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 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.”

Hillary Clinton: Julian Assange Must ‘Answer for What He Has Done’

Stephen Yang/Reuters

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Julian Assange must “answer for what he has done” after the WikiLeaks founder was arrested on Thursday. At an event in New York, Clinton reportedly said that the charges against Assange make it clear that he is being punished for hacking into a “military computer to steal information from the United States government,” rather than for being a journalist. The Guardian reports Clinton also noted that Assange faces other criminal charges. “Look, I’ll wait and see what happens with the charges and how it proceeds, but he skipped bail in the UK,” she said. “The bottom line is he has to answer for what he has done, at least as it’s been charged.”

Hillary Rodham Clinton

Hillary Rodham Clinton to address ASMSA graduates at 2019 commencement

Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will deliver the keynote address to the Class of 2019 at the Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts commencement at 2 p.m., May 25, at the Hot Springs Convention Center.

“As one of the earliest advocates for the creation of ASMSA, I cannot imagine a better individual to challenge and inspire our twenty-fifth class of graduates as they enter the next phase of their educational journey.  Hillary Rodham Clinton has enjoyed a distinguished career on state, national, and global stages.  In every role, she has been an advocate for youth,” noted ASMSA Director Corey Alderdice. “At ASMSA, we are committed to addressing the needs of students throughout Arkansas, providing young people with resources to bring distinction to our state, and inspire these emerging leaders to embrace their role in a global society.  Secretary Clinton paved the way for the more than 2,500 graduates who have benefitted from ASMSA, and we are honored to have her be a part of our commencement celebration.”

Clinton has served as U.S. Secretary of State, a Senator from New York, First Lady of the United States, First Lady of Arkansas, a practicing lawyer and law professor, and an activist and volunteer for children advocacy groups and health initiatives among other policy issues.

She twice ran for president, first in 2008 against then-Sen. Barack Obama and again in 2016 when she became the first woman to earn a major party’s nomination for president by winning the Democratic Party’s bid.

Public service has been a mainstay of Clinton’s career since her early college days at Wellesley College in Wellesley, Mass., where she became involved with social justice activism, and at Yale Law School.
