Hillary Clinton's record on jobs

I've seen a Hillary Clinton commercial several times in recent weeks in which she promises to create "5 million new jobs" if she's elected president.

Does anyone actually believe that?

In 2000, while running for the U.S. Senate, Hillary Clinton promised to bring 200,000 new jobs to New York. Six years later, after serving her first term as U.S. Senator from New York, newspapers reported a net job loss of 40,000 in New York.

What happened to the 200,000 jobs Hillary Clinton promised?

Why are so many unions endorsing Clinton when she has such a terrible track record of keeping jobs or attracting new jobs?

How many U.S. jobs have been lost because of the one-sided trade agreements signed into law by Bill Clinton?
