The following message was sent from Hillary's mother, Dorothy Rodham.

Dear Friend,

I'm so proud of everything my daughter has accomplished and excited about what her future holds.

Her life is full of amazing achievements, and her story has inspired millions of people, especially young girls, to achieve their dreams, no matter what they are.

There's a wonderful book about her life I'd like to share with you. It's called Hillary Clinton: Dreams Taking Flight, and it is the perfect way to share my daughter's story with a child you want to inspire.

As you know, Hillary is still working hard to pay down the debt from her campaign, and I hope you'll take this opportunity to help her out. With your contribution of $50, you will receive a copy of Dreams Taking Flight with a specially designed Hillary Clinton bookplate.

And for that special person in your life, with a contribution of $250 or more, you will receive a book that's personally signed by Hillary to him or her by name.

Contribute to help pay down Hillary's debt, and we'll send you a copy of Hillary Clinton: Dreams Taking Flight.

I know you're just as proud as I am of everything my daughter has achieved, and I want to thank you for everything you've done to support her!

Thanks,
Dorothy

A Moment to Celebrate

President Clinton sent out the following message:

I am sure you have heard the exciting news: Hillary Clinton is nominated to be our next Secretary of State! This is great news for our country. She understands the challenges we face, and her experience and judgment will help President Obama restore America's reputation in the world and make our nation more secure.

Take a moment to celebrate this wonderful news by sending Hillary a message of congratulations.

This nomination would not have been possible without the hard work of everyone like you who has supported Hillary throughout the years. I know I speak for her when I say thank you for everything you have done for her.

Sincerely,
Bill Clinton

Hillary is Nominated to be Secretary of State

by Kate Sokolov
12/1/2008 3:09:25 PM

Hillary gave the following remarks this morning at a press conference announcing her nomination to be Secretary of State.

 

Mr. President-Elect, thank you for this honor. If confirmed, I will give this assignment, your administration and our country my all.

I also want to thank my fellow New Yorkers, who have for eight years given me the joy of a job I love, with the opportunity to work on issues I care about deeply, in a state that I cherish. And you've also helped prepare me well for this new role. After all, New Yorkers aren't afraid to speak their minds, and do so in every language.

Leaving the Senate is very difficult for me, but during the last few weeks, I thought often of our troops, serving bravely under difficult circumstances in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. I thought of those other Americans in our Foreign and Civil Services, working hard to promote and protect our interests around the world. And I thought of the daunting tasks ahead for our country: an economy that is reeling, a climate that is warming, and, as we saw with the horrible events in Mumbai, threats that are relentless.

The fate of our nation and the future of our children will be forged in the crucible of these global challenges. America cannot solve these crises without the world, and the world cannot solve them without America. By electing Barack Obama our next president, the American people have demanded not just a new direction at home but a new effort to renew America's standing in the world as a force for positive change.

We know our security, our values, and our interests cannot be protected and advanced by force alone, nor, indeed, by Americans alone. We must pursue vigorous diplomacy using all the tools we can muster to build a future with more partners and fewer adversaries, more opportunities and fewer dangers, for all who seek freedom, peace and prosperity.

America is a place founded on the idea that everyone should have the right to live up to his or her God-given potential, and it is that same ideal that must guide America's purpose in the world today. And while we are determined to defend our freedoms and liberties at all costs, we also reach out to the world again, seeking common cause and higher ground.

And so I believe the best way to continue serving my country is to join President-elect Obama, Vice President-elect Biden, the leaders here and the dedicated public servants of the State Department on behalf of our nation at this defining moment.

President Kennedy once said that engaging the world to meet the threats we face was the greatest adventure of our century.

Well, Mr. President-elect, I am proud to join you on what will be a difficult and exciting adventure in this new century. And may God bless you and all who serve with you and our great country.

We've Moved! HillPAC and Friends of Hillary have returned to downtown DC. We are now located at 1825 K Street NW, Suite 1000; Washington DC 20006.

Celebrating Glamour's "Women of the Year 2008:" Glamour magazine honored Hillary Clinton at this year's "Glamour Women of the Year 2008" Awards ceremony this week in New York. Entertainment Tonight caught up with Senator Clinton, America Ferrera and others. According to America Ferrera:

"This has been a wonderful year for women and I think, you know, in large part due to Senator Clinton and I'm always honored to be in her company and I'm very honored to be here today." Watch the segment here.

Glamour calls Hillary Clinton "The Trailblazer," writing: This year Hillary Clinton did something very rare for a politician: She won while losing. No, she didn't reach the White House—but she motivated a new generation of women of every political stripe. Read more here.

Busy in the Senate: Senator Clinton held a conference call Tuesday calling for a comprehensive new stimulus package to jumpstart the ailing economy.

In a letter to President Bush and Senate leaders, Senator Clinton outlined a series of measures that would protect those Americans hit hardest by the recession and put the nation on the road to recovery, including: extending unemployment insurance benefits, providing assistance to financially strapped cities and states to prevent cuts to critical services, and investments in infrastructure and alternative energy projects that could quickly provide hundreds of thousands of new jobs while laying the foundation for future economic expansion.

Today in Albany, Senator Clinton also called for a new national commitment to revitalizing the nation's infrastructure and expanding and improving mass transit systems.  Delivering remarks at the New York State Public Transit Industry Fall Conference, Senator Clinton urged support for a sweeping new plan to improve existing transit systems, expand public transportation to areas that currently have limited access, and overhaul the process by which public transit is planned and financed. 

Transitioning: HillPAC's Executive Director and Social Secretary during the Clinton Administration, Capricia Marshall, appeared frequently on TV this week discussing the First Family transition. Watch her discuss the transition with Wolf Blitzer here.

206 Votes in Minnesota: Senator Clinton e-mailed her supporters today re-emphasizing the importance of the recount in Minnesota and sending Al Franken to the Senate:

Just 206 votes. That's the difference separating Al Franken and Norm Coleman in the Minnesota Senate race -- 206 votes out of about 3 million cast.
In the coming days, Minnesota officials will carefully count every vote to make sure they get the most accurate count possible…

This time we're ready. The Franken Campaign is working hard to make sure every vote is counted -- but they need our help…

Help make sure this important election is decided fairly -- contribute today to Al Franken's campaign.

Virginia 2009: Clinton Campaign Chairman Terry McAuliffe announced this week that he would explore the opportunity of running for Virginia Governor in 2009. Terry's wife, Dorothy, sent the following email yesterday:

As you may know, Terry's been contemplating a run for governor of Virginia for some time now. And this week, he officially kicked off a two-month long process of touring the Commonwealth in order to initiate a conversation with fellow Virginians.

He'll make a final decision about whether to run for governor in early January.

That decision will be based in large part on what kind of enthusiasm is out there for his candidacy.

Honoring Our Veterans: Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton made the following statement marking Veterans Day:

"Today I join all Americans in honoring the brave men and women who have worn the uniform in service to our nation. These men and women have given so much for all of us. We owe them our freedom, our respect, and our gratitude demonstrated in our words and deeds. Veterans are veterans for life and they and their families deserve the support and services they have earned. That is why I have fought to improve veterans health care and to streamline the benefits claim process, and why I will continue to be a champion for veterans in the Senate. We must serve them as they have served all of us. Let us pay our respect today as we recommit ourselves to this solemn duty every day."

"These men and women are the best this nation has to offer, and they deserve to be treated as the best. We need to be there with open arms when our veterans need our support, and we must continue to stand with them over the years.  For all of these reasons, I continue to work on a variety of initiatives, including health care and beyond, to support and honor our veterans and their loved ones."

Hurry! Limited Edition DVDs Available: Contribute $50 or more today and we will send you a special keepsake: A DVD of with Hillary and President Clinton's historic speeches in Denver, the inspiring video that introduced Hillary, and a special message recorded just for you.

A Race Not Yet Decided

by Kate Sokolov

Dear Friend,

Just 206 votes. That's the difference separating Al Franken and Norm Coleman in the Minnesota Senate race -- 206 votes out of about 3 million cast.

In the coming days, Minnesota officials will carefully count every vote to make sure they get the most accurate count possible. But once again, Republicans want to interfere any way they can with the vote-counting. They're setting up legal challenges and questioning the voting officials' integrity.

This time we're ready. The Franken Campaign is working hard to make sure every vote is counted -- but they need our help. Al Franken needs to keep his campaign active to stop the Republican attacks and make Minnesotans' voices are heard.

Help make sure this important election is decided fairly -- contribute today to Al Franken's campaign.

The people of Minnesota have spoken, and I don't know who will end up winning the final count. But I do know that if Republicans succeed in stopping this count prematurely, we'll lose the chance at having a great fighter for Minnesota's families join me in the Senate.

Al Franken is a good friend who will give us a stronger and more effective Democratic majority in Congress. It's up to us to make sure he has what he needs to fight back against Republican attacks and make sure every vote is counted.

Help make sure every vote in Minnesota counts -- contribute right now to the Franken Campaign!

I know I can count on you to help my friend Al Franken. Thank you for your hard work.

Sincerely,
Hillary
