So Long, Farewell Hillary Clinton

A final meeting with the president. A farewell address to the State Department staff.

Dear Mr. President:

I hereby resign as the 67th Secretary of State, effective upon the appointment of my successor.

It has been an honor to serve in your administration and to represent our country around the world. I am proud of what we accomplished together on behalf of the American people and in pursuit of our interests and values. And I am more convinced than ever in the strength and staying power of America’s global leadership and our capacity to be a force for good in the world.

It has been a privilege to lead such a dedicated and skilled team of Foreign Service Officers and Civil Servants at the State Department and USAID. I am deeply grateful for their service and sacrifice on behalf of the country they love.

On a personal note, it has been a pleasure to work with you and your team. Thank you, Mr. President, for your friendship, and for the opportunity to serve in your Cabinet.

With gratitude and warm regards, I am

Sincerely yours,

Hillary Rodham Clinton
