"He was the first Democrat to be re-elected since Franklin D. Roosevelt and, during his eight years in office, the nation enjoyed the greatest peace and prosperity in its history. Unemployment fell to the lowest rate in modern times, while inflation declined to a 30-year low and welfare rolls shrank. Crime fell to levels unmatched in half a century and home ownership increased to historic highs. Clinton submitted the first balanced federal budget in decades and banked a staggering surplus. He failed to reform healthcare but elevated environmental protection to unmatched levels."
— Tim Rutten, Los Angeles Times, 23 June 2004

Aside from the propaganda content, these guys have made a mess of confusion on IMDb and on YouTube in their irrational quest to defame America's then-U.S Senator from New York.
The film is entitled "Hillary! Uncensored" and also "Hillary Exposed", with further subtitle variations; there are also two pairs of writer/director on IMDb and two different lengths.

"Hillary: The Movie" [Citizens United 2008]
The Federal Election Commission sued to block the Citizens United political action non-profit organization from paying for ads or TV broadcasts of this film, based on provisions
of the B.C.R.A. (McCain-Feingold) campaign finance law; the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia agreed; Citizens United appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court,
and in January 2010 the decision was reversed. Not only that, but the decision by Justice John Roberts in "Citizens United v. F.E.C." cited 25 prior dissensions (a seriously-inept
legal no-no) and declared the United States a fascist country, i.e. 'money from corporations to political groups constitutes free speech'. This creates a Constitutional crisis,
because there is no appeal to such an action by the Supreme Court except multiple impeachments by Congress.

'Hillary The Movie' propaganda from Citizens United  The film is a review of various manufactured scandals that failed to bring down the Clintons; the District Court concluded that the film could not be interpreted as anything other than an appeal to vote against Senator Clinton, thus making it an electioneering communi-cation; the Supreme Court did not change that decision, they just said that corporations could not be banned from paying for such electioneering communications. Co-produced, co-written & directed by Alan Peterson; co-written by Lee Troxler & Michael Wright; with archive footage of Bill & Hillary Clinton; featuring Gary Aldrich, Dick Armey, Michael Barone, Tony Blankley, Bay Buchanan, Dan Burton, Joe Connor, Ann 'The Man' Coulter, Billy Dale, Cyrus Nowrasteh, Frank Gaffney, Jeff Gerth, Newt Gingrich, Larry Kudlow, Mark Levin, Michael Medved, John Mica, Dick Morris, Robert D.
