Transcript: Interview With Hillary Clinton

Clinton: No. No. No, it didn't, no that isn't all what happened. Uh, but you know, I … I have long since learned that, uh … you know, never complain, never explain, just keep going. Um, you know, I have … I have been blessed to, uh … be in the center of, um … making decisions for a country that I love and that I've devoted most of my life to serving. And so it's … it's hard to, uh … do what I've done without being around a lot of powerful men. So I'm … I'm very used to that and very much, uh … grateful for the chance to play a small part.

CM: So what did happen in Africa?

Clinton: (Laughs).

CM: What was that?

Clinton: Oh, it was a, um … it was an unfortunate choice of words by the young man who asked me the question. CM: Did it set off something in you? That did not please you.

Clinton: Well, you know, when you're on a trip to try to elevate women, and, um … you know, that … that … just didn't uh, hit me the right way. I really felt like, you know, we needed to make it clear.

CM: You've been asked several times about your reaction to the President winning the Nobel Peace Prize. And I wanted to ask you about your husband's reaction, because there's been so much written about his being frustrated and furious.

Clinton: Oh, ridiculous. You know, just ridiculous. Unbelievable. Look, I think it's great that our President has been recognized like this. And as the President said, he was very surprised and very humbled, and it was a call to action. Everybody who has ever been in that job knows that you just have to get up every day and keep working at it. And the President understands that completely. But what a great recognition of what he's trying to do in the world.

CM: Well, it's not Iowa, but I thank you very much for sitting with us here in Moscow. It's been a pleasure, as always.

Clinton: (Laughs). Thank you. Good to see you.

CM: Good to see you.
