ABSTRACT
Focuses on questions that remain about Hillary Rodham Clinton's 16-year-old commodities transaction which netted $100,000 on a $1,000 investment. Were the investments a form of cronyism not available to everyone; Was Mrs. Clinton aware that her main broker, Robert `Red' Bone of Refco Inc., had been penalized for his business practices; Were the Clintons political hypocrites.
