Politics makes strange bedfellows

Hillary Clinton 'unaware' of Bill's Dubai ties - Financial Times -

Hillary Clinton, a leading opponent of DP World's takeover of some US port operations, was this week forced to admit that she did not know her husband had advised Dubai leaders on how to handle the growing dispute.

But former President Bill Clinton's ties to Dubai and the United Arab Emirates should not have come as a surprise to his New York senator wife.

Mrs Clinton's own senatorial financial disclosure forms reveal that her husband earned $450,000 giving speeches in Dubai in 2002.

Officials from the UAE also donated between $500,000 and $1m to fund Mr Clinton's presidential library in Arkansas.
Who needs comedy when you've got real life?

Hillary should be more careful at keeping a check on Mr. Clinton. He's been going behind her back doing things he should not, remind me of the Monica Lewinsky days.

Hilary should first keep a check on herself. This woman scares me and the fact that she's the front line democratic candidate for 2008 is even scarier. Clearly she's using the ports deal for political brownies. Seen the latest version of "Manchurian Candidate"? Merryl Streep is said to have prepared for her character on certain traits of Hilary. I understand her ambition, but do you really think she'd be great president? She's already started off on the wrong note with this non issue alienating important arab allies...wonder whats next from her side to gain attention of the all important middle america/florida.
