Why Hillary Is Qualified to Be the Next President
Hillary Clinton’s largest presidential competitors, Donald Trump and Senator Bernie Sanders, have found one thing they both agree on.
Earlier this month, Sanders attacked Clinton during a rally in Philadelphia.
“I don’t believe that she is qualified,” Sanders said.
Senator Sanders’ reasoning is based on Clinton receiving money from Wall Street and when she voted for the war in Iraq. Donald Trump quickly jumped into the debate through Twitter, openly siding with Sanders.
From the start of Election 2016, Clinton has been called many things by her 2016 presidential opponents, such as ‘unqualified.’ However, Clinton’s supporters argue that she is the most qualified candidate that they have seen in years.
Clinton gained interest in law and politics at a young age. She obtained her law degree from Yale University in 1973, where she met her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
After her time in the White House, Clinton was elected United States senator from New York, where she served for eight years.
Following a failed presidential nomination in 2008, Clinton released her delegates to Barack Obama and went on to support him during the rest of the election and through his presidency. After his election, President Obama named Clinton Secretary of State, a position she held from 2009 to 2013.
Clinton has put in her time and has shown her dedication through a lifetime of work. It is not an issue of her qualifications, but an issue of likability that could harm her while fighting to win the Democratic nomination.
