Hillary and the Marines

How ironic if Hillary had become a Marine and had to hold an umbrella over President Obama during one of his Rose Garden addresses. Or bussed tables for a White House dinner.

Maureen Dowd,1994: Hillary Clinton Says She Once Tried to Be Marine  . . . "She told the group gathered for lunch in the Dirksen Office Building, according to The Associated Press, that she became interested in the military in 1975, the year she married Bill Clinton and the year she was teaching at the University of Arkansas law school in Fayetteville.
"She was 27 then, she said, and the Marine recruiter was about 21. She was interested in joining either the active forces or the reserves, she recalled, but was swiftly rebuffed by the recruiter, who took a dim view of her age and her thick glasses. 'Not Very Encouraging'
" 'You're too old, you can't see and you're a woman," Mrs. Clinton said she was told, adding that the recruiter dismissed her by suggesting she try the Army. "Maybe the dogs would take you," she recalled the recruiter saying.
" 'It was not a very encouraging conversation," she said. "I decided maybe I'll look for another way to serve my country.' " . . .
