What is her experience?

Excerpt from Mayor Giuliani's interview that aired on FOXNEWS's Hannity & Colmes on Tuesday October 16, 2007.

Rudy Giuliani: "Honestly, in most respects, I don't know Hillary's experience. She's never run a city, she's never run a state. She's never run a business. She has never met a payroll. She has never been responsible for the safety and security of millions of people, much less even hundreds of people.

"So I'm trying to figure out where the experience is here. It would seem to me that in a time of difficult problems and war we don't want on the job training for an executive. The reality is that these areas in which - maybe there are some areas in which she has experience but the areas of having the responsibility of the safety and security of millions of people on your shoulders is not something Hillary has ever had any experience with."

Now I know that Hillary would say that she has 8 years of White House experience. That she's been involved in some of the day to day decision making that her husband, President Bill, had to make. That she has wide experience with the politics that occur in the Executive branch. All this may be true.

But I guess we will never see proof of this experience. You see, Hillary Clinton's documents covering her White House years are locked up at her husband's presidential library, in the custody of federal archivists who do not expect them to be released until after the 2008 presidential election.

Now wait a minute. Hillary's been out of the White House for eight years. It takes that long to archive her papers? The voting public should have the right to know what is in her papers since she is claiming those years as part of her so called experience. There have been some papers released. They are the ones related to her failed attempt for a socialist national health care system. Those must show her in a good light. But even then about 1,000 pages have been withheld. I wonder what they have to say?

With Hillary aggressively pursuing the presidency, the record of her activities in the White House is very important. The public deserves to know what her role in the policy making of the Clinton White House. Understand, she was not an elected official nor a presidential appointment. She was not a presidential staffer. She was just the Presidents wife and therefore in the White House by default. There should be no executive privilege granted to a former First Lady. The voters did not elect her. As much as the Moonbats would have liked it, we did not have a co-presidency. Did she have top security clearance? I hope not. Just because she's the presidents spouse does not give her the right to know all of our country's secrets. There might have been some pillow talk., well maybe not in the Clinton White House.

The papers I'm most interested in are the ones that show what her daily schedule was, what was on her calendar and who did she have appointments with. And her memos, what would they show?

If Hillary is so proud of her accomplishments, the she shouldn't hide her record behind any vague laws setting time limits for the release of those records. She had her health care documents released, why not the rest.

Come on Hill, come clean with America!
