4. "Neither of us were in the Senate when NAFTA passed. Neither voted one way or the other."
OK, but one of the candidates has a spouse who was the President of the United States at the time. And one of those candidates is counting those White House years as part of a "35 Years of Experience" package.

So, sorry, but I'm not buying, and she can't have it both freaking ways.
