"I saw her as my Secretary of State. I saw her in the Situation Room making arguments to go after (Osama) bin Laden even though it was risky, tirelessly circling the globe as Secretary of State, respected around the world," Obama said on Tuesday during a rally in Columbus, Ohio.

"Her efforts are not always flashy and they're not always appreciated here at home, but she made me a better president and she didn't ask for credit."
