Michael Ramirez is the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist for Investor's Business Daily and former Claremont Institute Lincoln Fellow. Below is yesterday's cartoon. Apart from the conception of the cartoon, I love how recognizable the gentleman to the right is despite the surgical mask. The caption reads: "Don't worry, I have experience. I'm not a surgeon, but I was married to one for eight years."
The cartoon appears to have been inspired by Patrick Healy's excellent New York Times article "The résumé factor: Those 8 years as First Lady." Healy writes of Ms. Hillary's vaunted White House experience:
"Mrs. Clinton did not hold a security clearance. She did not attend National
Security Council meetings. She was not given a copy of the president’s daily
intelligence briefing. She did not assert herself on the crises in Somalia,
Haiti and Rwanda."

"And during one of President Bill Clinton’s major tests on terrorism,
whether to bomb Afghanistan and Sudan in 1998, Mrs. Clinton was barely speaking to her husband, let alone advising him, as the Lewinsky scandal sizzled."

This is one of my biggest problems with Shrillary; marriage to a President does not a president make!
