As I Said, Do As I Say…

There’s this:

Hillary Clinton today called for George Bush to protest China’s human rights record by boycotting the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics.,.

“I encourage the Chinese to take advantage of this moment as an opportunity to live up to universal human aspirations of respect for human rights and unity, ideals that the Olympic games have come to represent.”

and this:

U.S. Democratic senators and presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are scheduled to join Arizona senator and Republican presidential hopeful John McCain as vice-chairmen of the National Committee for Israel 60th, according to a statement released by the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations on Friday.

Of course, it’s only an ‘aspiration’.


the Clintons have both tolerated and promoted the Uribe government. Last year the Uribe government presented Bill Clinton with an award for his efforts on behalf of Colombia. Uribe, in turn, was honoured as a “featured attendee” at the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative. Less than two months ago, Hillary Clinton voiced her support for a Colombian military excursion into Ecuador to root out FARC fighters – an attack of ambiguous legality at best.
