Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, said that Joe Biden is made for this moment.

“I think that the moment and the man are made for each other,” Clinton said.

Clinton said she was “relieved and grateful” to be able to attend inauguration. 

“I was so relieved and grateful that we were able to celebrate the transfer of power in a peaceful way, which has been a hallmark of our country,” Clinton said. “It meant a great deal to so many Americans to see the ceremony conducted on the platform where just a few weeks ago marauders and terrorists had been attempting to stop democracy, so it really lifted my heart.”

Talking further about why Biden is the right leader for the moment, Clinton said “he brings a deep sense of empathy, rising out of his own personal experiences. But it’s a clear part of his character to listen to people, to people, try to lift people up. And I think our country right now needs a caring, compassionate, empathetic leader. And Joe Biden is all of that.”

On Kamala Harris becoming a historic vice president, Clinton said she was “thrilled.” 

“But I was also delighted because she’s a friend of mine. I am convinced she’s going to be a terrific partner to Joe Biden and, you know, really put all of her experience and the expertise to work on behalf of the American people. I don’t think we could ask for anything more,” she said.
