PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton, whose lifelong public service career includes turns as secretary of state, presidential candidate, senator and first lady, is the recipient of the 2013 Liberty Medal.

Clinton will receive the medal in a Sept. 10 ceremony at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. She was not in attendance for Thursday's announcement.

Liberty Medal sponsors and partners said Clinton's nearly four decades of public service exemplify the qualities that the award was established to honor, from her groundbreaking outreach to global leaders to her continuing work to advance opportunities for the world's girls and women.

"The Liberty Medal recognizes individuals who have furthered the ideals of freedom, democracy, and equality, often against great odds," said Jeffrey Rosen, National Constitution Center president and CEO. "Hillary Clinton has devoted her life to expanding opportunities for 'We the People' not just in this country but around the globe." snip

Yeah, she only lost an Ambassador on her watch. Talk about devaluing a medal. I’ll bet even John Kerry couldn’t be bothered to throw it over the White House fence. (as long as it wasn’t his).

Is this the award that’s going to be presented to her by Jeb Bush?

I hope Christopher Stevens is able to attend.

I know he’d love to see her getting such an award.

I would like to hear on just one thing she’s done that turned out successful (as the term is commonly accepted).
Watergate paralegal?
Marriage?
Whitewater/Roselawn?
Hillarycare?
Senator?
SOS?
She’s got the Midas Touch in reverse...everything she touches turns to s***t.

If that's service, I'd sure hate to encounter plundering.

Really-—no really what has HC done to make the USA or the world any better? What? Other than the media fawning all over her like she’s some star. Michelle Bachmann is a more deserving woman to receive the award but she’s dogmeat to those cretins.

Judging from that list of past recipients, it looks like some kind of Commie Lib Award the commies give to each other.

Years from now, offspring of low information voters will be able to walk into the National Constitution Center and gaze upon the faces of those that placed the chains around their ankles. (If it hasn't been burned down by then, or changed into a dollar 100 Dollar store.)

“When we got organized as a country and we wrote a fairly radical Constitution with a radical Bill of Rights, giving a radical amount of individual freedom to Americans, it was assumed that the Americans who had that freedom would use it responsibly.... [However, now] there’s a lot of irresponsibility. And so a lot of people say there’s too much freedom. When personal freedom’s being abused, you have to move to limit it.” - Bill Clinton

No, not really. Just a quick quip.

It is laughable what she is being honored for though. It’s her nearly four decades of public service.

Yep, everything from working Watergate against Nixon, to her work for young girls and women, to being First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State, oh she’s quite the woman.

First of all, her husband and Obama are exponentially worse than Nixon. Then there’s her work for young and older women, silencing them after her husband beat and or raped them. And then there’s the jobs she never would have had if she hadn’t done so.

Hillary Clinton is one of the most corrupt women in all of history. If this were a two-bit nation, she would have had the power to kill large bodies of people. She may wind up doing so anyway.

Yep, give the broad an award. She so richly deserves it. Then cart her ass off to Leavenworth, where she belongs.
