What are the chances it is actually honest and critical of her rather than just being a fluff piece to get her campaign going?

Really????? Hillary has been around for awhile but has she really done enough to justify having a miniseries in her honor? Seems silly...and quite honestly a bit partisan on the part of NBC.

I wonder if the whacko commentators on the NBC cable channel will have tingles running up and down their legs like they did with Obama?

" Hillary has been around for awhile but has she really done enough to justify having a miniseries in her honor"...First Lady of Arkansas for many years, Walmart board member, First Lady of the US for 8 years, Senator for 8 years, first woman with a REAL chance to get the presidential nomination, and Secretary of State for 4 years. Nope, no accomplishments there...

erikj3, stood by her husband as he cheated on her multiple times as Governor and again as president and bungled the Benghazi issue as Secratary of State.

I hear KFC will be doing a "Hillary Bucket" promotion during the miniseries: two small breasts, two fat thighs , and a left wing!

It's NBC...Their Clinton saga will be a white wash of the Clintons. Directly opposite of the trashing NBC does of any Conservatives. NBC / MSNBC are in the tank for liberals. Their poor ratings reflect that.

Expecting NBC to run a story that hasn't been approved by Hillary and isn't a white wash of the Clinton family is sort of like expecting the Star Tribune to do a hard question question and answer with either Dayton, Klobuchar, or Franken - it won't happen.

Wow what a shock. Who would ever expect the main street media fawning over a democrat.

On NBC? Well, we know one thing, Benghazi will not be mentioned.
