It is a mystery to me why some millenials say they cannot relate to Hillary Clinton. When choosing a presidential candidate, it behooves us to go beyond the rhetoric and look at her accomplishments.
Clinton championed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, which has helped give women equal pay for equal work, and has advocated for microfinance programs that enable women to start their own businesses.
Planned Parenthood Action Fund has endorsed Hillary Clinton, saying she has “demonstrated the strongest record, clearest leadership, and most focused commitment to women’s health of any presidential candidate.”
She worked with Republicans and Democrats to help create the Children's Health Insurance Program, as of 2014 providing health coverage to 8.1 million children.
Never miss a local story.
As Secretary of State, Clinton restored the credibility of the United States. Under her management of the State Department, we saw a 50 percent increase in exports to China and aggressive work on climate change. She accomplished the remarkable coordination of China, Russia and the European Union to exact sanctions against Iran.
To those who find it hard to connect with Hillary Clinton, I ask, what more could you want than a smart, effective leader?
