Hillary Clinton Jokes at Her Own Expense for Harry Reid's Retirement

“This is not exactly the speech at the Capitol I hoped to be giving."

— -- Hillary Clinton didn’t shy away from some dark humor in her opening remarks at retiring Sen. Harry Reid’s tribute and portrait unveiling today.

“This is not exactly the speech at the Capitol I hoped to be giving after the election,” she said. “But after a few weeks of taking selfies in the woods, I thought it would be a good idea to come out. And I'm very grateful to Harry for inviting me to be a part of this celebration.”

Reid, the Senate minority leader from Nevada, is retiring from Congress this year and was honored with a portrait in the Kennedy Caucus Room in the Russell Senate Office Building.
