Hillary Clinton Says Women Would Make Up 50% of Cabinet

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton said Monday night that she would make sure half her Cabinet members were women.

During an MSNBC town hall, she repeated a formulation her husband had made about Cabinets and specifically applied it to sex and a number.

“Well, I am going to have a Cabinet that looks like America, and 50 percent of America is women,” Mrs. Clinton said.

“Whether it’s in a vice president or members of a Cabinet or in the White House staff, I want as broad a set of experiences that I can possibly draw together, because I’m someone who likes to listen to people who come at problems from different perspectives,” she said.
