Inaccurate statement in edit history[edit]

In the edit history, I made an incorrect assertion about another's edits. I claimed that an editor removed material and references (see this diff - [1]). This is incorrect. The editor only removed a small of amount of text and did not remove any references. I was confused by three edits in a row, where it appeared to me that text and references had been removed. I apologize for saying references were removed. At the same time, I think it was appropriate to restore the removed text because no rationale was given for its removal. Thanks. ---Steve Quinn (talk) 07:25, 15 December 2016‎

First Lady-Senator overlap[edit]

I do not believe this is mentioned, and I feel it would be worth mentioning. Due to the fact that both houses of congress are sworn-in ahead of the President and Vice President's inauguration, Mrs. Clinton's tenures as First Lady and United States Senator overlapped with one another for more than sixteen days. In other words, she held both titles simultaneously for a period longer than two-weeks. I believe the only means one has of finding this out when reading the article is currently to do the math themselves if they have a keen enough eye. Appears noteworthy enough to warrant a one-sentence mention. SecretName101 (talk) 03:36, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

Find a RS which discusses it and then you can do it. Otherwise it's OR. -- BullRangifer (talk) 14:52, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

2016 presidential campaign[edit]

We're obligated to tell the truth also when it's not in obvious favor of the person which the article deals with. We are not meant to write tilting biographies, and in the case of Hillary is the presidential campaign included. To compare Putin with Hitler, like she did in March 2016, is included in this. How a US President Candidate talks about other leaders of other large countries, isn't UNDUE for the presidential campaign part of this article. And it was at the very least noted by the UK news agency Reuters. Boeing720 (talk) 22:45, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

Your paragraph seems to twist the meaning of what she said, hence WP:OR. Plus, one speech out of how ever many she gave during the campaign which received little coverage doesn't deserve its own paragraph on this page, per WP:UNDUE. Also, I didn't notice this until after I reverted your edit, the grammar was poor. – Muboshgu (talk) 22:48, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
Not only that, but it was in March 2014, so it wasn't even during the campaign. Black Kite (talk) 22:49, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
UNDUE ? OR !? Taken from Reuters, UK - [2], ABC - [3] unknown source [4] etc. Also during the last TV-debate with Trump, the second question was for Trump only (about the Mexico border, I think), Clinton now got some free time, and used it in order to make other allegation about Putin himself, yet again. I haven't invended her poor knowledge on European History. It's no OR - and most certainly not UNDUE either. (I'm not in favor of Trump) But why is she smiling on all our images ? It's a pure PRO-Hillary article ! Boeing720 (talk) 01:27, 18 August 2017 (UTC)
Lot's of people drew a parallel between the annexation by Putin of Crimea and the earlier annexation of the Sudetenland by Hitler. It's not major. TFD (talk) 02:19, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

I'm thinking of adding a section in the article about Hillary Clinton's relationship with Huma Abedin[edit]

I think it would be a good thing to add to the article given the history there. I will source the section correctly of course within the standards set forth by wikipedia, but there is some information on the subject now coming to light — Preceding unsigned comment added by 47.150.249.19 (talk) 01:04, 29 August 2017 (UTC)

Probably a bad idea, since there are no sections about her relationships with other people. Her relationship with Bill Clinton for example has received more attention and we don't have a section about it. TFD (talk) 01:53, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
Please don't. She has had many notable relationships with notable people and we cannot include them in her already quite detailed and lengthy bio, correctly so. This is an article about HRC's whole life and career - who and what has had an impact on her life - a section on her relationship with Huma Abedin would have undue weight in the balance of this article. Thank you for the suggestion, but this won't fly. Tvoz/talk 02:26, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
