And still not one positive comment about any one other than you, I see.

I have not done anything special for my country, for which I would deserve an award, nor have I been a politician or lawyer. Had I followed those paths, I would have been careful not to disgrace myself by crooked billing, or defying a subpoena, or covering up scandals.

The awards I have received have been more modest, but they matched my accomplishments. I became a National Merit Scholar because I was in the top .05% on the Scholastic Aptitude Tests that year, which also led to a scholarship. I got an award for outstanding scholarship in history because of my studies in that area. Each of my degrees has been earned.

Every day, I seek to do good, so that my light will shine before men, that they will see my good works and give glory to my heavenly Father.

Right now, that means giving shelter to people who were sleeping outside--we caught them just before the weather turned cold. It has sometimes meant dividing my lunch sandwich with someone else who had no food. It has meant working with alcoholics and drug addicts.

At the end of my life, with my sins forgiven, I look forward to hearing, "Well done, good and faithful servant."

As I said scholar, what have you ever done for your country?

People might pay more attention to your opinions if they weren't so entirely transparently one sided.

Well, she was crooked in her law firm billings, and was not punished for not turning over the subpoenaed documents that were being hidden in the White House (but which were discovered by another). If success as a crooked public figure is the standard for the award, or if St. Andrews doesn't care that she's crooked, then I can understand the award.

Personal love and loyalty to a husband is a good thing, but to support him in dodging consequences when he has repeatedly sexually assaulted women is despicable. Any head of an American company who had a sexual relationship with an intern could expect to be fired for it.

Jesus told a parable about a dishonest manager, who single-mindedly exploited his position to advance himself. You might expect that Jesus would have spoken against the evil of what he did. But, instead, He commended the man for his shrewdness, because he bent every effort toward his one goal (self-serving though it was). Christians ought to be so shrewd, using every means to serve God and His kingdom.

That's Hillary--smart, and a success at being crooked. If she had used her talents and abilities only for good, she could have accomplished a great deal.

There are ugly feelings about women and power in America. I think of Hillary as your inkblot test, and you are found wanting. If she had been male there is no doubt that she would have beaten Obama hands down. Americans, like you, tend not to like smart women.

Unlike John Kerry, John McCain, and Joe Lie­berman, she gave her full attention to foreign matters when she was part of the CODEL in Munich. She put aside her feelings about Obama to serve her country overseas in a non-partisan fashion. She clocked up over a million miles of international travel to represent American interests.

Hillary was involved with the Children’s Defense Fund and Yale's Child Study Center.She spoke about the Vietnam War protests in her commencement speech at Wellesley, served as the only female on the Nixon impeachment team. She taught law in Arkansas and was the first female partner in her law firm, and stayed with a wayward husband even although she knew it would harm her own stature. She was the first properly educated First Lady, having a post graduate degree and the first First Lady to hold elected office.


I wish you would look at your own life with such a jaundiced eye scholar as you have looked at hers. Perhaps, then, you would be less inclined to criticise others. What have you done, in your life, for the good of your country?

She got her conferred degree from St Andrew's because they recognized her historical importance as a trailblazer for women in law and life.


All true. But I would not want her as President, not because she is a woman but because she is Hillary who I believe would stab her mother in the back to get what she wants. I have always felt that the demise of several people associated with the Clintons who had damaging information was the work of Hillary. She is cold, calculating and has an underlying mean streak. If you thought you had an Iron Lady, I think Hillary would put her to shame. JMHO waveysmiley

Hmmmm. What DID she ever achieve as a politician, or as a diplomat?

While she was First Lady, she worked on national health care and tried to get Hillarycare passed, but failed.

She carpet-bagged her way into a Senate seat for New York, and didn't achieve anything much. She was among the Democrats who favored attacking Iraq. Like G. W. Bush, she thought the intelligence reports which held that Saddam had WMDs were correct. (Former President Clinton said Saddam had a nuclear weapons program.)

While she was Secretary of State, her office denied the additional security protection that was requested by the Benghazi embassy. The warnings given in advance of the attack were not heeded. When the attack came, assets that could have been sent to rescue the Americans were not sent. Afterwards, all the efforts of the Obama administration were bent on keeping things covered up as best as possible until after the election.

Well, she didn't get arrested for the illegal false billing for her law firm, or for hiding the records of which she denied the existence (but which were discovered in the Whilte House). The court had required her to turn them in, but she failed to comply. But, these things were not political or diplomatic.

And, she managed to lose the Democrat Presidential nomination to a rival who had never accomplished anything.

What HAS she accomplished? confused2

In view of the Whitewater scandal, I would think St. Andrews would consider her a disgrace.

There is an old polka called the "Beer Barrel Polka" that had a line in it " I don't want her, you can have her shes too fat for me" that applies to my thoughts when it comes to Hillary. The fat part may not be relevant but the rest is.waveysmiley
