Experience exshmerience

Although I am not American and so in no way have a say in who gets elected as the next president of the United States, I'm still free to comment on it. So let me just say that Hillary Clinton recently did a great disservice to all of us who still think, maybe naively so, that there must be some honest, hardworking politicians left. If you haven't seen the video yet, feel free to watch it below. Essentially, Clinton was caught in a blatant lie when recalling a story from her trip to Bosnia while she was First Lady. The story was so obviously fabricated it disgusts me. And the response by her aide could be considered hilarious if it were not so concerning coming from the campaign team of a woman who could become the next PUSA. The whole thing could be considered the greatest fabrication of her campaign, except then one would not be considering her incessant assertion that her years of experience in office make her a better choice than Obama. Just goes to show that no amount of experience can undo a propensity toward blatant dishonesty in the pursuit of power and glory.

"Memories should always match the videotape" I love that.
I never put much stock in the whole "experience" argument anyway.
