In the ultimate act of unification with the socialist left:
WASHINGTON (AP) – Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton liquidated the contents of their blind trust upon learning it contained investments of $5 million to $25 million that could pose conflicts of interest or prove to be embarrassing to her presidential campaign.
The blind trust and a bank account valued in the same range place the Clinton’s total wealth at between $10 million and $50 million.
Ok, so nothing bad so far..
Over time, the Clintons’ blind trust grew significantly and included stock holdings in oil and drug companies, military contractors and Wal-Mart.
ALERT! Sound the alarm, Hillary’s blind trust owned stock in evil capitalist enterprises like Wal-Mart and the evilest of all, oil companies.
I would venture to say that Hillary is sick of Code Pink invading her senate office for her vote on the Iraq war. If she wants to avoid other left wing groups attacking her for possibly profiting from Wal-Mart and oil stocks then she best dissolve that ownership rather quick.
But wait, it’s worse:
The blind trust held stock worth $100,000-$250,000 in NewsCorp, the parent company of Fox News, which many Democrats have denounced as biased against them.
It’s a good thing she’s getting this out now. The appearance of a mildly non-existent relationship with the parent company of Fox News could cost her the John Edwards supporters come November ’08.
