"The world has changed in dramatic ways, and it seems that she's really grown as a candidate and as a leader. Her experience as secretary of state is certainly bolstering all that she brings to the table," she said.
Some, however, believe Clinton's tenure as secretary of state is more of a liability. Critics, including Paul, have questioned her ability to serve as commander in chief because of her role in the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya.
