She was born in Chicago, but Hillary Clinton was inducted Monday into the Irish America Hall of Fame, who praised the likely Democratic presidential contender for her work on the Irish peace process.
Clinton did not address her growing email controversy, speaking instead about her experience meeting women in Northern Ireland during negotiations for the Good Friday agreement.
“You cannot bring peace and security to people just by signing an agreement,” she said. “In fact, most peace agreements don’t last.” She said that when “the work of peace permeates down to the kitchen table, to the backyard, to the neighborhood, around cups of tea, there’s a much greater chance the agreement will hold.”
Previous inductees include former President Bill Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden.
