( A view from across the pond)
Margaret Thatcher is a comparable figure to Hillary Clinton: way more talented than her competition and a soft target for the nasty Press. Who else in the UK political system had the nerve to take on the Miner´s Union; we used to only have electricity 3 days a week when I was younger (!). She was involved in another civil war with the IRA when one of her main colleagues was killed on the road out of the UK parliament and she herself too, almost, in the Brighton bombing.
Of course there are communities that suffered during her tenure but it may or may not have been her fault but as my mum says the world does not owe you a living.
