Associated Press reporter Cal Woodward takes a look at some of the claims the Democratic rivals made in Tuesday night's debate and how they compare with the facts.
Experience, especially of the frequent flyer miles variety as Secretary of State, does not equate with accomplishments. The incredibly sad state of foreign affairs for the last 7 years is an indisputable testament of the legacy Hillary Clinton shares with Obama.
The one position in which Hillary was particularly effective, at least for part of the time, was in the area of bimbo control in the wake of her husband's frequent dalliances. She could issue damning PR and character assassination with the best of them.
