Hillary Clinton and Benazir Bhutto

In Iowa yesterday, when asked about Benazir Bhutto's assassination, Hillary Clinton apparantly "turned away without answering."
I suspect that she needs some time for her speechwriters to prepare a statement that will best exploit Bhutto's murder and the chaos that followed. Eventually, Hillary will claim to have been a close personal friend of Bhutto and to have been inspired by Bhutto. Hillary will feed off of Bhutto's corpse like a worm.

But it takes time to create a story like that. Hillary's minions will have to make sure that the story is plausible. They cannot let her say anything that can be disproven easily. They will have to create a plausible timeline of how and when the two women supposedly met and maintained a friendship without anyone else finding out about it (except for the reliably dishonest Clinton sycophants who will verify whatever Hillary says). Hillary's handlers have the relatively easy task of creating a story that the New York Times will swallow (or at least defend when the story is questioned by the new media). At the very least, I imagine that Hillary's speechwriters are at this moment coordinating with the New York Times to make sure that everyone is on the same page before Hillary makes her Bhutto comments.

It might be wise to find a discarded copy of Hillary Clinton's biography, "Living History" and search it for any reference to Bhutto. In that book, Hillary said very little about anything, except for her boasts about meeting world leaders like Violetta Chamorro. If she didn't mention Bhutto, we can deflate her exploitation relatively quickly. I did not read Hillary's book, but a quick review of the index might reveal either (1) what Hillary's speechwriters will say about Bhutto or (2) a strategy for exposing Hillary's lies about Bhutto.
