Clinton created 11,000,000 in his first four years; GWB is the first president since Hoover on whose watch the number of jobs fell. And, btw, there are reports that those "exciting" job numbers for last month were mainly made up of formerly striking CA supermarket workers returning to work, and folks accepting part-time jobs because they'd given up on finding full-time jobs and had run out of unemployment benifits, thanks to the Republicans' failure to extend the supplemental benefits last December. For details, see Surge in (part-time) job creation. Yes, it's a left-wing site -- but the BLS has become an arm of the Bush re-election campaign, since it ignores these facts and puts a positive spin on dismal news, which (Republican) Wall Street buys into. "If you can't convince 'em with facts, you can always dazzle 'em with BS!"
As for Heinz, Kerry's wife has no managerial role in the company.

Kerry says he's going to somehow create 10,000,000 jobs if elected. He has steadfastly critized US companies that ship jobs overseas as Benedict Arnold businesses and continues to accuse Bush of wanting to send more jobs overseas. In the meantime, I wonder how many jobs the companies in the Heinz Empire are shipping overseas?
