- Editorial: Hillary Clinton's Claims on Experience (Time.com)
"THE BOTTOM LINE [on Children's Health Care]: The record suggests Clinton did indeed lobby for children's health coverage but that many others were responsible as well. And it also shows that her husband nearly killed the idea before it ever got off the ground."
"THE BOTTOM LINE [on the Northern Ireland Peace Process]: Clinton played a role in hearing the concerns of Irish women left out of the peace process, and in encouraging them to put pressure on their countrymen to pursue negotiations. But that does not mean she rolled up her sleeves and conducted or led the talks that resulted in the 1998 Good Friday Agreement."
"THE BOTTOM LINE [on Macedonia Refugees]: In the case of Macedonia, Clinton engaged in personal diplomacy that brought about change. But securing the return of American business partners is not the same as the opening of borders to thousands of refugees. That accomplishment was a result of broader U.S. and European efforts during the war." 03-08
