Once again Hillary sees a way forward.

Opinion | Hillary Clinton: Mueller documented a serious crime against all Americans. Here’s how to respond.

April 24 at 4:44 PM


Hillary Clinton was the 2016 Democratic nominee for president. Our election was corrupted, our democracy assaulted, our sovereignty and security violated. This is the definitive conclusion of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report. It documents a serious crime against the American people.The debate about how to respond to Russia’s “sweeping and systematic” attack — and how to hold President Trump accountable for obstructing the investigation and possibly breaking the law — has been reduced to a false choice: immediate impeachment or nothing. History suggests there’s a better way to think about the choices ahead.

Obviously, this is personal for me, and some may say I’m not the right messenger. But my perspective is not just that of a former candidate and target of the Russian plot. I am also a former senator and secretary of state who served during much of Vladi­mir Putin’s ascent, sat across the table from him and knows firsthand that he seeks to weaken our country.

I am also someone who, by a strange twist of fate, was a young staff attorney on the House Judiciary Committee’s Watergate impeachment inquiry in 1974, as well as first lady during the impeachment process that began in 1998. And I was a senator for New York after 9/11, when Congress had to respond to an attack on our country. Each of these experiences offers important lessons for how we should proceed today.

Four former U.S. secretaries of state shared a stage at Woolsey Hall on April 18 and offered their insights on the state of democracy both at home and abroad.

Madeleine Albright, Condoleeza Rice, Hillary Clinton ’73 J.D., and John Kerry ’66 B.A. — four of the nation’s last six chief diplomats — had a nuanced conversation, which Kerry moderated, that touched on a range of issues, including the degree to which political polarization has affected America’s ability to advance its interests, protect human rights, and promote democracy across the globe.

The discussion was part of “Challenges to Democracy at Home and Abroad,” a two-day conference hosted by the Kerry Initiative at the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, an interdisciplinary program that Kerry founded in 2017 to tackle pressing global challenges through teaching, research, and international dialogue. The conference brought together political leaders, journalists, and scholars to approach the problems facing democracy from a variety of angles.

Bill, Hillary Clinton Share Eagles’ Anecdote During Tour Stop In Philadelphia

April 13, 2019 at 10:30 pm

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Former President Bill Clinton and former and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were in Philadelphia Saturday night as part of their North American speaking tour. The couple spoke at The Met Philly on Broad Street. Before an audience of ticket-buyers, the democratic stalwarts spoke about politics and the Super Bowl winning Eagles.

“Our son-in-law, who we adore, and his wonderful mother who is here tonight, are from Philadelphia,” said Hillary Clinton. “I think the very first onesie that either of our grandchildren first put on was an Eagles, and after they learned how to say mommy and daddy, before they learned to say grandma and pop pop, they were ‘Fly Eagles, Fly.’ So, we had to be here.”

The Clintons shared other stories and anecdotes from their time in public service.

Hillary was the final speaker at the 10th annual Women in the World Summit on Friday, April 12.  She was interviewed by Fareed Zakaria.

Hillary Clinton: ‘Given the chance, many women will govern and lead differently’

In a conversation that had the audience cheering her on, the former secretary of state talked to Fareed Zakaria about the mess we’re in — and how women can help us get out of it.

Hillary Clinton was not going to pick a Democratic favorite.

“I am absolutely delighted to see this incredibly diverse field, and especially to have more than one woman running for President of the United States,” said the former secretary of state, four years to the day since launching her own presidential campaign. In a surprise interview with CNN host and newspaper columnist Fareed Zakaria that concluded the 10th annual Women in the World Summit in New York, Clinton would, however, offer a little advice to the 18 Democrats who have announced so far.

“I think you really have to do two things simultaneously, and it’s challenging,” she said.

First, she said, you have to present what it is that you want to do: “What is your vision? What is your hope for our country? How do you see the future? What are you going to propose that will make a difference in the lives of Americans and maintain the values, the ideals, of America in a very complex world?”

At the same time, she continued, you also have to be able to counter “the diversion and distraction that we see, unfortunately, working by the current incumbent in the White House. So you have to do that balancing act, and I think that we have excellent candidates who are demonstrating their ability to do that.”
