To take nothing away from Ms. Clinton's accomplishments but to show how biased reporting can be, there would not be similar accolades given to Condeleza Rice and consider this. both women are intelligent with significant accomplishments. but add to Ms. Rice, being Black, had more hurdles to climb. So those who profess to be open minded, tolerant, diverse, etc. are not so much so in reality. Enlighten us all if the logic is off.

"Enlighten us all if the logic is off."------- Hillary Clinton was a Senator, Rice was not. Hillary Clinton was the first woman to have a realistic chance to win the presidency, Rice was not. Finally, Rice's career was damaged badly by the fiasco that was the Iraq war.

Aside from earning a lot of frequent flier miles, what did Hilary actually "accomplish"? This article fails to mention one single thing. Oh, and fainting and falling down doesn't count.

hawkeye - "Rice's career was damaged badly by the fiasco that was the Iraq war." ------- Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real.-- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003 (soon to be SOS). ------ You mean THAT Iraq war?

"Hillary Clinton was a Senator, Rice was not. Hillary Clinton was the first woman to have a realistic chance to win the presidency, Rice was not. Finally, Rice's career was damaged badly by the fiasco that was the Iraq war.">>>>>> Hilary stood by her man after he was fellated in the Oval Office by a subordinate employee who retained the DNA blue dress. Be careful when taking a bow Ms Clinton.

typical theocratic response: whine about how condy never got the same fluff piece written about her. can republicans do anything but show us their bitter tears? and yeah, good ol' condy, i'm sure she still thinks those wmd are in iraq... just keep looking, they'll turn up. or maybe that's why you never got your feel good condy piece: she helped to send thousands of americans to their death in another senseless republican 'war'

To compare Clinton and Rice is crazy. Condi was asleep at the wheel before 9/11 and was involved in the fubar that was the Iraq War.

Tough call, throw the bum and lose your ego trip / power trip as 1st, or is it 2nd lady, or have a moral compass abd do the right thing - oh wait, moral compass and liberals are mutually exclusive. Be careful when taking a bow Ms Clinton.

Interesting that she cites Ms. Clinton's airplane miles and meals rather than any accomplishments. Wonder why? That whole "reset" thing seems to have worked out, at least once they figured out how to translate it correctly.
