A Look at Hillary Clinton’s “Experience” Claims

But the one he’s working for this year and is asking Iowa Democrats to caucus for Jan. 3 is the “most qualified non-incumbent I’ve ever supported,” the former president said Friday as he stumped across Eastern Iowa for his wife, Hillary Clinton.
Among the people who showed up to hear the former president speak, were Earl and Patricia. Earl was impressed with Ms. Clinton because of he’s convinced that the former First Lady will shake things up.
“She’s for change,” explained Earl, who will be a first-time caucusgoer.
Patricia liked the fact that Clinton was “experienced”.
