Hillary Clinton memoir to release June 10

Washington (CNN) - Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's latest memoir on the years she spent heading the State Department has an official release date - June 10, 2014.

The book is an important one for Clinton – the overwhelming favorite to win the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination should she run. Critics have charged that her time as America's top diplomat was marked by no crowning achievement, while Clinton confidants have looked to frame those years as a success and see the book as the most potent way to do that.

Hillary Clinton knocks Supreme Court's campaign finance decisions

(CNN) - Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton criticized the Supreme Court's view of campaign finance at a Tuesday event, telling an audience in Portland, Oregon, that the judicial body's ruling will limit the number of people involved in the political process.

"With the rate the Supreme Court is going, there will only be three or four people in the whole country that have to finance our entire political system by the time they are done," Clinton said during the question and answer portion of an appearance at The World Affairs Council of Oregon.

Last week, the Supreme Court decided in a 5-4 ruling to allow more private money in electoral politics by removing a limit on the total number of candidates one can donate to in one election season.

Clinton reflects on goals in New York speech

New York (CNN) - Hillary Clinton said she worked to expand the United States' international reach and reputation during her tenure at the State Department, as she reflected on her time leading the agency during a Thursday speech.
