Lissa Muscatine writes a great piece in the Huffington Post about Hillary Clinton’s detailed foreign policy experience.
Anyone who doubts Hillary Clinton’s impact on the world stage might want to check with the top political leaders in Northern Ireland, who cite her work to end sectarian violence there and help secure a lasting peace.
Anyone who doubts Hillary Clinton’s international experience might consult with democracy activists in the Slovak Republic, who remember when she stood in solidarity with them and publicly challenged their new government’s suppression of civil society.
They might talk to women – from the Philippines to Latin America to the Middle East – who can vote, own property, or go to school, because Hillary Clinton helped start a global women’s movement for women’s rights. Or they might travel to Africa and Asia, where Hillary Clinton visited countless remote villages to show how the poorest of the poor could become entrepreneurial and self-sufficient when given access to small loans
So what has Obama done? Oh yeah, nothing.
This list of Hillary Clinton’s accomplishment, outside of Bill Clinton, literally goes on for quite sometime. What people often overlook is that Hillary Clinton is one of the most well loved figures abroad. In a time where the United States is a pariah all around the world, having a person with the prestige, respect, and admiration that Hillary Clinton has abroad would go a long way in repairing our relationship with other countries. The leaders of the world would gladly look forward to a return to of the peace and prosperity during the nineties.
