that with both of the Clintons, Hillary as secretary was certainly purely political and possibly for personal financial gain.

    See above.

    You really wanna go with the elementary argument of "well its supposed to be that way"? Get past the elementary description of positions.

    I actually think Mitt Romney would have been one of the all-time great Presidents. There is nothing about the man that even gives the hint that he isnt Presidential material. Hell, he even looks the part.

    Ahhh, yes. I do. Do you really wanna go with the "yeah, it's corrupt, but that's a given" thing?

    I can't figure out what the corrupt part is. He's a private citizen speaking at a private event. Where's the conflict of interest?

    Mornin HB they aren't up on whats ethical despite the AP talking about an ethics problem and the conflict of interest.

    Its why you will see them talk about how they don't see anything wrong with what was being done. They tend to skip over what the AP stated and their emphasis.
