Want Real Answers? Real Fast?

This piece isn’t about the political fallout over Hillary Clintons admitted misstatement about running from sniper fire during her visit to Tuzla, Bosnia, in 1996 as first lady. "I remember landing under sniper fire," she said. “There was no greeting ceremony and we were basically told to run to our cars. That is what happened.”

This article is not about the fact that she repeated this misstatement for nearly three months, well after the media had exposed it. Moreover, I won't comment on statements made by Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor, who said Clinton's Bosnia sniper fire tale "joins a growing list of instances in which Senator Clinton has exaggerated her role in foreign and domestic policymaking.” Because that’s not what this article is about.

This article is about AnswerTips from that I discovered while reading Hillary’s St. Patrick’s Day Massacre.

AnswerTips is a very useful tool that is integrated into web pages and allows users to look up any word or phrase for the best explanation or definition on the Web. When a user double-clicks any word on a participating site, a small pop-up window appears with an AnswerTip, which is simply an explanation of the word or phrase.

For bloggers, this is great because its keeps your visitors from wandering off your page onto outbound links when looking for information. To learn how to use AnswerTips and to enable it for your blog check out their Blogger Portal.
