Susan Rice Lists Iraq War Victory, Asia Pivot, Trans-Pacific Trade Deal As Hillary's Top Achievements


Bloomberg's Mark Halperin asks National Security Advisor Susan Rice about working with Hillary Clinton.

MARK HALPERIN: What would you say are the three biggest accomplishments of Secretary Hillary Clinton when she was at State?

SUSAN RICE: Well, first of all, I think you would have to put them in context of the administration's accomplishments.

HALPERIN: Anything that she participated in a meaningful way.

RICE: She participated in everything that we did in the first term in a meaningful way.

First of all, in the first term, we were able to bring to conclusion two long and costly wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. And she was very much involved in supporting those transitions. In the presidents first term also we initiated and now have sustained what we call, the re-balance to Asia, the Asia-Pacific.

Where we have substantially increased our security commitment, our economic engagement.

As you know we have been negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement to bring that to fruition. We look forward to receiving trade promotion authority from Congress. That is another significant accomplishment.

"She was instrumental in formulating and implementing the re-balance to Asia, of which the Trans-Pacific Partnership is a part," as the U.S.'s top diplomat Rice said.
