McCain: Hillary 'Outstanding' Sec of State…Except for Benghazi

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) again praised Hillary Clinton on Monday, saying her work as Secretary of State was “outstanding” with the exception of the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi. 

“Her work as secretary of state, with the exception of this issue of Benghazi — which isn’t going away — I think has been outstanding,” McCain said. “I think she would be viewed by anyone, Republican or Democrat, as a very formidable candidate for 2016.”

McCain has previously said that it would be a “tough choice” if the 2016 election were between Clinton and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), whom McCain has called a “wacko bird.”
