4. A Promotion is in Order
Hillary Clinton aims to become the first former Secretary of State to get elected President since James Buchanan in 1856. In addition to Buchanan, only Martin Van Buren, John Quincy Adams, James Monroe, James Madison, and Thomas Jefferson have accomplished this. While only a few Secretaries of State have attempted runs at the White House, some have also done so before getting to the State Department (like current Secretary John Kerry).
