When meeting with The San Francisco Chronicle editorial board, Democratic California Senator Diane Feinstein was caught off-guard when asked to name Hillary Clinton‘s accomplishments when they served together in the Senate.
“As someone who worked with Hillary Clinton for nearly a decade in the Senate, what in your view was her signature accomplishment as a senator?” an editor asked. Clinton and Feinstein served eight years together from 2001 to 2009.
“Golly, I forget what bills she’s been part of or authored,” Feinstein responded. “I didn’t really come prepared to discuss this.”
“But she’s been a good senator,” the Clinton supporter continued. “There are things outside of bills that you can do, and I know that she’s done them for her state… she was never there long enough to achieve the degree of seniority that affords her the ability to do more.”
“Get on Google,” she told an aide, who eventually came up with Clinton’s support for the Child Health Insurance Program (as First Lady, not as a senator).
