Timeless and Time-Tested Warren Buffett Watch Predictions

December 28, 2008

I am definitely a Warren Buffet fan. I have told all of my friends and family as well as business colleagues that I see only success for our company.

This particular article, written by Cecile Richard’s, lauds Obama’s selection of Hillary Clinton for Secretary of State and the fact that she will champion women’s health worldwide. As I’m sure most of you are aware, this stems back from her stay in the White House (back in the early 90’s), during which time she was selected by her husband to head and champion a universal health care program for the US. The article continues:
