Where's the beef?

Not a good weekend for Hillary Clinton. First, she was forced to drop a story on her stump speech about a woman who died along with her child because the hospital kicked her out after she couldn't pay a $100 bill. Turns out it was bunk -- the woman who died had insurance after all.

Yesterday, she fired her chief strategist after it was learned he was lobbying on behalf of Colombia for a free trade deal with the US -- rather weird when Clinton has been speaking out against such trade pacts.

With less than two weeks to go, one has to wonder if Clinton is losing some spring in her step.

Not to mention that $15 milllion she and her husband earned over the last seven years from somebody -- for services yet not disclosed or possibly promises made (read: bribes in anticipation of future events). At least they're paying their fair share in taxes, but full disclosure should mean precisely that.
