Madeleine Albright Thanks C'ville Obama Supporters

October 31, 2012

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright stopped in Charlottesville Wednesday to greet and thank supporters of President Barack Obama.

Albright, who served as secretary of state under President Bill Clinton, stopped by the Obama victory office on the Downtown Mall. She thanked supporters for their hard work leading up to Election Day.

In brief remarks to the crowd, she touched on a variety of issues from national security to women's rights.

The 75-year-old foreign policy expert says one of President Obama's advantages over challenger Mitt Romney is his experience in international relations.

"The bottom line is that I think what President Obama's done is reestablished our reputation and has, in fact, made it possible for us to work with other countries, work as partners," Albright said.

Albright also stressed President Obama's priority of creating jobs and the importance a quality education plays in stimulating job growth.
