Clinton rejects secrecy charge
By MIKE GLOVER, Associated Press Writer2 hours, 31 minutes ago
Hillary Rodham Clinton on Sunday rejected charges she's being secretive about her role as first lady in trying to overhaul the nation's health care system.
"There's been some misunderstanding and some misrepresentation about what the facts are," said Clinton, the front-runner for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.
Reporters asked Clinton about a series of charges that have been made about her since last Tuesday's Democratic debate. She shrugged off the attacks.
"I don't think they piled onto me the other night because I'm a woman, I think they piled on to me because I'm winning," said Clinton. "That's what happens."
The New York senator accepted the endorsement of former Vice President Walter "Fritz" Mondale, who won the party's presidential nomination in 1984.
"Fritz and I were just talking about what it's like to be leading and I'm very grateful to be earning the support of a lot of people around the country," said Clinton.
Mondale recalled the attacks he took from rivals in the primary season. "People know the only chance they have is to tear you down," he said.
Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been accused of withholding documents from the period when, as first lady, she worked on health care reform.
"The National Archive controls and administers presidential records, that's what they do for every president," she said.

So what explains the fact that the papers have not been released, if everyone is in favor of it?
Prayerfully, she and Fritz will be talking the day after the election about what it's like to have your ass handed to you. Fritz "leading"...bwhahahaha!!!!
“The National Archive controls and administers presidential records, that’s what they do for every president,”
That’s what Sandy said too...
Can’t withhold documents if they’re destroyed, eh, Sandy?
>>There’s been some misunderstanding and some misrepresentation about what the facts are..<<
Lady, I said the EXACT same thing every single day that you and that rapist were inside the White House.
Wow... That one must have stung the Clinton’s hard. Anytime either of them protest too much about something you know it struck a nerve. This one must have been a big nerve.
Oh, that one's too easy; he hasn't withheld a single document. Classical Clinton-speak.
Bill Clinton can make a phone call to have the documents released.
Bill! Did you eat the cookies?
I swear I didn't eat one cookie.
But there is only one left!
That is the one cookie I didn't eat...
It’s like saying “There is not a shred of evidence...”, when the phrase really means “We have shredded all the evidence..”.
Vintage Clintonspeak for "We've been caught red-handed."
You nailed it.
Like husband, like wife.
Someone needs to ask Hiliarly if she would be willing to take a lie detector test, since Sandy Burglar seems to have managed to evade the requirement that he take one as a condition of his plea deal.
