But I think it's time for a reality check.
Hillary Clinton was elected to the U.S. Senate in the year 2000. That means she has been a U.S. Senator for 7 years. Prior to that Hillary Clinton never held public office. She had been a practicing lawyer and on the board of several corporations. Her only other experience was being First Lady of the United States.
Barack Obama served in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004. He was then elected to the U.S. Senate in 2004. That's just about 10 years of legislative experience.
So can anyone explain to me how it is that Hillary Clinton claims to have more experience than Barack Obama? Am I missing something?
Do you think Hillary Clinton has more experience than Barack Obama?
Why doesn't the media challenge her assertion that she has more experience?
