#LadyBoss: Is Hillary Clinton the most qualified presidential candidate ever?

First lady, senator, secretary of state, email sender, pantsuit style icon and so much more.

We did some digging, and on paper, very few past presidential candidates have had as much experience as Hillary Clinton. 

Our past presidents include ambassadors, members of congress and the president's cabinet, Supreme Court justices, vice president's and even Founding Fathers.

She is certainly not flawless, nor does she have an impeccable record, but she is in good company in terms of qualifications on paper.

And on July 26, she made history as the first woman to be named the nominee by a major party.

As secretary of state, Clinton worked closely with President Barack Obama and helped advise him on the infamous Osama Bin Laden raid. 

In 2000, she became the first female senator from New York. After 9/11, she pushed to get health care for responders.

Clinton has consistently championed human rights, specifically women's and kids' rights. As first lady, she notably spoke out about women's equality at the UN World Conference for Women in Beijing.

Also, she even found time to win a Grammy.
