Hillary Clinton is "a wee bit silly"


The London Telegraph reports that "Hillary Clinton had no direct role in bringing peace to Northern Ireland and is a "wee bit silly" for exaggerating the part she played, according to Lord Trimble of Lisnagarvey, the Nobel Peace Prize winner and former First Minister of the province.
"I don’t know there was much she did apart from accompanying Bill [Clinton] going around," he said. Her recent statements about being deeply involved were merely "the sort of thing people put in their canvassing leaflets" during elections. "She visited when things were happening, saw what was going on, she can certainly say it was part of her experience. I don’t want to rain on the thing for her but being a cheerleader for something is slightly different from being a principal player."
Mrs Clinton has made Northern Ireland key to her claims of having extensive foreign policy experience, which helped her defeat Barack Obama in Ohio and Texas on Tuesday after she presented herself as being ready to tackle foreign policy crises at 3am.
"I helped to bring peace to Northern Ireland," she told CNN on Wednesday. But negotiators from the parties that helped broker the Good Friday Agreement in 1998 told The Daily Telegraph that her role was peripheral and that she played no part in the gruelling political talks over the years..."
This sure does sound like when Al Gore claimed he invented the internet...

This does not surprise me one bit! Figures that she would be taking credit from something she didn't do.

I agree w/you, Shine. This my 1st election in which I will be voting for the lesser of 2 evils.

Thanks for the comment, JD. I was just a bit surprised the US press didn't call her on this claim... But then again... I shouldn't bee too surprised w/our media past actions.
