PHILADELPHIA – Notoriously missing from Hillary Clinton’s acceptance speech here at the Democratic National Convention was a list of any significant accomplishments from her time as Secretary of State.
The words “secretary of state” only appeared twice in her speech.
One of those times she stated, “I have to tell you, as your Secretary of State, I went to 112 countries, and when people hear those words – they hear America.”
Here, she seems to be brandishing her foreign travel as a signature achievement while she was one of the nation’s highest serving diplomats.
The second and final direct mention of her former State position came when she exclaimed, “As you know, I’m not one of those people. I’ve been your First Lady. Served 8 years as a Senator from the great State of New York. Then I represented all of you as Secretary of State.”
When she did briefly mention her record, Clinton mostly spoke in generalities and she seemed to be combining her time as a Senator and Secretary of State.
Look at my record. I’ve worked across the aisle to pass laws and treaties and to launch new programs that help millions of people. And if you give me the chance, that’s what I’ll do as President.
