Clip: Season 2015 | 4m 35s

As Hillary Clinton testified for 11 hours before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, we look back in the Washington Week Vault to October 1993 when the then-First Lady went to Capitol Hill to advocate for President Bill Clinton's health care reform. In 12 hours of testimony over several days, Clinton received positive reviews. "She's able to answer questions on her feet, and she did so."
