Hillary Rodham Clinton just became the most accomplished Secretary Of State in US history, breaking the record of the most nations visited.

Here are her impressive stats since becoming Secretary of State in 2009: she has logged 351 days on the road, traveled to 102 countries and flown a whopping 843,839 miles!

While some previous secretaries may have flown more miles – mainly due to shuttling back and forth to the Mideast on peace missions – none has visited more nations. Clinton broke that record last month, eclipsing Madeleine Albright’s total of 98, when she traveled to Finland for number 99 and then hit the 100 mark in Latvia. [via].

    Very interesting stats. She is certainly a credit to our country. She is intelligent, and presents herself so very well.

    I hope she’s a frequent flyer member! We could save tons of money if she flew on miles. ; )
