according to the Wall Street journal today, Hillary Clinton was formerly a board member of Wal-Mart.
that was the first I’ve heard of this. i did some digging and, sure enough, Mrs. Clinton serves on the Wal-Mart board of directors from 1986 to 1992 (not long before she became first lady).
During those six years, Wal-Mart was one of the fastest growing companies in the world. This experience must have been one that us useful to Senator Clinton.
