Alice Collins believes Hillary Clinton is a great candidate because of things she did in her 20s (Readers' Forum, Dec. 31). Has Alice read any of Hillary's writings or explored her beliefs? At the root of Hillary's beliefs is the big "S" word — socialism. She speaks "politically correct" today, embracing capitalist ideals, but at her core she is something very different. The "C" word that best describes Alice's candidate is "chameleon."
