Hillary Clinton was exquisitely prepared for the Democratic debate this week, and it showed. Moreover, she has consistently studied and learned her lessons throughout her public career.
When Secretary Clinton was elected as Senator of New York, partly due to the dignified way she handled the Monica Lewinsky crisis, she could have relied on her celebrity instead of focusing on the minutiae of her job. But that would have showed, and she chose the harder path.
She kept her head down, assumed a low profile and concentrated on delivering the best representation possible for her constituents. Hillary learned from other Senators, and she did such a good job that she was easily re-elected.
The entire nation is just beginning to see her productivity and diligence in the way she is handling this run for the Presidency. Running a national organization takes practice, and Hillary is learning from the last time around, focusing on securing delegates and building an efficient campaign infrastructure. This infrastructure will stand her in good stead for the general election and will ultimately result in the first woman President of the United States.
This week’s debate was just the start of a reintroduction to the American people, and we need a well-prepared President to deal with the complex situations in today’s globalized world. We should trust her to handle her duties conscientiously.
