Madeleine Albright on Getting Call to be Secretary of State

In this interview with MAKERS, a project that speaks with influential women in America, Madeleine Albright describes how she was asked to be the first female Secretary of State. Albright recalls that Erskine Bowles, the then White House Deputy Chief of Staff, asked her if she was interested in the position. Albright reveals that the decision to take on the duty was easy but she was nervous that President Bill Clinton would choose somebody else. She remembers how she was anxious and doubtful of Clinton’s decision to choose her on the morning he was supposed to call. When the call finally came, Albright describes it as “a completely magical moment.”
