“As we welcome Hillary home, we couldn’t be more proud of what she’s accomplished or more humbled by her commitment to making our country and our world stronger, safer, and better.
“Over the past four years, she’s traveled to 112 countries, more than any other Secretary of State in our nation’s history – and while this sometimes meant we saw her less often than we’d like, we’re so grateful for the millions of lives she’s touched and the change she’s inspired across the globe.
“So as she steps down as Secretary of State, we hope you’ll join us in thanking Hillary for all she’s done.
“Through her tireless service, she has strengthened America’s relationships with the world – from our closest allies to emerging powers to developing nations.
“She’s transformed the way we practice diplomacy and taken advantage of global trends – engaging directly with people, embracing technology, and championing economics, education, and energy to improve lives and strengthen communities around the world.
“As First Lady, U.S. Senator, and Secretary of State, she has dedicated herself to service, and to giving more people in more places, particularly women and girls, the opportunities to live their dreams.
“She inspires us every day – and we hope she inspires you, too.”
