Why is hillary clinton the most reviled woman in American history?
Hillary jeered by NYC heroes
Senator Hillary Clinton's inner circle is furious at MIRAMAX king Harvey Weinstein after the former first lady suffered through a public relations nightmare during Saturday's AMERICA: A TRIBUTE TO HEROES concert in New York City.
Hillary Clinton was jeered and booed by thousands gathered at Madison Square Garden as she took to the stage -- unannounced -- to introduce a movie clip. VH1 cameras captured firemen and police heroes wildly booing Clinton, who attempted to raise her voice above the shouting crowd.
"Get off the stage! We don't want you here!" yelled one New York City police officer just feet from the senator. Anti-Clinton slurs spread and intensified throughout the Garden, with many standing near the stage lobbing profanities.
Event-planner and close Clinton friend Harvey Weinstein was visibly shaken as he heard the crowd erupt with boos and jeers, according to an eyewitness. The junior senator from New York ending up giving the shortest presentation of the evening, clocking in at under 20 seconds.
"How could we not know this would be the wrong forum for Hillary?!" shouted one confidante. "These are cops and firemen who listen to right-wing talkradio. They still think she killed Vince Foster, for Christ sake!"
Other New York politicians received warmer welcomes during the 5-hour concert which featured Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Elton John and others.
Former President Bill Clinton, who took the stage minutes after his wife, worked over scattered boos with talk of the rescuers' heroism. Following the Clintons, James Taylor soothed the heroes with an acoustic FIRE AND RAIN.
The concert raised millions of dollars for September 11 relief efforts.

ROAST OF THE TOWN:
And this excerpt from the NY Daily News:
The mayor, in a green Manhattan College slicker and baseball hat, soaked up the "Rudy, Rudy" cheers, as he darted from curb to curb, working the crowd. "I love him," said Diane Vitiello of Richmond Hill, Queens, after hugging Giuliani.
Clinton's smile never faded as she walked and waved, ignoring such signs as "Something's Rodham in the White House."
"We've had our fill of Hill and Bill," read one carried by former Giuliani Housing Authority Commissioner Myrtle Whitemore, who chanted, "Go home!"-- Penny
NEW YORK (AP) -- Hillary Rodham Clinton marched in her first St. Patrick's Day parade today but was greeted by many along the parade route with a resounding chorus of boos and shouts of ''go back to Arkansas.''
Accompanied by fellow Democrats City Council President Peter Vallone, former Mayor Ed Koch, and Reps. Carolyn Maloney and Joseph Crowley, Clinton ignored her vocal critics and kept smiling and waving.
The largest chorus came at St. Patrick's Cathedral, where parade watchers stood two and three deep on the sidewalk. ''Find your own state,'' some shouted. ''Go back to Arkansas,'' others screamed out. Many preferred to hurl generic boos at the first lady.
And while there were Clinton supporters cheering, they were drowned out by the more vocal opposing crowd.
''Rudy, Rudy,'' one group of young men shouted as she passed by. ''The mayor has done so much for the city,'' said John Durkin, of Sayville, on Long Island. ''He is absolutely awesome.''
Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, Clinton's Republican rival for the Senate, and Gov. George Pataki led the parade but not before taking a shot at what he calls Clinton's carpetbagger status, saying he hoped she doesn't get lost.
''I think I've got some good guides to find my way,'' responded Clinton, marching further back in the parade.
The first lady began the day -- a dreary overcast day that included a freezing rain and later light snow -- at a St. Patrick's Cathedral Mass attended by about 5,000 worshippers.
She sat several rows behind Giuliani inside the church but they did not exchange greetings. After the Mass she attended a breakfast hosted by Vallone at the Princeton Club where she told the group she brought greetings from the president, who was meeting with parties involved in the Northern Ireland peace process.
She made a reference to her new status, saying, ''It is just a great pleasure to be here as a New Yorker for St. Patrick's Day.''
Outside, Clinton supporters, wearing stick-on shamrocks that simply said, ''Hillary,'' got ready to line the 45-block parade route.
She was one of the few prominent Democrats to march. Many Democrats boycott the parade because the Irish Lesbian and Gay Organization is not permitted to march.
The parade is organized by the Ancient Order of Hibernians, a Catholic fraternal group that excludes ILGO on the grounds that homosexuality is not accepted by the Catholic church.
Sixty-six members of the Irish gay group held a protest before the start of the parade and were arrested on disorderly conduct charges when they tried to march down Fifth Avenue.
The first lady has said repeatedly that she wants to highlight her support for the Irish peace process by taking part in the parade, but she has also said she had hoped the parade would be ''inclusive'' of the gay group.
Her reasoning did little to pacify angry ILGO members.
''Hillary came to New York and did not understand Irish politics. She should not be marching in the main parade,'' said ILGO member Maxine Wolfe, 58, of Brooklyn. ''She's hypocritical for saying she's marching to support the peace process.''
''I understand their concerns about it not being inclusive,'' Clinton said when asked to respond to her Irish gay critics. ''But this is a day also to honor the values and contributions of Irish Americans.... when you're in public life you have to balance competing values.''
City Comptroller Alan Hevesi, city Public Advocate Mark Green, former Mayor David Dinkins and U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer are among the Democrats conspicuously absent amid the bagpipes and marching bands.
But Green attended the morning Mass with Clinton, who accented her outfit with a green scarf. ''I often come to Mass but I don't march because I'm hoping some day it will be an inclusive parade,'' Green said before the service began.
Hevesi, Green and a bevy of other elected Democratic officials did join the first lady on Feb. 27 for an early St. Patrick's Day parade in Queens that permitted gay organizations to march.
In December, Clinton said she would march after she was asked about the parade during a press conference with a group of Irish-American officials. She apparently did not know about the ILGO conflict when she made her initial commitment.
