Nothing Was Off-Limits in Hillary Clinton's Candid Interview

Hillary Clinton touched on everything from President Obama to Benghazi to Monica Lewinsky in her interview with Diane Sawyer on Monday. Clinton's book Hard Choices hit shelves on Tuesday, and ahead of its release, she sat down with Sawyer to talk about personal challenges, public life, and, yes, running for president. One of the more buzzed-about moments came when she talked about being "dead broke" after the family's time in the White House. Legal fees left them with between $2.28 million and $10.6 million in debt in 2000, but thanks to appearances and Bill's speaking fees, they paid off the debt by 2004. For Clinton's take on womanhood, the presidency, and more, check out some can't-miss quotes from the full interview and watch the clips below.

  • On Lewinsky's Vanity Fair essay: "She is perfectly free to do that. She is, in my view, an American who gets to express herself however she chooses. But that is not something I spend a lot of time thinking about. . . . I hope that she is able to think about her future and construct a life that she finds meaning and satisfaction in."
  • On being "dead broke" after the White House: "You know, it was not easy."
  • On supporters urging her to run: "I am so appreciative of everyone who is encouraging me. I am grateful that they have confidence in me, but this is a really personal decision."
