Hillary hides Wal-Mart ties

With retail giant Wal-Mart under fire to improve its labor and health care policies, one Democrat with deep ties to the company — Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton — has started feeling her share of the political heat. Clinton served on Wal-Mart's board of directors for six years when her husband was governor of Arkansas. And the Rose Law Firm, where she was a partner, handled many of the Arkansas-based company's legal affairs. Clinton had kind words for Wal-Mart as recently as 2004, when she told an audience at the convention of the National Retail Federation that her time on the board "was a great experience in every respect." But in recent months, as the company has become a target for Democratic activists, she has largely steered clear of any mention of Wal-Mart. And late last year, Clinton's re-election campaign returned a $5,000 contribution from Wal-Mart, citing "serious differences with current company practices."

Oh wait! Another limousine liberal hypocrite, just like Hanoi Kerry!

Well, let's see.... she was on the board in the 80s, when Sam Walton was still in charge, and before they began to adopt the policies that have gotten them in such hot water lately. She acknowledges that her time with the board was good. She returns a recent contribution due to differences with "current company practices."

Bottom line: They had policies she approved of and worked to improve at the time, 20 years ago. Now, they have policies she doesn't approve of, and isn't interested in their support. Where is this hypocrisy?
