Hillary Clinton’s greatest accomplishments as Secretary of State — it sounds like a good idea for a short article. Perhaps a short article assigned by a malicious editor.
Asked by a friendly questioner (Tom Friedman) to identify her greatest accomplishments as Secretary, Hillary Clinton gave a two-minute answer that has a sort of “Where’s Waldo?” quality to it (video below). It might be passable for low-information voters, but she should probably sharpen that answer up a bit as she prepares to seek higher office.
There is an unintentionally satirical component to her brief answer as well. She claims as part of the legacy of her accomplishments our ability “to deal with problems like Ukraine because we’re not so worried about a massive collapse in Europe and China…” Somebody cue the laugh track!
Hillary’s answer reminds me of the old Jack Benny joke. When some thug threatens him: “Your money or your life,” Jack Benny pauses. When the thug repeats the threat, Benny exclaims: “I’m thinking it over!”
