#2 Late last year, Mrs. Clinton's re-election campaign returned a $5,000 contribution from Wal-Mart, citing "serious differences with current company practices."
Damn, that sounds almost principled. Are you sure we're talking about the same "Mrs Clinton"?

#3 Back when she was on the Board of Directors she wasn't running for public office and wanted the money. Now, 5 grand isn't much and she doesn't need the political baggage. She wasn't really interested in Company Policy, just a paycheck.

#4 According to the defunct 'Spy' Magazine, Hillary's biggest push was against Walton's "Buy American" policies. She harped to other board members about how much more money could be made by purchasing products made by child slave laborers in 3rd and 4th world countries. Some were convinced that Hillary was just obsessively greedy.

#5 Great - now maybe she'll have time to talk about Bill's ties to Dubai.
