(9:41 AM) | Adam Kotsko:
ExperienceIt's becoming increasingly obvious that Hillary Clinton's supposed foreign policy experience has been greatly exaggerated. Since Clinton presumably remembers her own life, and since she is presumably not stupid, the question arises: Why exaggerate her experience if she knew that the record wouldn't support her claims?
My theory: "experience" has all along been a codeword for "hawkishness," but she couldn't come right out and claim to be hawkish in a Democratic primary campaign.
