What Hillary Clinton's first 100 days may have looked like as president

As the end of President Trump's first 100 days nears, some are speculating about what rival Hillary Clinton may have ended up achieving during the period had she won the election.

Some of the highlights outlined by Politico's Matt Latimer include nominating former Vice President Joe Biden to be Secretary of State and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham as Defense Secretary on day two.

Meanwhile, husband and former President Bill Clinton would officially be called "The First Gentleman" and daughter Chelsea Clinton would emerge as the head a White House Women's Empowerment Office and as a senior adviser to her mother—with minimal controversy.

On the Supreme Court front, a similar partisan battle would play out the way it did with Neil Gorsuch, only with Democrats pulling the nuclear option to confirm Senator Cory Booker to replace late Justice Antonin Scalia.

During Clinton's actual campaign, strategists did indicate that one of her first priorities in office would have been filling the vacant Supreme Court seat, notes The Hill.

She had also given a speech about job creation and indicated an interest in renewable energy, voting rights protections, tighter restrictions on the health care system, immigration, and infrastructure, among others.

Her objectives were quite varied, with Democratic strategist Jamal Simmon saying at the time that "the biggest challenge for her campaign has always been the lack of a clear message, a policy agenda."

Since her defeat, Clinton has slowly re-emerged into the public spotlight including addressing women's groups and declining calls to run for mayor of New York City, notes NBC News.

She has since spoken up on behalf of issues she has supported in the past like a tuition-free college program and LGBT rights.
