Bloomberg Politics recently gathered a group of Iowa Democrats to discuss former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s viability as a presidential candidate. The group seemed pretty unanimous that Clinton is Democrats’ best chance to keep the White House in 2016.
However, the tone of the discussion immediately changed when host Mark Halperin asked them to name one thing Clinton accomplished while she was secretary of state.
“I really can’t name anything off the top of my head,” one of the Democrats replied.
“Give me a minute, go someplace else,” another person jokingly replied.
Yet another Democrat argued she didn’t really “follow along” with everything that was “going on” during Clinton’s tenure at the State Department.
“I mean it’s either going to be that or it’s going to be Scott Walker, you know, taking away, destroying America’s unions,” replied Ryan, a 24-year-old graphic designer, said. “And there’s just, you know, she’s not perfect. But she’s been in the eye for a long time, in the public’s eye, and you’re going to have some stuff on her. But she has great policies and she knows how to get stuff done.”
