During a St. Patrick’s Day speech, Hillary Clinton said that she was “ready to come out of the woods” to help a divided America work toward a better future.
“I’m like a lot of my friends right now, I have a hard time watching the news,” Clinton told the Society of Irish Women in Pennsylvania.
“What can we do to try to bring people together and to try to find that common ground, even higher ground, sister, so that we listen to each other again and we know that we can make a difference? I’m not sure it will come out of Washington yet, but I think it can come out of Scranton. Let’s find ways to do that,” she added.
“I am ready to come out of the woods and to help shine a light on what is already happening around kitchen tables, at dinners like this, to help draw strength that will enable everybody to keep going,” she said, referencing a picture of her taking a walk in the woods just a couple days after her loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
Clinton is scheduled to give several more speeches in the coming months, including one to her alma mater, Wellesley College in Massachusetts, in May.
