Interview with Elizabeth Warren from 04 - Hillary Clinton and Credit laws

The first part of the video is nice - We hear about how Hillary, as First Lady, was responsiable for killing a bill that would have disproportionately affected women. Warren says that it was entirely due to Mrs. Clinton that the bill failed in 2000 - And rightly so. This is a excellent reflection on who she - as a person is - one that WILL stand up for the people of this nation.

Now, right after she begins to tell us of a more recent - Well, at the time of the interview - event. How Mrs. Clinton, as a Senator... flipflopped on supporting women and voted IN FAVOR of this bill.

The interview ends with some words of wisdom and caution - "This is the scary part about Democracy today, we're talking about the impact of money."

This is perhaps the main reason that we have to very careful about who we vote for this election - With how influential large donors are in this election, it's extremely hard to tell just what our candidates believe in, and who - if elected - they will support.

Sadly though, we don't have candidates this election cycle that are willing to forgo the corrupting influence of big money - Or do we?

1. And then about a decade later she encouraged Clinton to run.

And yes and encouragement is not an endorsement, I am still aware of that.

We did this all last week I think?
