Hillary Rodham Clinton will write secretary of State memoir


Hillary Rodham Clinton said in an interview Tuesday that she will write another memoir after leaving her post as secretary of State. She was responding to a question from Sahara Sawar, a British Pakistani from Dubai.

In an awkwardly named “Global Townterview,” Clinton, who was in Washington, responded to questions from around the world via video linkups. Clinton has participated in almost 60 Global Townterviews during her four-year tenure at the State Department.

Friday will be Clinton’s final day as secretary of State. She can then get right to work on her book.


Clinton was asked if she’d write a memoir about her time in the State Department, and if, like Madeline Albright, she would include her regrets. Clinton addressed the regrets issue first, mentioning the loss of lives in Beghazi, Libya, and unresolved conflicts in the Congo and Syria.

“But I take away far more positive memories. And yes, I will write a memoir,” she said. “I don’t know what I’ll say in it yet, but – (laughter) – I’ll have a chance to go into greater detail on this and other matters.”

Clinton has put fingers to keyboard before -- she is also the author of “It Takes a Village” (1996) and the memoir “Living History” (2003).

Apart from dedicating herself to writing a book, it is possible that Clinton may consider running for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.
