In a book to be published on April 29 by Citadel Press, "Grandmothers Against the War: Getting off Our Fannies and Standing up for Peace," author Joan Wile devotes an entire chapter to the grannies' intense disapproval of Hillary Clinton.

"We grannies have always been puzzled by Hillary Clinton's popularity," Wile writes in her book. "As we all know, Hillary ignored the good advice we and others offered and voted for the resolution. She has shuttled back and forth from pro-war to antiwar and back again -- after she voted to give Bush authority to invade Iraq, she called for more troops to be sent there. Once she was well into her campaign, however, when there was much criticism of her wobbly stance, she started making noises about how she would end the war the day she assumed the presidency. But, then, another flip-flop -- she refused to say whether she would end the war by 2013!"

In the chapter about Clinton, "Meeting Bill Clinton While Bird Dogging Hillary," Wile describes how she and one of her granny compatriots contrived to meet with Bill Clinton in late 2005 for a face-to-face encounter in which they pleaded with him to persuade his wife to change her pro-war stance. Subsequent events, of course, revealed that she was oblivious to the pleas of her constituents. Says Wile in the chapter, "As she played politics with Bush's war, we began to get angry. We surmised early on that she seemed to have no core ethics to guide her, but based her decisions exclusively on her estimation of what would bring her the most votes when she ran for president. The last straw for us was when at the end of 2005 she cosponsored a bill to ban flag-burning, seemingly out of nowhere. It struck us as a pointless action, particularly in view of the fact there has been virtually no flag-burning to speak of for many years. It was instead a strategic move to position herself right smack in the political middle for a presidential run, and of absolutely no value in solving the really critical issues facing us."

Wile is quoting these passages about Hillary Clinton prior to the book's publication because of constant media analyses concluding that older women are for the former First Lady. "Certainly not us old dames," she assures. "Hillary Hawk definitely does not have our endorsement."

NOTE: The book, "GRANDMOTHERS AGAINST THE WAR; GETTING OFF OUR FANNIES AND STANDING UP FOR PEACE," may be pre-ordered from bn.com, target.com, and amazon.com.
