Hillary Clinton has made a common retort to Barack Obama’s message of change that she has experience making change, to the tune of 35 years worth. We all know that she’s been a senator for the last few, so that time definitely counts, but I’m not sure how to assess her time as first lady or her career prior. Fortunately, someone checked into Hillary’s claims of “35 years of experience”, and it turns out that the claim seems reasonable.
Although this is article was from Congressional Quarterly, I recommend FactCheck.org to monitor the candidates truthiness. Also, Bill Moyers has featured a series of excellent interviews with political non-pundit Kathleen Hall Jamieson, the author of several books on elections, politics, and the media.
This has been a public service announcement.
