Her Royal Clintoness: Wallflower?
I choked up watching our troops in Baghdad swarm around President Bush as he made his way from one end of their mess tent to the other. Shaking his hand. Having their pictures taken with him. Chatting with him. Everyone with big ol' goll-lee grins. HOO-AHS reverberating throughout.
And then there was Her Royal Clintoness sittin' by her men at a mess table in Afghanistan as troops as walked by to say hello. Prim. Proper. Aloof as ever. The contrast was startling.
Then it was on to Baghdad for Her Royal Clintoness, after President Bush warmed up the crowd for her. However, it seems that there were few military types who wanted to meet with Her Royal Clintoness. "In fact so few U.S. military personnel volunteered to meet and sit with her, that military leaders in Baghdad had to designate enlisted personnel and junior officers to spend time with the New York senator."
