The honors keep piling on. Yesterday, Secretary Clinton received an honorary degree from Yale University during its commencement ceremony. She already has a law degree from the institution, where she met her husband Bill. She received a standing ovation, and Yale President Richard Levin said:

We have known of your brilliance from your days as a student in the Yale Law School. … Now we admire your bravery in confronting ancient enmities, and your boldness in seeking peace.

In a short speech in a separate commencement ceremony for Yale Law School, Clinton encouraged graduates to apply for jobs in the State Department, USAID, and the Obama administration.
