This is Bill Clinton’s actual quote:
“But if we did that, you know as well as I do, China and India and Indonesia
and Vietnam and Mexico and Brazil and the Ukraine, and all the other countries
will never agree to stay poor to save the planet for our grandchildren. The
only way we can do this is if we get back in the world’s fight against global
warming and prove it is good economics that we will create more jobs to build
a sustainable economy that saves the planet for our children and grandchildren.
It is the only way it will work.”

NAFTA.’ She was against NAFTA. And if she would somehow come out and
tell the real story of what she fought for in the White House and failed in
a big argument with her husband she would end up moving much closer to those
Let’s also not forget that it was just last April that Obama backed a non union
candidate over another very pro union opponent: Obama’s Forgotten Wal-Mart Endorsement. Let them all eat cake!
