Statement from YDA president Rod Snyder:
"The Young Democrats of America express our overwhelming gratitude for the service, leadership, and statesmanship of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. As she exits her role as America’s top diplomat, we applaud her impressive record of helping to restore America’s image abroad, championing women’s rights, and using our nation’s diplomatic strength to protect the American people.
"As Secretary Clinton once again becomes a private citizen she does so as the most traveled Secretary of State in the history of the United States and one of the most admired people, male or female, in the world. For more than two decades Secretary Clinton, as First Lady, Senator, and as Secretary of State, has fought for peace, prosperity and opportunity throughout the U.S. and indeed the world. That example has inspired the work of so many Young Democrats across the country, and we are grateful for her years in public service."
