1. Here's the main difference I see in them
Hillary Clinton believes in responding when attacked. In Arkansas, Bill Clinton used to believe that when your political opponents attacked you with a bunch of lies, you didn't have to respond. He believed people would know the truth.

Hillary taught him otherwise; she explained that when you are attacked, you have to respond. Otherwise, if you don't respond, believe will believe what your detractors are saying.

I don't think she would have waited like John Kerry did to respond to the Swift Boaters. She would have been right on it, debunking them.
