Clinton pushed hard dozens of times for the Pacific trade deal she now opposes as a presidential candidate. Clinton said during this speech "There is new momentum in our trade agenda with the recent passage of the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement and our ongoing work on a binding, high-quality Trans-Pacific Partnership, the so-called TPP. The TPP will bring together economies from across the Pacific, developed and developing alike, into a single 21st century trading community." (Marco Garcia/ AP file)

So far at the Democratic National Convention, we've heard about presidential nominee Hillary Clinton mostly as a senator, wife and mother, and less about her role in the Obama administration as secretary of state.

As Donald Trump's comments questioning the country's commitments to NATO and, today, encouraging Russian agents to hack into Secretary Clinton's emails, have come under scrutiny, foreign policy may end up playing a significant role in deciding this year's election.
