REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Some analysts have said that these are the best ten days in Hillary Clinton campaign.
First, polls have shown that Americans think the Democratic presidential front runner gave the best performance in the Oct. 13 Democratic presidential debate. Then on Wednesday, Vice President Joe Biden announced he would no longer run for president. And yesterday he turned the 11-hour Republican-led congressional grilling on the Benghazi attack into a campaign call to action on foreign policy.
An upbeat Clinton appeared at a women’s forum in Washington, DC Friday morning. She told the crowd, “It’s been quite a week hasn’t it. Well, thank you all so much. I am absolutely delighted to be here. As some of you may know, I had a pretty long day yesterday.”
Fellow Democratic leaders are also ecstatic. Representative Nancy Pelosi remarked, “Of course we are very proud of Hillary Clinton. Wasn’t she wonderful yesterday?”
Clinton spent all day Thursday being questioned whether she did enough to prevent the attack in Libya against the U.S. compound in Benghazi, which led to the death of four Americans.
As lawmakers engaged in a heated debate with each other, political analysts said Clinton kept her cool throughout the hearing.
During the hearing, Representative Trey Gowdy told Clinton, ” They deserve the truth. They deserve the whole truth. They deserve nothing but the truth.”
In her defense, Clinton said, “I’ve lost more sleep than all of you put together. I have been racking my brain about what more could have been done or should have been done. And so, when I took responsibility, I took it as a challenge and an obligation to make sure, before I left the State Department, that we could learn.”
A new Quinnipiac University poll showed Clinton at 51 percent, up from 11 points since September, while main challenger Senator Bernie Sanders stayed at 40 percent and former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley earned 4 percent.
“Former Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee, who just announced that he’s ending his bid for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination said one of the reasons for his decision was that Clinton had a good week.
The Clinton camp said donations have been pouring into her campaign since her testimony at the Benghazi hearing.
