The National Constitution Center has chosen its winner of the 2013 Liberty Medal, an award that goes to someone who “furthered the ideals of freedom, democracy, and equality, often against great odds.”
This year, it goes to this person:
And former Florida governor Jeb Bush is presenting the award to her, not reluctantly, but willingly. After all, he’s the NCC Chairman:
“Former Secretary Clinton has dedicated her life to serving and engaging people across the world in democracy,” Bush, the NCC’s chairman, said in a statement announcing the award. “These efforts as a citizen, an activist, and a leader have earned Secretary Clinton this year’s Liberty Medal.”
I don’t know that I’ve ever associated the word “leader” with Hillary Clinton. I’ve associated a few others, but never “leader.”
Meanwhile, four people were still killed in Benghazi. But what difference, at this point, does it make? Am I right, Jeb?
Someone please get the video of this presentation. I have a feeling it will come in handy during the 2016 Republican primaries. I don’t want a GOP candidate who’d head an organization willing to give Hillary Clinton an award for furthering freedom.
