Is Hillary Clinton transformational or overrated? President Obama certainly seems to think the first option is the better choice.
"I think Hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we've had," Obama said.
But not everyone agrees. A former administration official tells the Los Angeles Times that it's difficult to pin down Clinton's legacy as one of the best secretaries of state in American history.
"It's tough to see what's happened in world politics over the last four years that wouldn't have happened without her. So it's tough to see how she gets in the category of truly great, transformational secretaries."
