hillary-clinton-hard-choicesHillary Clinton‘s Hard Choices is set to release June 10 and this morning, publisher Simon & Schuster released the book’s Author’s Notes to the morning shows and NPR.

“When I chose to leave a career as a young lawyer in Washington to move to Arkansas to marry Bill and start a family, my friends asked, ‘Are you out of your mind?’ ” writes Clinton in the note. “I heard similar questions when I took on health care reform as First Lady, ran for office myself, and accepted President Barack Obama’s offer to represent our country as Secretary of State. In making these decisions, I listened to both my heart and my head. I followed my heart to Arkansas; it burst with love at the birth of our daughter, Chelsea; and it ached with the losses of my father and mother.”
