The filmmaker who was making a documentary about Hillary Clinton for CNN says he is backing out of the project because few people would cooperate with him. Charles Ferguson wrote in a column posted on Huffington Post Monday that he concluded he couldn't make much of a film. He said that of more than 100 people he approached, only two who had dealt with the former of secretary of state agreed to speak on camera.

For the sake of those who have been chanting mindlessly about Hillary's reset with Russia, here is a link to her last speaking visit to Louisville. April 9, 2010 she spoke at the McConnell Center as she patiently waited for the Senate to ratify the New START Treaty she crafted with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. She and Lavrov worked very well together on the treaty (i.e. the reset went just fine) and ratification stalled until December 22, of that year. When it finally came, it was a great Christmas present.
