HIllary's First Lady Papers

So what was Sen. Hillary Clinton doing while her president hubby snuck around with infamous intern Monica Lewinksy? Well, apparently she was in the White House the day the notorious affair got going. The National Archives in Washington and former President Bill Clinton's library today released 11,000 papers of Clinton's schedules as first lady. Clinton has been questioned throughout the campaign about her experience as first lady, which she says helps qualify her for the White House. But The New York Times says the documents still leave questions unanswered and don't back up claims that she helped pass the Family and Medical Leave Act or worked on the Irish Peace Accord. And according to this story in The Guardian, Clinton was often far from the White House when key foreign policy decisions were made.
