Hillary Talks About Why She Joined the Obama Administration (Video)

Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton appeared on the George Stephanopoulos show this morning. In the clip below, Hillary answers a question about her decision to take the job of Secretary of State.

"And, you know, ultimately it came down to my feeling that, number one, when your president asks you to do something for your country, you really need a good reason not to do it.

And finally, I looked around our world and I thought, you know, we are in just so many deep holes that everybody had better grab a shovel and start digging out."
