Serious Question

Should Hillary's time spent as first lady of Arkansas and the U.S. be considered relevant experience or a hiatus in her resume?

Are older professional women likely to discern this differently than men and millenials?

No flaming please, just honest opinions.

The simple answer is yes.

I think you are asking out of true sincerity and will get some solid replies giving you better clarity. That's why it stopped at a one.

Put it this way. For many of us here, Clintons experience in those two times alone makes her overqualified for our jobs.

Field specific of course. That is about as simple as I can make the concept and politely show why this is actually based in different concepts of how women are viewed.

and she might benefit by getting into those details instead of broad platitudes.
