"I was saddened to learn of the death of Lady Margaret Thatcher. The United Kingdom has lost its first woman Prime Minister, an iconic stateswoman, and a fearless leader. The United States has lost one of its dearest friends and most valued allies.

Lady Thatcher understood that the special relationship which has long united our two nations is an indispensable foundation for peace and prosperity. Our strong partnership today is part of her legacy. Like so many others, I respected the conviction and self-determination she displayed throughout her remarkable life as she broke barriers, defied expectations, and led her country. Hillary, Chelsea, and I extend our condolences to her family and to the people of the United Kingdom
." 

- Bill Clinton

London (CNN) -- Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, a towering figure in postwar British and world politics and the only woman to become British prime minister, has died at the age of 87. Thatcher served from 1975 to 1990 as leader of the Conservative Party. She was called the "Iron Lady" for her personal and political toughness.

Hillary Clinton completes her own 'evolution,' officially confirming her support for gay marriage in a video for the Human Rights Campaign released Monday.  Many suspected Clinton, who took steps to make State Department policy more inclusive for gay employees and their families, would join President Barack Obama and other top Democrats who opposed gay marriage in the past in supporting it. She was limited in what political statements she could make while serving as the U.S.'s top diplomat, however. Now that she's stepped down, this is the first public statement she has made.

"Having left public office, I want to share some of what I've learned and what I've come to believe—for America to continue leading in the world, there is work we must do here at home," Clinton said. "I support it personally and as a matter of policy and law. Like so many others, my personal views have been shaped over time by people I have known and loved, by my experience representing my nation on the world stage, my devotion to law and human rights, and the guiding principles of my faith."

President Bill Clinton will receive the 2013 Harry S. Truman Good Neighbor Award. The Good Neighbor Award Foundation announced Monday that Clinton will receive the honor during the foundation's annual luncheon in Kansas City on May 8, the 129th birthday of President Truman.

Karl Zobrist, President of the Foundation, says Clinton was chosen because of his record of public service. Clinton was President from 1993 to 2001. Zobrist says in a statement that since leaving the White House, Clinton's continued public service work has exemplified the spirit and principles to which Truman was dedicated.

Previous recipients of the award include President Gerald R. Ford, Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, General H. Norman Schwarzkopf and news anchor Walter Cronkite.

In just the latest event honoring her service as secretary of state, newly-minted civilian Hillary Clinton today accepted a medal from the Defense Department for distinguished public service, and spoke of the "enormous" pride she feels for her work with the Pentagon during her tenure in the Obama administration.

Clinton, who officially handed over the reins to the State Department at the beginning of the month, was profuse in her thanks and praise of outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, who presented her with the medal and introduced her remarks. Clinton reflected on the historically tense relationships between leaders of the Pentagon and the State Department, and said she was "enormously proud of what we have achieved."

Hillary Clinton plans to write a memoir once she steps down as Secretary of State, she said at a global town hall Tuesday. Although her immediate plans involve “catching up on about 20 years of sleep deprivation,” Clinton said she does plan to write a book. “I don’t know what I will say in it yet,” she said. Her first memoir, “Living History," was released in 2003.


Presidents current and future?

Speculation about Hillary Rodham Clinton's political future is only going to intensify as she holds a joint interview with President Obama on CBS' 60 Minutes. The interview will be taped Friday, and broadcast on 60 Minutes Sunday at 7 p.m., ET.

One possible question: Will soon-to-be-former Secretary of State Clinton seek the presidency in 2016? Don't expect a definitive answer, but it will be interesting to see how she handles it.

Another likely topic: The Obama administration's handling of the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Clinton will leave the Secretary of State's office as soon as the Senate confirms successor John Kerry, which should be next week.

The 60 Minutes people note that this is the first interview "the President has ever done with anyone other than First Lady Michelle Obama."


Hollywood and Washington had another high-profile meeting Sunday as former president Bill Clinton popped up at the Golden Globes.

Clinton introduced a clip from the one of the nominated films, director Steven Spielberg's depiction of another president, Lincoln.

"A tough fight to push a bill through a bitterly divided House of Representatives," Clinton said in describing the Abraham Lincoln movie. "Winning it required the president to make a lot of unsavory deals that had nothing to do with the big issue."

Clinton then deadpanned: "I wouldn't know anything about that."

Clinton also said that Lincoln — which wound up losing the best drama Golden Globe award to Argo — has lessons for today's lawmakers.

"President Lincoln's struggle to abolish slavery reminds us that enduring progress is forged in a cauldron of both principle and compromise," Clinton said. "This brilliant film shows us how he did it and gives us hope that we can do it again."

The Hollywood crowd greeted Clinton enthusiastically, though the 42nd president couldn't escape a little ribbing from Golden Globes co-host Amy Poehler.

"Wow, what an exciting special guest!" Poehler said. "That was Hillary Clinton's husband!"

Former president Bill Clinton can add Father of the Year to the many awards he's garnered in his decades of public service.

The National Father's Day Council, which has been giving out such an honor for 72 years, has named Clinton one of its recipients for 2013.

"With the profound generosity, leadership and tireless dedication to both his public office and many philanthropic organizations, President Clinton exemplifies the attributes that we celebrate through the Father of the Year award," said Dan Orwig, chairman of the National Father's Day Committee.

The 42nd president is being honored for his work through the William J. Clinton Foundation "to improve global health, promote healthier childhoods and protect the environment" and for bringing "global leaders together to work on the most pressing issues," according to the committee's statement.

Clinton and his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, have always doted on their daughter, Chelsea, who turns 33 next month. When Chelsea Clinton was getting ready for her 2010 wedding, her dad said walking her down the aisle was "the most important job I'll ever have."
