Hillary Clinton says Chile mine rescue shows that government is necessary even in a more "conservative" or "limited government" environment

On Thursday, Oct. 14, Hillary Clinton, while hinting at her hope for grandchildren from one daughter (sounds like pressures), discussed the role of government in the Copiapo mine rescue in Chile  This is a country that has preached small government and privatized social security.  But, Hillary said, it took over the rescue from a private mining company and spent about $1 million per each of the 33 miners to effect a successful rescue. The last miner was up by about 7 AM EDT Thursday.  He was the crew foreman.

She also said she had never imagined being Secretary of State.
