"I helped with the peace process in Northern Ireland," Clinton told reporters on her campaign plane on Saturday. "That's been validated in many different settings by many different people who were part of the process." Still in talks w/Sec. of State.

Why does Hillary have to continue to defend her experience against Obama's lack of it? *shakes head in disgust*

Clinton has cited repeatedly her involvement in the peace process as first lady during former President Bill Clinton's administration as an example of her foreign policy credentials. Obama advisers have said her role was minimal at best.

She said she continues to be engaged with leaders from Northern Ireland and questioned whether Obama could say the same.

"Just this week I was called to meet with the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, which I do on a regular basis, to get an update about where the process is now," she said.

"I understand the desire of my opponent to try to nitpick and bring people out to say things, but I think the record is very clear and one can, you know, look at many different sources. I don't know how many times Senator Obama has met with the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland."

The Obama campaign issued a statement that again accused the former first lady of inflating her role.

Well...Kathy, another good news post on Senator Clinton. This is his position of attack on her, currently, is her "experience", since everyone knows NOW that they both are on similar plans of NAFTA and the WAR, when they take office. She will have to repeat herself another zillion times just like with the other issues, just because she is Hillary. GO HILLARY!

Well there you go! Ireland is still inviting her back too!

What a bright faced amazing Lady she is! I would most certainly rather see her visiting Australia too for that matter!

Congratulations Ladies! :-)

Hillary has taken too much money from the rich corporate power elite who will want a pay off. their demands for Unfettered capitalism which Bush foolishly advanced has led to today's financial debacle. their inordinate greed built a fantasy on financial deceit. they enriched themselves until reality broke through. the case for the western world to adopt Egalitarian capitalism is strong and Obama is less indebted to Big-Money
