I deeply respect and appreciate all of the admiration and respect and gratitude for my mother’s service. As a daughter, I very much want her to make the right choice for herself. I know that will be the right choice for our country, and I’ll support her in whatever she chooses to do.
Chelsea Clinton • Offering a nice non-committal non-answer answer on what she thinks her mom, Hillary Clinton, will do regarding a 2016 presidential run. The younger Clinton, who currently works as an NBC correspondent, also noted that she may consider political aspirations in her future.

We’ll take steps to find out who did this, and if they’re within the boundaries of the United States, we’ll prosecute them.
L.A. Police Chief Charlie Beck • Discussing the Russian website that leaked much of his financial info, along with the alleged personal info of a number of major celebrities, such as Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Beyonce and Jay-Z. Why he was included in such company, he’s not 100 percent sure, but he assumes his association with the Christopher Dorner case played a role.

Hillary Clinton’s Resignation Letter. [via]

Dear Mr. President:
I hereby resign as the 67th Secretary of State, effective upon the appointment of my successor. 
It has been an honor to serve in your administration and to represent our country around the world. I am proud of what we accomplished together on behalf of the American people and in pursuit of our interests and values. And I am more convinced than ever in the strength and staying power of America’s global leadership and our capacity to be a force for good in the world.
It has been a privilege to lead such a dedicated and skilled team of Foreign Service Officers and Civil Servants at the State Department and USAID. I am deeply grateful for their service and sacrifice on behalf of the country they love.
On a personal note, it has been a pleasure to work with you and your team. Thank you, Mr. President, for your friendship, and for the opportunity to serve in your Cabinet. 
With gratitude and warm regards, I am
Sincerely yours,
Hillary Rodham Clinton


We realize that the former Secretary is a politician by trade, and as such not everyone is going to agree with her views, or even be inclined to view her favorably. What isn’t in any dispute, however: she just finished a run as probably the the most recognizable and high-profile Secretary of State in our modern American era, and may still have one big political decision ahead of her. Former Senator John Kerry was sworn in as the new Secretary today, bringing Clinton’s four-year tenure to an end.

Look, if we had a [Hillary] Clinton presidency, if we had Erskine Bowles as Chief of Staff of the White House or President of the United States, I think we would have fixed this fiscal mess by now. That’s not the kind of presidency we’re dealing with right now.
Rep. Paul Ryan • Offering (on this morning’s Meet the Press) an interesting take on what he thinks of the Obama administration … essentially, Obama is no Hillary Clinton.

Video: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.S. Senator Ron Johnson clash over Benghazi consulate attack (via Talking Points Memo)

"With all due respect, we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of some guys out on a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.” Damn, Hill brought her A game.

She’s talking to staff, she is taking paper at home. She sounds terrific. She’s looking forward to coming back next week.
Victoria Nuland, spokesperson for Sec. Hillary Clinton • Discussing the current condition of the outgoing Secretary of State, less than 24 hours after Secretary Clinton first made headlines when several outlets inaccurately reported that she had been discharged and readmitted to the hospital. Clinton was hospitalized earlier this week to receive treatment for a blood clot that formed after she suffered a concussion last month. source

There was something of a snafu amongst media networks earlier today, when it was incorrectly reported that Secretary of State Clinton had been released from hospital care. Thankfully for everyone, most of all Secretary Clinton herself, it only took a few more hours for her release to truly occur.
