At one point during her testimony today on Capitol Hill, Hillary Clinton choked up, her voice cracking from emotion as she spoke.
“For me, this is not just a matter of policy,” she said. “It’s personal. I stood next to President Obama as the marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at Andrews. I put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the sons and daughters, and the wives left alone to raise their children.”
“It has been one of the great honors of my life,” Clinton added, “to lead the men and women of the State department and USAID.”
