NEW HAVEN – US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got a standing ovation as well as an honorary degree at Yale University’s 308th graduation ceremony yesterday.

Clinton, all smiles, was given the ovation when called to receive her Doctor of Laws honorary degree.

Clinton, who earned her Yale law degree in 1973, was first lady during her husband’s presidency, was elected to the US Senate from New York in 2000, reelected in 2006, and sought the Democratic party’s presidential nomination in 2008. She became a diplomat in President Obama’s Cabinet in January.

University president Richard Levin praised Clinton for bringing attention to healthcare, education, and women’s and children’s rights throughout her career.

Clinton raised the degree in her hand, waved, and mouthed “thank you” to the cheering crowd.

Robert Nelb, 23, appreciated Clinton’s presence.

“She’s a true public servant,” said Nelb, who graduated with a master’s in public health. He will begin a two-year fellowship working for the Obama administration’s health initiatives.

“It’s tough to find a job, so it’s nice to have gotten a good one,” Nelb said.

    Since the majority don’t print footage larger than this
    a camera with 4,000,000 pixels or more should meet your wants.
    You see, all the visualisation, positive thinking and positive affirmations in the world will not matter one single iota without POSITIVE ACTION.
    You are going to call the credit bureau and fax
    the letter over yourself.
