One on One with Hillary Clinton

The first Tavis Smiley Reports focuses on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as she completes her first year as America’s chief diplomat and looks ahead to the challenges of the next three years.

Tavis was granted exceptional access to Secretary Clinton and accompanied her on diplomatic missions abroad, to meetings on Capitol Hill and within the State Department itself, to give the American public a candid and incisive view of the inner workings of U.S. diplomacy and international relations.
