Quote of the Day: Hillary "is not one of us"

Joan Di Cola, a Boston attorney, writing to the Wall Street Journal:

The reason Mrs. Clinton is behind among members of my demographic -- professional women making more than $75,000 a year -- is because she is simply not one of us. She hasn't accomplished anything on her own since getting admitted to Yale Law. Take a look behind her resume. Yes, she made partner two years after joining the Rose Law Firm -- because her husband was the governor and was able to direct a lot of business their way.

I have no idea what she did as first lady of Arkansas, besides maintaining her maiden name. What did she do as first lady of the U.S.? Nothing that I can see, except cover for her philandering husband, replace the White House travel office, help herself to White House furniture and prepare for her own future administration.

No, Mrs. Clinton is not one of us.

She isn't Dianne Feinstein, who spent years as mayor of San Francisco before becoming a senator, or Nancy Pelosi, who became Madam Speaker on the strength of her political abilities. All Hillary is, is Mrs. Clinton. She became a partner at the Rose Law Firm because of that, senator of New York because of that, and (heaven help us) she could become president because of that.
