Editor's Viewpoint: Card for Clintons

We have never had international friends like the Clintons. President Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary, now US Secretary of State, are set for a fourth visit to the province just before Christmas.

The President gave the peace process here a major boost with his first visit in 1995 and the couple have been tireless advocates for the province since then.

Hillary is now tipped to be a presidential candidate in 2016 and few would bet against her becoming the first woman to hold the highest office in US. All the more reason to give the couple a great festive welcome when they arrive. We need all the friends we can get in these economic times.
