Between talks, the TED hosts announced a surprise guest: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton!  Sec. Clinton said that “the rights and roles of women and girls are a central tenet of American foreign policy.”  Women’s rights, she noted, are “not just a moral or humanitarian or fairness issue.  It’s a security and prosperity and peace issue… in the vital interest of the United States of America.”

She also took a moment to share her sadness at the passing of Elizabeth Edwards, praising her “fierce intelligence, passion, and sense of purpose.”
