Bill Clinton wants us to Say Thank You to Hillary

As we welcome Hillary home, we couldn't be more proud of what she's accomplished or more humbled by her commitment to making our country and our world stronger, safer, and better.

Over the past four years, she's traveled to 112 countries, more than any other Secretary of State in our nation's history – and while this sometimes meant we saw her less often than we'd like, we're so grateful for the millions of lives she's touched and the change she's inspired across the globe.
