"I want to thank all of you for your efforts over the past six months. We’re nearly at the six-month mark, and it has been a high honor and privilege for me to work with the men and women of the State Department and USAID. Day after day, you prove your professionalism and your patriotism and your effectiveness. And I think that our country, and certainly the Obama Administration, is very lucky to have each and every one of you on the job. And I also appreciate the dedication and sacrifices that your families and your partners and loved ones make to serve our country by your side.She goes on to answer questions from many types of people on a range of issues, including some online questions as well.
