Bill Clinton will be smil- ing. These will be white Democrats only. The societal implications will be felt around the Ivy League, America's self-pro- claimed ruling class. Fat women are more stupid than trim women. Hillary wasn't trim. She had no concept of right and wrong before she left Arkansas. That is proved by her involvement with Whitewater and the deaths of the patrolman and some others in Arkansas. When the pair got to Washington, D. C., the Vince Foster suicide, with no weapon found that put the bullet in him, is only another in the at least 45 murders on the fringes of the Clinton legacy. The Clintons reflect the French society just before the revolution there when they hauled Marie Antoinette out and chopped her head off.
