(Campaign for America's Future) -- After Carly Fiorina said at the Republican debate, “If you want to stump a Democrat, ask them to name an accomplishment of Mrs. Clinton,” Politico Magazine tested the proposition and asked 20 Democrats. I was asked, and I was not stumped. Here is my contribution:
Hillary Clinton has four major accomplishments from her tenure as Secretary of State: winning the United Nations resolution supporting military intervention in Libya, the New START arms control treaty with Russia, renewing diplomatic ties with Myanmar and setting in the motion talks that culminated in the Iran nuclear deal.
We don’t see the Clinton campaign or other Democrats leap to cite most of these accomplishments because they come with degrees of future uncertainty and, in the case of Libya, associations with the tangentially related Benghazi attack. But they are significant accomplishments nonetheless.
