For nearly a quarter-century, Hillary Rodham Clinton has played an outsized role in the nation’s consciousness as an advocate and a political survivor. Her presidential campaign’s favorite way to describe her is as “a fighter.”Given that her tenure as Secretary of State was an unmitigated disaster, it's a valid question to ask what she's done to merit the Presidency. Well, have no fear, because Brent Budowsky is here to lay down the truth, baby!
But something surprising has emerged in public opinion about the former first lady, senator and secretary of state. Asked to name something tangible that Clinton has actually accomplished, many voters come up blank.
When Bloomberg News posed the question in May to a focus group of 10 Iowa Democrats, they praised Clinton for strength, experience and competence but could not recall a single thing she had done.
It is an equally big truth that Clinton is the most qualified person in the race for the presidency. She was the closest confidant and full partner during the most successful and fondly remembered presidency of modern times, an achievement no other candidate can match.There you have it, America: she was married to Bill Clinton. Were you? No, you weren't.
