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 led a panel discussion today. Look for her around the 2 hour 20 minute mark.

Role Reversal

‘Brain Sex With Hillary Clinton’

The former senator and secretary of state led a panel discussion of women journalists reporting from countries led by strong men with crazy ideas. She knew just what to ask.

NEW YORK—When Hillary Clinton closed a lively panel of women journalists covering authoritarian regimes in Russia, China, Turkey, and Georgia at the ninth annual Women in the World Summit in New York, Tina Brown, the event founder, summed it up with a new career suggestion for the former presidential candidate. “That was amazing, like brain sex. You’ve found your next career, Hillary,” she said, suggesting Clinton host a television talk show. “Brain Sex with Hillary Clinton.”

It was a rare treat to see Clinton on the other side of microphone, asking tough questions and leading a super smart discussion about a topic she clearly knows all too well: how to deal with egomaniacal men. She kept her own opinions largely to herself save a few well-timed comments and choice digs that drew raucous applause.

Samantha Bee introduced her and Nicholas Kristof conducted the interview when Hillary Clinton spoke at the Women in the World Summit at Lincoln Center on Thursday.

No transcript yet, but this.  Hillary called for airstrikes in Syria.  This event occurred before tonight’s airstrikes. Please note that she did not make this call today. She was referring to a policy she had advocated for a very long time while she was Secretary of State and continued to advocate afterwards, i.e. not a new stance for her  – rather –  a longstanding one that she reiterated today before the strikes took place.

Hillary Clinton To Headline Lincoln Center ‘Women In The World’ Summit

Hillary Clinton will be interviewed live by New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof for the annual Women in the World Summit.


Hillary Clinton To Headline Lincoln Center 'Women In The World' Summit

NEW YORK CITY, NY — Hillary Clinton will be in New York City next week, but not to announce her rumored interest in this year’s mayoral race. The former New York Senator and Secretary of State will be speaking at Lincoln Center for the eight annual Women in the World Summit.

Clinton will headline the summit’s April 6 programming when she is interviewed live by New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof at Lincoln Center’s David Koch Theater, according to the summit’s website. There’s no indication as to which topics the conversation between Clinton and Kristof will cover, but it’s safe to say politics and women’s issues will likely dominate the discussion.

Since Clinton’s shocking loss to Donald Trump in last year’s presidential election the former first lady has kept a low profile, but has become more politically active recently. During a speech on St. Patrick’s day Clinton said the was “ready to come out of the woods,” alluding to a viral photo of Clinton hiking near her Chappaqua home after the election defeat, reported the New York Times.

Months, years really, of speculation were about to end as April began.  The first solid indication was Karen Finney’s Facebook announcement that she had joined Hillary’s team.  Until that day, all of Hillary’s hires were reported by “unnamed sources.”  Karen was the first to announce it directly with a Facebook share.  April 12 was “Declaration Day!”

Hillary announced via Twitter (she had been tweeting energetically for months), a revived HillaryClinton.com website, and a Youtube video that played on network and cable TV as the suspense finally lifted.  She also revived her Facebook account.

The Hillary team immediately hit the road for Iowa and it was game on!  (Awww … this little baby at a road stop!)

In Iowa, she took advantage of every opportunity to meet people. Iowans greeted her enthusiastically.

There were mixed reviews of her logo at the beginning. Since then, we have seen the genius of that H’s adaptability.

On April 15, Hillary announced her resignation from the Clinton Foundation.  Time Magazine once again named her among the 100 most influential people.

And the attacks from the Republicans began.  Carly Fiorina was the first to launch a shot over the bow. We retaliated here.

Hillary’s second week on the trail took her to New Hampshire.

A wall of campaign buttons in the “early state.”

At Georgetown University she presented the Hillary Rodham Clinton Award for Advancing Women in Peace to former United Nations Envoy for Afghanistan Staffan de Mistura.

Bernard-Henri Levy published a wonderful tribute to her.  I am his longtime fan, and he is hers!  (One reason I like him so much.)  Martha Stewart said she is for “the lady that is running.”  She made it clear that she was not referring to Fiorina.

Hillary’s platform was coming together with equal pay, fair pay, college-affordability, women’s rights, and LGBT rights among the issues she addressed early and often.  She addressed reform of the criminal justice system in a major speech at the David N. Dinkins Leadership and Public Policy Forum  at Columbia University in late April.

On the last day of April, she sent a tweet to welcome to Bernie Sanders to the race.

I agree with Bernie. Focus must be on helping America’s middle class. GOP would hold them back. I welcome him to the race. –H

Lucky people who had tickets for today!

Hillary has been at almost every one of these summits.  She missed  one once when she was Secretary of State and traveling, but she has been at all the others.  This time it was just a wee bit different because she was there not as cabinet member, nor as a private citizen, but as a presidential candidate.  You can imagine the excitement in the hall.

Hillary Clinton fired up her 2016 presidential campaign with a sweeping, estrogen-packed speech at the Women in the World Summit in New York City on Thursday, telling the crowd at Lincoln Center, “There has never been a better time in history to be born female.”

An added treat this year was the an appearance by Dame Helen Mirren, another of my very favorite human beings on earth.  Dame Helen, who happens to  be engaged  in the Broadway production The Audience where she portrays Her Royal Highness,  Queen Elizabeth II, participated in a conversation with Tina Brown and appears to have turned things a bit topsy-turvy!

I believe this is the video they showed. She had great control, poise and presence of mind even then.
