Laura Flanders -- Extended


Albany, NY – Hillary Clinton is no newcomer to politics. We all know her as a Senator from New York and the former First Lady of both the nation and Arkansas. But Clinton started her political activism very young...in fact, she started out agitating for the Republican party, serving as president of Wellesley's College Republicans.

Air America radio host and political writer Laura Flanders looked at Hillary Clinton in a recent essay in a book on the presidential race called The Contenders. Flanders doesn't pretend to be a fan of Clinton's. In fact, Flanders thinks Clinton sticks too closely to the middle of the road - and that Clinton's policies don't necessarily reflect her base of women supporters.
