From the office of U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski:
U.S. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski (D-Md.) today released the following statement on qualifications of Secretary Hillary Clinton to be the President of the United States:
“I don’t know anyone more qualified to be President than Hillary Clinton. She is seasoned and experienced. She knows how to help America and she knows how to protect America.
“I’ve known her as an advocate for children, a First Lady, a fellow United States Senator and a Secretary of State. She’s been an effective leader. I’ve seen it up close and personal. I’ve stood shoulder to shoulder with her championing equal pay for equal work, children’s health care and early childhood education. And I’ve always been impressed by her tremendous respect for seniors and advocacy for veterans.
“I stood with her on that dark day on September 11, 2001, when we pledged to protect America and all it stands for. As a Senator from New York, she helped pull us through.
“As Secretary of State, she was a powerhouse promoting peace. Because of her the world is a safer place.
“I’m ready for Hillary. America is ready for Hillary. And Hillary is ready to be President.”
