    Not what I said. I said basically if a sniper was attacking -- meaning actually firing -- when the plane landed, not that there was no sniper threat. Obviously the latter existed or this would be a case of a flat-out lie instead of what you are calling an embellishment.

    I also think it's a little far-fetched to assume she was trying to equate herself with those who have engaged in actual combat. I'm not sure ducking and running is what I'd call "engaging."

    I find it hard to fault her for embellishing since that's what politicians do ... draw attention to any of their accomplishments and downplay their failures.

    I think there's plenty of dirt on Hillary. It's just my opinion that this isn't some of it.

    I actually am not. One of my biggest problems with Hillary Clinton and a question I asked more often than not during the 90's was, "Who elected HER President?"

    I don't expect to see Bush's family doing it because I don't expect to see the President's family doing it. In all actuality, from a security standpoint, it's needless risk.

    Forget getting shot ... what if they had been kidnapped?

    If there was a sense of duty, it was to Hillary's political agenda.

    I will agree she's got bigger balls than Obama. She's got bigger balls than most men I know. "Balls" need to be tempered with some common sense.

    Socialists are always out of touch with reality. Lying is just one of the tools they employ to get what they want.

    She screwed up ONCE? Guess you didn't hear about her health care task force fiasco shortly after Bill became president. You should educate yourself about Hillary. There are plenty of good books out there about her, even by authors who would like to make her look good but have a really hard time doing that.

    I think she would eat her young if she thought it would help her get elected.

    Her and Pinnochio are kin somehow. She misspeaks so much that I'll be more shocked when she says something that resembles the truth.

    AA, a compound calumny on socialists. Firstly, lying isn't confined to socialists. Secondly, Clinton H. is no socialist.

    A grovelling correction and apology will be required :D

    Apparently it was such a bold faced lie, she admitted she "mis spoke"

    there was an 8 year old waiting for her to take pictures with her.
