Maya Angelou's deep ties with Bill Clinton, politics

Washington (CNN) – On a chilly Washington, D.C. morning in January 1993, Maya Angelou's five-minute poem at Bill Clinton's inauguration turned the already accomplished author and poet into a national icon.

Standing on the West Front of the Capitol, Angelou became the first African-American and first woman inaugural poet when she read "On the Pulse of Morning," a poem she wrote for the new president. The five-minute reading was only the second time a poet has read at a presidential inauguration.

Hillary Clinton walks tightrope on Iran, defends State record

Washington (CNN) – Hillary Clinton's speech on Wednesday to the American Jewish Committee was a tightrope act where the former first lady offered a vocal defense of her dealings with Iran as secretary of state while also expressing skepticism about current negotiations on the country's nuclear program.

One the one hand, Clinton used her remarks to defend her overall record as secretary of state. She called the process of "making policies at the highest levels" a "balancing act with an endless set of tough calls" where "there are always choices we later regret, consequences we do not see, alternative paths we wish we had taken."
