"It’s been great. It’s been bittersweet, nostalgic, all the things you would expect"

Hillary Clinton on final trip with POTUS per pool: “It’s been great. It’s been bittersweet, nostalgic, all the things you would expect.”





____ On the porch of the house of Myanmar’s opposition leader, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, Mr. Obama gave Mrs. Clinton a shout-out.

“Where did Hillary go?” he suddenly asked as he interrupted his remarks about Myanmar’s transition from military rule. “Where is she?”

She caught his attention from the audience. “There she is,” he said to applause.

“I could not be more grateful,” he went on, “not only for your service, Hillary, but also for the powerful message that you and Aung San Suu Kyi send about the importance of women — and men — everywhere embracing and promoting democratic values and human rights.”

. . . as the end drew near, the past and future were on the minds of both. Mr. Obama took Mrs. Clinton and her entourage to lunch at the United States Embassy in Yangon, Myanmar, on Monday to thank them for their work.

Then during the Air Force One flight to Phnom Penh that night, an official said, the two huddled alone for an hour, reminiscing about the last four years — and talking about what the next may bring.

10. I wish she would stay on

But I understand why she doesn't want to. She needs a break.

16. I am so happy that Myanmar is moving towards democracy.

A few years ago it had one of the worst governments in the world. But it is changing.

Thanks to Obama and Clinton for their contribution to that.
