    Apart from winning a Senate election because she was Bill Clinton's wife and being appointed Secretary of State because she was Bill Clinton's wife and winning the Democrat nomination because she remains Bill Clinton's wife...

    She...



    I can't think of any.

        Co-sponsoring and/or voting on a bill is an accomplishment?

        I notice your list says she was the author of one (1) bill...but I don't think it was ever enacted.

        Other items you list twice:
        "helped create the Office on Violence Against Women at the Department of Justice"...."Helped create Office on Violence Against Women at the Department of Justice"

        "instrumental in the passage of the Foster Care Independence Act"...."Helped pass Foster Care Independence Act"

        And being the chairperson of some board or committee is no indication that anything (good) was accomplished.

          I guess in the liberal mind, showing up for work is an accomplishment...

            I know what she didn't accomplish. She failed her first attempt at the BAR exam.

              You asked for accomplishments without qualifying what constituted an accomplishment and now complain when I hand you a broad list.

              Next time be more careful for what you ask for.

              BTW, that wasn't my list. I purloined it from Reddit.

                Based on your approach to the subject, you're another Clinton worshipper looking to sell us more bottles of snake oil.

                Since you have blocked all discussion of her actual, recorded "accomplishments", there is nothing further to discuss.

                You cannot make a silk purse of a pig's ass.

                        From that list above looks like she showed up at a bunch of stuff where women and children were involved in the legislation but the stuff was also little more than expanding the social-welfare state and spending money.

                            Let's not forget her laughing at her success in getting a rapist acquitted even as she knew he was guilty...
