I wonder what New Yorkers thought of their illustrious new senator after 9/11. Seemed like she wasn't very anxious to come "home" to check things out. Rudy came out looking great and she looked like she was put out to be called away from important things in Washington.
Can't believe the Clintons are tucking it to us on the "rent" for their tenants. But, if true it would not surprise me at all.
I heard on the radio yesterday that a majority of Democrats polled(of maybe 1600 ?) want Hillary to run against George W. They never learn.

Yes, as a former President, Clinton gets SS protection for life. As he should.....

Whatever, I really don't get this guys point. About the 10 grand, it doesn't surprise me but I do wonder where he gets his statistics from. I'd also like to see if they cost us more than Bush Sr, Reagan, Carter, etc.

As much as I dislike our former president and his wife, there are plenty of actual charges to raise and to make allegations that are not true dilutes the impact of those true issues. According to scopes this email combines two separate urban myths.

To take the second first, the Secret Service pays according to a government formula and in the case of the clintons that is $1,100 per month.

As to the first, this is the comment by the Gold Star Mothers:

"The American Gold Star Mothers, Inc., deeply regret the misunderstanding about Senator Hillary Clinton. The two mothers who visited Washington did not have an appointment with the Senator and she was not in her office on that day.
We would appreciate it if the e-mails and negative comments about Senator Clinton would cease.

Georgianna Carter-Krell
National President "

A VERY false rumor:

Let's try to see the world as it is, not as we wish it to be.

The truth is quite sufficiently disgusting without propagating fables.

The eight year long nightmare is over, time to wake up and go on with the new day, not replay "Nightmare on Pennsylvania Street" over and over again.

He is the last Prez to get it for life. From now on it will be for 10 years. They also have refused the money that the Secret Service would pay.
