Hillary and Wal-Mart


The NY Times writes about a subject Hillary Clinton doesn't talk about -- her six years as a Wal-Mart director, beginning as a diversity pick in 1986 when Wal-Mart had no women on the board. The article credits her for advancing the interests of women and environmental concerns. She stayed silent on Wal-Mart's anti-union stance. I'm not sure the record is anything to be ashamed of. Wal-Mart, with the majority of Americans, enjoys its deserved reputation for cost-cutting and inventory. It also deserves the scrutiny it gets for labor practices, impact on American manufacturers, etc. I think this is an issue easily triangulated, though some Democrats seem inclined to see the big W in one evil dimension.
