To be fair to Hillary, she hasn’t exactly been out front of her own campaign lately, making the case to Americans that she’s worth the time and effort required to vote in a Presidential election, so it’s not surprising that a panel of Democrats in Iowa – the state whose caucus she’ll have to win to solidify her position as the Democratic frontrunner – have absolutely no idea what she’s done with her life.
When Mark Halperin asked them to name even one, single, solitary thing Hillary Clinton did while in office that made an impression on them, the whole crowd looked as him as though it were possible he was speaking Chinese and that this was just an elaborate, if oddly prescient, prank.
As Carly Fiorina famously said a couple of weeks ago, a job title isn’t, per se, an accomplishment. You have to do something other than ride your husband’s coat-tails to prominence. As Senator, Hillary Clinton was most famous for popularizing a haircut; as Secretary of State, she’s most famous for her confusion in the wake of an ambassador’s brutal murder. As a person, she’s mostly famous for pantsuits. As a lawyer, she’s mostly famous for being fired.
None of those can be, honestly, listed as an accomplishment. But since she’s not answering any questions, I suppose it’ll be up to Democrats to figure that out for themselves.
