QUESTION: Our president Cory Aquino just passed away, would you care to tell us your thoughts about Cory Aquino?
SECRETARY CLINTON: Oh she did? I didn't know that. Oh I am so, so sorry. I wrote her a note a few weeks ago when I heard that she was so sick. I admired her greatly, she was a woman of courage who loved her country. She and her family sacrificed so much to try to give the people of the Philippines a better future and I think that she is an inspiration, not only to the Philippines but to people everywhere who believe in the right values and a positive future.
