Just curious.

As a senator she successfully did three things
https://www.congress.gov/member/hillary ... 2law%22%7D
1. S.3145 — 110th Congress (2007-2008) A bill to designate a portion of United States Route 20A, located in Orchard Park, New York, as the "Timothy J. Russert Highway".

2. S.3613 — 109th Congress (2005-2006) A bill to designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 2951 New York Highway 43 in Averill Park, New York, as the "Major George Quamo Post Office Building".

3. S.1241 — 108th Congress (2003-2004) Kate Mullany National Historic Site Act
As SecState she successfully screwed these pooches.

A Zen Koan that applies here:

A senior monk and a junior monk were traveling together. At one point, they came to a river with a strong current. As the monks were preparing to cross the river, they saw a very young and beautiful woman also attempting to cross. The young woman asked if they could help her cross to the other side.

The two monks glanced at one another because they had taken vows not to touch a woman.

Then, without a word, the older monk picked up the woman, carried her across the river, placed her gently on the other side, and carried on his journey.

The younger monk couldn’t believe what had just happened. After rejoining his companion, he was speechless, and an hour passed without a word between them.

Two more hours passed, then three, finally the younger monk could contain himself any longer, and blurted out “As monks, we are not permitted a woman, how could you then carry that woman on your shoulders?”

The older monk looked at him and replied, “Brother, I set her down on the other side of the river, why are you still carrying her?”

Hillary is the gift that keeps on giving.

Just was wondering how she got the reputation for being accomplished.

Between the Hillary faction seeming to think that "THIS, surely, is the gaffe that will be the end of Trump". And the Trump faction (including Trump himself) seeming to think they are still running against Hillary, it's like 2016 never ended. And everyone on both side still acting like you murdered their dog by having it choke to death on their cat if you don't support their candidate in a race that is no longer going on

This is the 2016 election in the form of a song sung by puppets...And at this point I feel like the curly haired lady in the video

FWIW, this site claims a few.

Some of theme are weaksauce "contributed" fluff that a resume might have. But there are some worthy of note, I think.

Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one.

I don't see a lot. A came across a site that gave her credit for her health care initiative which was an abortion, getting funding for NYC after 9/11 (!!) and some dogs and cats that are ok but worthy of a first term congressman from Oregon. Chairing shit is not an accomplishment, it is a sinecure. She colluded with the Russians and fucked up the middle east. This article gave her credit for taking out Osma bin Laden. One can only laugh.

The one that stands out for me is the Iran sanctions, honestly.

Which ended Iran's commission of terrorism in the Middle East.

That was awesome!

<Thanks, Doc, for those insights. Much appreciated.> <----note that this refers to a diffewrnent post. The humor is sorta missing in this context :oops:

Seems to me that while Bush screwed the pooch with Iran, Hillary/Obama created a larger mess with their policies vis a vis Iran and Syria. And, we know that Obama colluded with the Russians. Clearly and undeniably. The result of which appeared to be to give Putin (boo hiss) a free hand in Syria. And that, too, is on Hillary. She can't bask in the glory of her "accomplishments" as Sec State without owning foreign policy and it's ramifications.

With Hillary as Secretary of ... whatever it was ... , instead of just old fashioned comprehensible stuff like "war for oil", we had war for war's sake.

Veritably the Oscar Wilde of war.

That proved she was tough enough to be president.

This.

I had always suspected that whatever she did was done with an eye to the next thing. The classic criticism of women in hitherto male positions is that they cannot be "tough enough". Establishing such creds takes lives but after all, you can't make an omelet without breaking eggs.

I think it was quite an accomplishment to get Russia and China on board, when they have a history of refusing to cooperate in international sanctions. I think it's believable that this is one factor that got Iran negotiating seriously on its nuclear weapons program.

Sorry, I don't see that. They (O + H) gave Russia free reign in Chechnya and Syria, exercised no control over China manipulating currencies and dumping product here. In effect, the O+H foreign policy was to stand down. We are worse off economically and the world is a more dangerous place thanks to their actions. Nothing to be proud of, that I can see.

I say O+H because there was nothing that she did as sec state was done without O's support and or under his direction. Busk stops with O no matter how it is spun.
