Where did the 35 years come from?

Thursday, February 21, 2008 by Dave Winer.

William King asks how Hillary Clinton justifies her claim that she has 35 years experience in government.

It boggles my mind how Hillary came up with a grand total of 35 years of political experience. I know she has seven years of being a senator. Now she has never served in a political position, or a public office, prior to that. Neither has she had a high profile job in the government: she wasn't a secretary of any department. So where has she gotten the other 28 years from? That I would truly like to know.
Good question. Looks like a real stretch. Permalink to this paragraph
