From Colombia to South Africa, it seems like everywhere Hillary Clinton goes these days, she has a smile on her face – even when she's walking the dogs.

The U.S. Secretary of State was spotted flashing an ear-to-ear grin while out with the family dogs and husband Bill Clinton in East Hampton, N.Y., on Tuesday.

Sporting shades and an oversized hat, Hillary was nearly unrecognizable, while Bill showed off his presidential smile as he tried to keep up with chocolate Labrador Seamus.

Chelsea Clinton Eases Her View on Running for Office

Originally posted 08/15/2012 11:15AM

Chelsea Clinton might have political pedigree in the form of dad, former President Bill Clinton, and mom, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, but so far she's declined to step into the public-service arena herself – until now.

Speaking to Vogue in its September issue about possibly diving into politics, she reversed her usual stance, answering, "I don't know," when asked if she'd consider a political career.

"Before my mom's campaign I would have said no," Clinton, 32, said about her mom's unsuccessful 2008 presidential bid. "Not because it was something I had thought a lot about, but because people have been asking me that my whole life."

"And now I don't know," she continued. "I mean, I have voted in every election that I have been qualified to vote in since I turned 18."

Hillary Clinton's Mom, Dorothy Rodham, Dies at 92

Originally posted 11/01/2011 11:15AM

Hillary Clinton's mother, Dorothy Rodham, died just after midnight Tuesday in Washington, D.C., according to a statement from the Clinton family. She was 92.

Secretary of State Clinton announced she was canceling a trip to Istanbul and London Monday to stay with her ailing mother. No medical information was disclosed.

Born in Chicago, Dorothy Rodham was raised by her grandparents in California. Later in life, she moved to Arkansas to be closer to the Clintons, and she became involved in charity work, focusing on organizations that help neglected and abused children.

"Her story was a quintessentially American one, largely because she wrote it herself," the family statement reads. "She overcame abandonment and hardship as a young girl to become the remarkable woman she was – a warm, generous and strong woman; an intellectual; a woman who told a great joke and always got the joke; an extraordinary friend and, most of all, a loving wife, mother and grandmother."

Talk about your political flip-flops.

Once known for his love of barbecue and impromptu stops at McDonald's, former President Bill Clinton has radically changed his diet, dropped weight and improved his health.

What a difference a quadruple bypass makes.

The former junk food lover, who turned 65 on Friday, now calls himself a vegan, shunning meat, eggs, dairy and almost all oil.

"I like the vegetables, the fruits, the beans, the stuff I eat now," Clinton tells CNN.

Originally posted 05/02/2011 08:00AM

Before he announced to the nation that Osama bin Laden had been killed in a strategic raid by American Special Forces, President Obama personally briefed his predecessors, George W. Bush, who launched the War on Terror during his tenure in office, and President Bill Clinton.

Said former President Bush in a statement: "This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done."

Clinton's statement said: "This is a profoundly important moment not just for the families of those who lost their lives on 9/11 and in al-Qaida's other attacks but for people all over the world who want to build a common future of peace, freedom, and cooperation for our children. I congratulate the President, the National Security team and the members of our armed forces on bringing Osama bin Laden to justice after more than a decade of murderous al-Qaida attacks."
