Hillary pushes for women to have bigger role in national security

During a speech Wednesday morning at Georgetown University, Hillary Clinton called on women to play a larger role in national security issues, saying they are “agents of peace and agents of change.”

Clinton has long been a champion of women’s rights, and recently during midterm campaigning, she touted equal pay and paid leave.

She also pointed to female defense ministers, saying they show women can “defend their countries as well as any man,” according to The Hill.

Clinton, while she also touched on Ukraine and Syria, also created buzz from an unlikely source — empty seats at Georgetown’s Gaston Hall, which is said to seat more than 700 people.

Is this a sign that America is having some serious Hillary fatigue?

Not so quick, says Avery Jaffe, who works for Ready for Hillary.
