Joke of the day: White House claims Hillary Clinton was "a very effective Secretary of State”

Hillary and Obama LaughingI challenge anyone to name just one legitimate successful accomplishment Hillary Clinton had while serving as President Obama's Secretary of State.

On Monday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said that Hillary Clinton "proved to be a very effective Secretary of State."

"The fact is the President obviously had an opportunity to see up close how effective a campaigner she can be. She was obviously a very formidable opponent in the 2008 contest for the Democratic nomination.

"During the general election in 2008, Secretary Clinton was a very effective advocate for President Obama’s general election campaign and over the course of the President’s first term here in office,

"Secretary Clinton proved to be a very effective Secretary of State.

"Over that time, President Obama had the opportunity to build a strong personal relationship with her. As the president indicated in his news conference on Saturday, the two of them have become friends.

“There are other people who are friends of the president who may at some point decide to get into the race. So, the President has not offered up any sort of endorsement at this point. This will be the responsibility of Democratic voters to decide who should be the Democratic nominee for president.

"But I would anticipate that once that process concluded voters have decided who the Democratic nominee should be, I think that Democratic nominee can be confident they will enjoy the support of President Obama in that campaign," Earnest said.
