Hillary Clinton proud of diplomatic accomplishments

WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton writes in new excerpts from her forthcoming book that she wishes she could go back and reconsider some of her past decisions but she is "proud of what we accomplished" during her time as secretary of state.

Clinton, a potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, writes in an author's note released Tuesday that her four years running the State Department for President Barack Obama taught her about the United States' "exceptional strengths and what it will take for us to compete and thrive at home and abroad."

"As is usually the case with the benefit of hindsight, I wish we could go back and revisit certain choices. But I'm proud of what we accomplished," Clinton writes. "This century began traumatically for our country, with the terrorist attacks on 9/11, the long wars that followed, and the Great Recession. We needed to do better, and I believe we did."

Hard Choices, Clinton's book about her time at the State Department, will be released June 10. The book arrives as the former first lady considers another White House campaign and as Republicans seek to question her handling of the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, and other decisions on her watch.

In the excerpts, Clinton writes that she didn't write the book for followers of "Washington's long-running soap opera," but Americans and people everywhere who are trying to make sense of a rapidly changing world.
