Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's new memoir about her time heading the State Department arrives in a couple weeks, further fueling the "will-she-won't-she?" chatter surrounding her potential 2016 presidential bid.
In anticipation of the arival of Hard Choices, Clinton has hit the speaking circuit, providing us fact checkers a renewed opportunity to put the former and perhaps future Democratic contender on the Truth-O-Meter. Republicans, too, are discussing (and attacking) the former first lady as they await her decision.
We recently fact-checked Clinton's speech at the New America Foundation, in which she said the U.S. was falling behind it's Canadian neighbors. We also looked at statements from GOP strategist Karl Rove and Louisianna Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal about Clinton. We rounded them up here for your reading pleasure.
