Washington, Feb.18 (ANI): US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has revealed that she was taken aback when President Barack Obama offered her the post of his chief diplomat.
I didn”t expect to end up working for the man who defeated me in last year’’s Democratic primaries, the Washington Times quoted, Clinton, as saying.
Addressing a gathering of civil society leaders in Jakarta, she said: In elections, there are winners and losers, and the losers should acknowledge their defeat and either move on, or try to bring about change by other peaceful means.
Earlier, Clinton received a warm welcome at Jakarta International Airport, where 44 children from an elementary school that Obama attended in the late 1960s, sang a folk song while waving American and Indonesian flags.
Hundreds of people lined up at both sides of her motorcade route to greet her. (ANI)
