Not Her Proudest Moment After All?

Given that Donald Trump's claim to the presidency rests on his business skills, I have to wonder why Hillary Clinton doesn't boast about her amazing record in business:

In 1978 and 1979, lawyer and First Lady of Arkansas Hillary Rodham engaged in a series of trades of cattle futures contracts. Her initial $1,000 investment had generated nearly $100,000 when she stopped trading after ten months. In 1994, after Hillary Rodham Clinton had become First Lady of the United States, the trading became the subject of considerable controversy regarding the likelihood of such a spectacular rate of return, possible conflict of interest, and allegations of disguised bribery,[1] allegations that Clinton strongly denied. Clinton was never charged with any wrongdoing.

Oh, sure, haters will say it was a corrupt arrangement.

But if Clinton's investment skills were that great, why isn't she boasting now when she needs it most?
