Secretary of State Hillary Clinton celebrated the passage of landmark health care reform Monday, in a rare moment for a woman who was once one of the leading voices on the issue.
"If you ever doubt the resolve of President Obama to stay with a job, look at what we got done for the United States last night when it came to passing quality affordable health care for everyone," Clinton said during a speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
During her husband's presidential administration in the 1990s, Clinton tried and failed to bring about sweeping health care reform.
In her own presidential campaign from 2007 to 2008, then Senator Clinton made health care a signature issue. She vowed to fight for comprehensive health care coverage.
But as Secretary of State, she avoids weighing in on internal U.S. politics - and became notably absent on the issue.
Aside from the one remark on health care, Clinton's speech to AIPAC on Monday focused entirely on foreign policy.
