I've read her whole biography
Thirteen years after the Iraq war began, Clinton continues to battle present-day perceptions that she's too hawkish for the liberal base of Democratic primary voters on foreign policy.
After all, she lobbied President Barack Obama hard on military action in Libya in 2011 and wanted him to do more to back anti-regime rebels in Syria as secretary of state -- and now pushes for a no-fly zone there, a much more aggressive military posture than Sanders and even several Republican candidates.
Sanders has campaigned in part on the idea that he has better judgment on foreign policy than Clinton does — which Albright called a "strange statement," considering Clinton's own extensive experience as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.
Henry Kissinger knows more about foreign policy than Bernie Sanders
He used that knowledge to prop up the Pinochet government and to expand the Vietnam War.
Colin Powell knows more about foreign policy than Bernie Sanders.
He used his knowledge to lie about the dangers of Iraq so that we could invade a country that was not a threat.
Condoleeza Rice knows more about foreign policy than Bernie Sanders.
She continued the lies of the bush administration to ensure that the United States could continue to destabilize the entire Middle-East for years.
And yes, Hillary Clinton knows more about foreign policy than Bernie Sanders.
She used that knowledge to push for the bombing of Libya, another country that presented no threat to this country.
The combined knowledge of Kissinger, Powell, Rice, and Clinton has cost this world countless lives, countless wealth, and countless opportunities for peace.
In the end, the question isn't how much does our Commander in Chief know; the question is whether they have the judgment to make the right call when the warmongers start calling for blood.
Hillary Clinton has proved time and again that she lacks the necessary wisdom and judgment to be our Commander in Chief no matter how many world leaders she's helped kill.
Edited to add: A few posters have written to ask if they could use this OP in other social media venues. I'm very flattered by the requests and if anyone wants to use it, please do. There is no need for attribution. The important thing is to make sure as many people know there is a difference between knowing a fact and having the judgment to make the right decision.

Opening your links and reading, which candidate do you think has the best foreign policy?

Just no words. All women should vote for a woman president/nominee for president? Its ludicrous.
Ok, so all males should vote for the guys. Gays for gays, blacks for blacks, white for white, etc.
Why is this woman trying to divide people? Are they that desperate for a female president to where they're trying to put down others if they choose not to?
Earlier this year, Hillary Clinton told a cheering Silicon Valley audience, “There is a special spot in hell for women who don’t help other women.”
If there is such a place in hell, Hillary has reserved parking there. It’s hard to think of any other politician who has done as much to exploit women while doing so little for them. Except maybe her husband.
While Hillary pontificated about the glass ceiling, the tabloids were filled with new allegations of sexual abuse about Clinton pal Jeffrey Epstein by one of his former “slaves”. Bill Clinton had taken frequent rides on Epstein’s private jet which had been nicknamed the “Lolita Express” because of its transportation of underage girls for the use of Epstein and some of his friends and associates.
Hillary Clinton was lecturing on feminism while new allegations were coming out about the former slave’s meeting with Bill Clinton on the “Lolita Express” and the favors that Bill owed Epstein.

And you thought religion had no place in Hillary's campaign! To the Women of the United States, you had best fall in line or you will be sentenced to Hell for your sins!
That's right! Women have a "Special" place in hell if they dare to vote for Bernie Sanders and not Hillary Clinton! Fire and brimstone await the women who dare to break ranks with the chosen one!
Palin had recounted a "providential" moment she experienced on Saturday: "I'm reading on my Starbucks mocha cup, okay? The quote of the day...
It was Madeleine Albright, former Secretary of State [crowd boos] and UN ambassador. ... Now she said it, I didn't. She said,
'There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't support other women.'"
The next day, Albright weighed in: "Though I am flattered that Governor Palin has chosen to cite me as a source of wisdom, what I said had nothing to do with politics."
“There is a special place in hell for women who don't help other women."
