What's the big deal about experience esp if that experience has yielded little or nothing?
She's done a lot actually -- agreeing with what she's done is something else entirely.
James Traub did an excellent piece on The Hillary Clinton Doctrine.

When the Atlantic’s Jeff Goldberg asked Clinton if American action in 2012 could have prevented or muted the rise of the Islamic State, she said that, while that could never be known, "I know that the failure to help build up a credible fighting force of the people who were the originators of the protests against Assad ... left a big vacuum, which the jihadists have now filled." It is hard to imagine that a President Hillary Clinton would have drawn a “red line,” as Obama did, on the use of chemical arms, and then failed to make good on her threat once Assad crossed that line. She would have understood the cost to American credibility of walking back such a threat.

Well Gringotts - perhaps you should go back and REREAD the post that I was responding to. Had nothing to do with the other candidates, but whatev.

Without that black support, Clinton would be facing a repeat of 2008.

Oh, nice! Characterizing all southern black voters as 'low information'. Way to win people over!!!

To listen to Bernie supporters and their talking points - one would think that Hillary drove each and every plane to drop ALL the bombs; singlehandedly drove the tanks and 4500 American soldiers over; has complete and full control over THE ENTIRE banking system AND Wall Street.

It's silly and more and more people are realizing it.

The Iraq war belongs to George W. Bush and Dick Cheney and NOT Hillary Clinton or any other Senator.
