Hillary Clinton Quits

Hillary Clinton bid an emotional farewell to the State Department on Friday as she stepped down from her post as America’s top diplomat to become a private citizen for the first time in decades.


The US Secretary of State addressed a cheering crowd of staff in Washington, telling them that while the world remains “very complex and even dangerous” she was “more optimistic today than I was when I stood here four years ago.”

“I’m proud of the work we have done to elevate diplomacy and development, to serve the nation we all love, to understand the challenges, the threats and the opportunities that the United States faces,” she said.

She poked gentle fun at the punishing schedule she has kept for the last four years., thanking the travelling companions who joined her in flying nearly a million miles on visits to 112 countries.
