Clinton Claims She Is “Very Proud” Of Record, But Crises Worsened “On Her Watch”

- February 4, 2016

Clinton: "I Am Very Proud Of My Record As Secretary Of State And What We Accomplished." CLINTON: "So we have to be leading and that means we've got to be smart about how we try to assert our power so that it is constructive, makes a difference, and does lead to greater peace and prosperity. But I am very proud of my record as secretary of state and what we accomplished". (Hillary Clinton, CNN Democrat Presidential Town Hall, Des Moines, IA, 1/25/16)

NBC's Andrea Mitchell On Clinton: All Of The Foreign Policy Crises "Got Worse On Her Watch…So Why Is She Qualified To Be Commander-In-Chief?" MITCHELL: "You support her, but all of these problems that we've just talked about got worse on her watch, as well as on your watch; the growth of ISIS, the Syrian civil war, the withdrawal from Iraq. So why is she qualified to be commander-in-chief?" (MSNBC's " Andrea Mitchell Reports," 1/7/16)

"One Of The Central Complications" Facing Clinton's Campaign Is "The Fact That She Must Own A Record At The State Department That Lacks Clear-Cut Diplomatic Triumphs." "Gathering questions over Libya also point to one of the central complications of Clinton's campaign for the Democratic nomination, due to formally launch on Saturday: the fact that she must own a record at the State Department that lacks clear-cut diplomatic triumphs. She'll also have to answer for misfires in the Obama administration's wider foreign policy as GOP candidates who have not faced the same tough choices can nitpick her record with the advantage of hindsight." (Stephen Collinson, "Hillary Clinton's Real Libya Problem," CNN, 6/8/15)

  • The Question Of What She Has Accomplished As Secretary Of State Is "A Question That Even, At Times, Has Tripped Up Clinton Herself." "After nearly forty years in public life, what exactly has she accomplished? It's a question that even, at times, has tripped up Clinton herself: During her 2014 book tour, when ABC's Diane Sawyer asked her about her 'marquee achievement,' Clinton changed the subject and she fumbled over a similar question during a women's forum in Manhattan last year." ("What Is Hillary's Greatest Accomplishment?" Politico Magazine , 9/17/15)
