What Clinton Conflict of Interest?

The WSJ pointed out this morning that Henry Kissinger couldn't serve on the 911 Commission because he once accepted consulting business from foreign governments. But as Hillary goes before the Senate to be confirmed as Secretary of State, people will no doubt ignore the fact that our chief diplomat will have ten times the power and even greater conflicts of interest. As this article points out, she has already intervened six times politically on behalf of companies and others that have directly contributed to her husband's foundation.
