"I don't want to paint with a broad brush every immigrant is this, every African-American is that, every, you know, other person with different religious beliefs or whatever". We have confused everybody in the world, including ourselves.
"The work would be work that I feel very well prepared for, having been in the Senate for eight years, having been a diplomat in the State Department", she continued.
Clinton went on to say that "there's going to be so much work to be done" after a Democrat "hopefully" wins the next presidential election.
"I'm not even going to think about it until we get through this November 6th election about what's going to happen after that", she added.
Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, announced this month that they will be embarking on a 13-city tour over the next year, hosting discussions about current events and politics across the country.

"Will you be doing any of that lifting?" Michael Avenatti, who became a prominent figure in the media as the lawyer for adult film actress Stormy Daniels, has repeatedly said he is interested in running. Cory Booker (D., N.J.) and former Vice President Joe Biden. Kamala Harris (D., Calif), Sen.

"She will always be a victor and I'll always be with her", said Shalala, introducing Clinton to a room full of 200 Democratic donors in Miami. And why not - the racially loaded quip was unscripted and seemed far more genuine than Clinton's previous attempts at humor, from reacting to the murder of Libya's ruler with "We came, we saw, he died!" in 2011 to the cringe-worthy "How about Pokemon Go-to-the-polls?" during the 2016 campaign.
