Hillary Clinton appears to have embraced her inner-fabulist. From Newsday:
VINTON, Iowa – Ever since Barack Obama suggested Hillary Clinton’s eight years as first lady were a glorified tea party a few days back, she’s looked for an opening to strike back.
On Saturday night in Dubuque she pounced, arguing she risked her life on White House missions in the 1990s, including a hair-raising flight into Bosnia that ended in a “corkscrew” landing and a sprint off the tarmac to dodge snipers.
“I don’t remember anyone offering me tea,” she quipped.
The dictum around the Oval Office in the ’90s, she added, was: “If a place was too dangerous, too poor or too small, send the first lady.”
The story goes on to note that, according to her autobiography, she was joined on the “dangerous” mission by unfunny comic Sinbad, singer Sheryl Crow, first daughter Chelsea, and a full complement of Secret Service.
A bumpy plane ride with Sinbad does not a dangerous mission make… To ones dignity perhaps, but not to their health…
