On Hillary Clinton's Birthday, Here Are 7 Awesome Things She Said This Year

It's been an eventful year for Hillary Rodham Clinton.

With the release of her memoir about being secretary of state, Hard Choices, came dozens of interviews and speeches about her experiences as a woman in the public eye. She's deflected probably a thousand questions about her plans to run in 2016 (fingers crossed, right?). And, of course, she became a grandmother to Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky on September 26.

In honor of her 67th birthday, here are seven of our favorite Hillary Clinton quotes this year:

1. On how done she is with people dissecting her appearance:
