And she took no prisoners. More later when I’ve looked at the hearings on c-span but I think this picture says it all. This is Hillary giving her full attention to John McCain while he jumped all over her ass.
I know. Priceless isn’t it.
I told you guys her testimony was going to be something to look forward to. I don’t know what the Republicans were expecting. She’s no first lady in a headband dragged before congress to explain where a missing box of billing records are anymore. She’s a seasoned politician and executive branch official with command of the facts and she has opinions that she’s not too diplomatic to share.
Oh, and women are now cleared for combat. I hate war but if there was one step that I think is absolutely necessary for full constitutional equality, this would be it. You can’t send a woman to war, hand her a gun and tell her to shoot someone and then tell her she can’t get her OC prescription filled or have an abortion. Well, you can, but it will be much harder to do now. And men can’t pull that “I served on the frontlines in a war” crap in politics. It levels a great deal of the playing field.
Woah! This snip of hearing is very interesting and should raise lots of ire:
4:37 PM: Rep. Joe Kennedy — the one with the red hair — asks if Clinton could share any lessons she learned as Secretary of State.
4:38 PM: Clinton says that she learned to meet extremists and terrorists in the same channels they occupy — e.g.. television, social media, etc
Gotta track down that clip. It’s a keeper.
