Hillary was once again in Gaston Hall at Georgetown University this morning for an event hosted by the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security and the Institute for Inclusive Security.  She spoke on “Smart Power: Security Through Inclusive Leadership,”  and  the event was livestreamed.  Unfortunately,  the only announcement we found was this one dated yesterday, so it was impossible to provide folks with a heads-up.

Hillary Rodham Clinton to Speak on Security, Inclusive Leadership

December 1, 2014 – The Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security (GIWPS) and the Institute for Inclusive Security will host remarks on Wednesday by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on “Smart Power: Security Through Inclusive Leadership.”

Hillary Clinton Lauds Female Leaders as ‘Agents of Change’

“Women leaders, it has been found, are good at building coalitions across ethnic and sectarian lines and speaking up for other marginalized groups,” the former secretary of state told attendees at a Georgetown University conference entitled “Smart Power: Security Through Inclusive Leadership.”

“It’s important to underscore this overriding fact: women are not just victims of conflict,” added Clinton, who is widely viewed as a potential first female president if she chooses to run in 2016. “They are agents of peace and agents of change.”

Note to Dana Milbank, M. Scott Mahaskey, and others who chose to focus on attendance:  It is difficult to attract an audience to an unpublicized event. Here at Still4Hill we attempt to keep folks abreast of Hillary’s upcoming appearances.  We depend on a variety of newsfeeds for this information.  No one gets automatic updates on Hillary’s speaking engagements, and Hillary’s supporters do not have clairvoyant abilities to know when and where she is speaking.  Had this event been better publicized, attendance would have been as healthy as it has proven at other events.  Her speech tomorrow at the Massachusetts Conference for Women has been sold out since before news of it came through in a newfeed.


Just in from the Department of Flies-on-the-Wall…

President Barack Obama had an hour-long “catch-up” session Wednesday with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to “enjoy an informal discussion on a wide range of issues,” says a White House official.

Statement by President Clinton, Secretary Clinton, and Chelsea Clinton on World AIDS Day 2014


Not very long ago, it would have been hard to imagine that there would ever be an AIDS-free generation. Now we’re moving toward it with remarkable partnerships all over the world.

This year, 13 million people around the world are receiving life-saving AIDS drugs and treatment, including 8.2 million with access to lower prices as a result of negotiations by the Clinton Health Access Initiative. Mother to child transmissions are down in many countries, more children are on treatment, and health systems in developing nations are being improved to advance both prevention and treatment. None of this could have been achieved without the work and commitment of caring people around the globe, including colleagues and friends who died when Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 crashed in July en route to the 20th International AIDS Conference in Melbourne.

But there is still so much to do. This year roughly 1.5 million individuals died of HIV-related illnesses, and over 2 million were newly infected.

UNAIDS launched new targets in 2014 – that by 2020, 90% of all people living with HIV will know their status, 90% of those diagnosed will receive sustained antiretroviral therapy, and 90% of those receiving antiretroviral therapy will have viral suppression. While these are ambitious goals, we believe they can be achieved and will remain committed to doing our part.

The theme of this year’s World AIDS Day is right on target: “Focus, Partner, Achieve: an AIDS-free generation.”  If we remain steadfast in our dedication to finding smart ways to work together, we will prevail.


Let’s join , & in fighting for an AIDS-free future for girls. More here:

Today I’m thankful for the new addition to our family & thinking about little ones everywhere. Happy cc:


Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, Mme. Secretary!

If you are venturing out this Black Friday and would like to give someone a special gift this holiday season,  here are a few ideas.  This weekend, Barnes & Noble will have some signed copies of Hard Choices available.


Go to their link below or click on the image to find a B & N near you.  N.B. Signed copies available only in stores.

Black Friday Weekend


The Greatest Offering Of Its Kind In The World - Signed Editions From 100 of Today's Biggest Authors. In Stores Only. Hurry! While Supplies Last.

It is possible that your Hillary friends already have Hard Choices – perhaps even signed.   In that case I strongly recommend another memoir from Hillary’s State Department.  The Dispensable Nation by Vali Nasr is excellent.  An advisor to Richard Holbrooke at the State Department and strong Hillary Clinton ally and supporter, Nasr provides his account of efforts by the Secretary of State and the Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan (SRAP) to bring peace to the region.  It is the book Hillary did not write and serves as an informative backstory to Hard Choices.

The Dispensable Nation: American Foreign Policy in Retreat

In the event you are thinking of something a little pricier, another cool idea would be to get a Nook, Kindle, or other tablet and pre-load it with e-copies of both of these.

Happy Thanksgiving, Mme. Secretary, to you and your beautiful, growing family.   Thank you all for everything you do.  Wishing you all a lovely day together!



Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends here, too.  All the best to you and yours.
