Hillary will always be a winner here
THE sun may not have shone on US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on her visit to Dublin yesterday, but she still received a very warm welcome.
The Clintons are popular figures here and seen as loyal friends. Once First Lady to Bill's Mr President, we have seen her profile grow and flourish since she first entered the White House at her husband's side in 1992.
Often a power behind the throne during the Clinton years on Pennsylvania Avenue, she went on to fulfil her own political ambitions when elected to the Senate for New York state in 2000.
