- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Senator Clinton worked with her colleagues to secure the funds New York needed to rebuild. She fought to provide compensation to the families of the victims, grants for hard-hit businesses, and health care for front line workers at Ground Zero. She continues to work for resources that enable New York to grow, to improve homeland security for New York and other communities, and to protect all Americans from future attacks. She has introduced legislation to provide for direct and threat-based homeland security funding to ensure that first responders and high-target communities have the resources they need.
As First Lady, her public involvement with many activities sometimes led to controversy. Undeterred by critics, Hillary won many admirers for her staunch support for women around the world and her commitment to children's issues.

President Bush was not respected by world leaders. President Obama's first order was to re-connect the long distance lines to the Oval Office.
Hillary has an extensive history with world leaders, their customs, concerns, fears, and their lies. She is on a grand mission--spelling out our policy, taking no guff, and doing so with a Gandhi like feel.

Yes--her record speaks for itself. The dems messed up big time when they side stepped her last election.
