By the end of the week, Hillary Clinton will no longer be Secretary of State. Before saying goodbye, she sat down for a rare joint interview the President Obama on "60 Minutes," in which the pair exchanged compliments and discussed the past four years.
Calling the relationship between Obama and Clinton "extraordinary" and "unique" on Starting Point this morning, Rep. Steve Israel says that the CBS interview shows "two former competitors who figured out how to put their differences aside, learn how to govern, move on and take this country forward."
Rep. Israel also responds to Rep. Paul Ryan's remark that if the country had a Clinton presidency, the country's "fiscal cliff mess" would be fixed, saying that Ryan has given Obama "the shortest honeymoon in history."
"It's exactly what's wrong with Washington. President Obama was inaugurated one week ago," Israel says. "Name calling and vilifying and attaching blame, can we just talk about solutions rather than engaging in the name calling? The country would be much better off if we could do that."
