And she wants to become the first Republican President?
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called on Thursday for the creation of a high-level commission to examine U.S. defense spending.
Speaking at a town hall-style campaign appearance in New Hampshire, Clinton said: “I think we are overdue for a very thorough debate in our country about what we need, and how we are going to pay for it.”
She added: “Very often, leadership of the Defense Department wants to eliminate certain spending, or wants to change it, and they’re stopped by the Congress.”
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Thursday the Obama administration’s decision on whether to approve the Keystone XL pipeline oil pipeline was overdue and she “can’t wait too much longer” to say where she stands on the issue.
The White House said last month the U.S. State Department continued to review TransCanada Corp’s proposed Keystone XL pipeline from Canada’s oil sands to Gulf Coast refineries.
“I worked in the administration, I started the process that was supposed to lead to a decision, I can’t wait too much longer and I’m putting the white House on notice. I’m going to tell you what I think soon, because I can’t wait,” Clinton told a town hall-style campaign event in New Hampshire.
Clinton, the former secretary of state, has not stated whether she favors approval of the pipeline.
