MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa - Hillary Rodham Clinton said Saturday that if she is elected president, she would make her husband a roaming ambassador to the world, using his skills to repair the nation's tattered image abroad. "I can't think of a better cheerleader for America than Bill Clinton, can you?" the Democratic senator from New York asked a crowd jammed into a junior high school gymnasium. "He has said he would do anything I asked him to do. I would put him to work." Clinton spoke at a town hall-style meeting Saturday where she took questions from about 200 people. When asked what role the former president would play in her administration, she left no doubt it would be an important one.

The more desperate Mrs. Bill Clinton gets in her campaign, the more Bill Clinton will be involved.
While other politicians will invoke God's name, Mrs. Bill Clinton will invoke Bill's.
Look at this situation closely, and it will be obvious. Poll ratings drop...more Bill Clinton.

We need to get the Bush/Clinton dynasty out of office for good. They have done nothing good for us. They will only continue to hurt us if it continues.
INNOCENTS ABROAD: HOW THE WORLD VIEWS CLINTOWS FOREIGN POLICY
By Lawrence T. DiRita Deputy Director of Foreign Policy and Defense Studies
This doubt stems from the confused and often contradictory nature of the Clinton Administra- tion's foreign policy. In Haiti, for example, the President first promised to end the Bush policy of returning refugees to Haiti, then reversed himself and adopted the identical policy. He reversed him- self again later by bowing to liberal pressure to tighten sanctions and even to threaten invasion. More recently, President Clinton decided to extend most-favored nation trade benefits to the Peo- ple's Republic of China (PRC), but only after having accused former President Bush of "coddling" the "dictators" in Beijing with the same policy.
The North American Free Trade Agreement NAFTA called for immediately eliminating duties on the majority of tariffs between products traded among the United States, Canada and Mexico, and gradually phasing out other tariffs, over a 15-year period.
The agreement is a treaty under international law, but not under the US Constitution. In the US, laws require majority approval in both houses, while treaties require two-thirds approval in the Senate only. Under US law DR-CAFTA is a congressional-executive agreement. The United States Senate approved the DR-CAFTA on June 30, 2005 by a vote of 54-45, and the House of Representatives approved the pact on July 27, 2005 by a vote of 217-215, with two representatives not voting. For procedural reasons, the Senate took a second vote on CAFTA on July 28 and the pact garnered an additional vote from Sen. Joe Lieberman — who had been absent on June 30 — in favor of the agreement.
The implementing legislation became Public Law 109-053 when it was signed by President George W. Bush on August 2, 2005.
The goal of the agreement is the creation of a free trade zone, similar to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) which currently encompasses the US, Canada, and Mexico. DR-CAFTA is also seen as a stepping stone towards the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), another (more ambitious) free trade agreement that would encompass all the South American and Caribbean nations except Cuba and Venezuela, as well as those of North and Central America. Canada is negotiating a similar treaty called the Canada Central American Free Trade Agreement.
President Clinton will leave the worst national security legacy of any president in the last 100 years, according to Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Pa., considered Capitol Hill's leading expert in Russian studies, and a senior member of the House National Security Committee.
"First, and most obviously, we must by word and deed renew internationalism for a new century," said Clinton, a likely Democratic Party presidential candidate for the 2008 election.
