As Hillary Clinton touts record, critics search for her Achilles heel

She sounds increasingly like a presidential contender, but as Hillary Clinton mulls a run, Republicans are taking aim at her record in a bid to smother the momentum building around her prospective campaign.

With critics dragging her into the political fray before she has announced 2016 plans, Team Clinton is pushing back against Republican storylines that she may not be fit for another gruelling White House race, and that she was an ineffectual secretary of state crafting her own political future instead of advancing US interests.

Hillary, hawking a new memoir, insisted she adeptly handled an "endless set of tough calls" as the top US diplomat, prodding Iran into nuclear talks and nudging the Mideast peace process forward.

Republicans see it differently...........

1. Not that hard to find if you're a Progressive Democrat

I can see where republicans might have to resort to name calling and slander.

3. Given the 'accomplishments' of her predecessor...

She looks pretty good, IMHO. I mean, wtf did Condi ever actually do?

5. Won't be hard to find.

 

"Zelaya 's attempt to return to Honduras is reckless."
"I consider the Mubareks to be close personal friends."


Those are just a couple that pop into my mind immediately. I'm sure I could come up with several regarding Afghanistan, Israel/Iran and Syria.
