hillary clintonFrom the Washington Post comes an article about Hillary Clinton’s role in the radicalism of the late 1960s and early 1970s, her links to left-wing student activists of the era, and charges that her criticism of Barack Obama’s ties to Weather Underground leader Bill Ayers are tainted by hypocrisy.

Update: More, from Tom Hayden:

Hillary is blind to her own roots in the Sixties. In one college speech she spoke of ecstatic transcendence; in another, she said, “our social indictment has broadened. Where once we exposed the quality of life in the world of the South and the ghettos, now we condemn the quality of work in factories and corporations. Where once we assaulted the exploitation of man, now we decry the destruction of nature as well. How much long can we let corporations run us?” She was in Chicago for three nights during the 1968 street confrontations. She chaired the 1970 Yale law school meeting where students voted to join a national student strike against an “unconscionable expansion of a war that should never have been waged.” She was involved in the New Haven defense of Bobby Seale during his murder trial in 1970, as the lead scheduler of student monitors.
