Typical Hillary Clinton

Today on the radio I heard Mark Steyn talking about the passing of Sir Edmund Hillary. He explained how on May 29, 1953 he and Sherpa mountaineer, Tenzing Norgay, climbed to the summit of Mt. Everest.

Later in the discussion he told the infamous story of when Hillary Rodham Clinton first met Edmund Hillary in person. She told him that her parents named her after him.

Interesting, except for one thing: She was born on October 26, 1947, over 5 years before he became famous! Prior to that he was an obscure beekeeper in New Zealand, with absolutely no notoriety whatsoever.
