Hillary Clinton TIME cover

“I think I was struck by my early travels, where one of the most common questions I kept being asked, especially in the audience of young people at universities and elsewhere, is: How could you work with President Obama? You ran against him. Because still in democracies, even ones that we think of as fairly mature, that was just a totally bizarre idea that two people who were political foes could ever end up working together. … And my answer always was: Yes, I mean, we ran hard against each other. He tried to beat me, I tried to beat him. But he won, then he asked me to work for him. And I said yes because we both love our country. So I think that that message resonated with a lot of people and, again, I would stress particularly young people.”

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on working alongside her former opponent, Barack Obama, in Washington. This quote is just one tidbit of the Q&A — mostly about foreign policy — that Hillary did with TIME‘s editor-in-chief. As I read their conversation, I was blown away by her intelligence and intellect. I highly, highly recommend you read it, too!  [TIME]
