Hillary’s Foreign Policy Experience

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.

  1. She never did anything outside of Bill Clinton since she’d never have had the opportunity if she hadn’t been married to the US president, but let’s leave that point aside for the nonce.

    You laud her because foreigners like her. I say OK, I believe that; let her run for office in their benighted countries. She’s running for office in the US though, where a lot of us would rather have anything – including a 3rd term of the nutjob “W” or Cthulhu – rather than her.

    Franky her domestic policies suck rocks unless you’re fond of being taxed into the ground to support a Nanny State. Compared to that her foreign policy capabilities – not too shabby really – mean slightly more than squat to me.

    And Al Gore would have never been able to win in 2000 without Bill Clinton being elected.

    I love the fact that conservatives dont provide arguments as much as they do shitty taglines

  4. LOL! You’re standardized leftist diatribe aside, you’re right – Gore couldn’t have won in 2000 on his own.

    Do you really need me to cite reams of data on the costs associated with Hillary’s domestic agenda? I doubt it. You now the costs as well as I; you just find the ends worth the means, whereas I don’t. That’s a valid difference of political opinion and not cause for rancor.
