Hillary Clinton's greatest hits

On Monday night, 3000 people paid $200 each to listen to a talk from Hillary Clinton, the first female presidential candidate nominated by a major party to run for US President.

These are her greatest hits.

On New Zealand's female leaders

"You are now on your third woman Prime Minister. Just saying."

On Kiwi offers of hospitality after loss to Trump

"I received a number of invitations from Kiwis to permanently relocate here. I must say I really appreciated the offers. Gave them some thought."

On a visit to One Tree Hill

"I was up at one of the monument parks. The One Tree place. There were a lot more than One Tree.

"Just at that moment, my daughter called from FaceTime with my grandchildren. And the biggest treat I could give them was to move my phone to show them the sheep. My granddaughter was screaming in delight.

"It was just the perfect day."

On dealing with the loss to Trump

"I read a lot, especially mystery novels. I like those, because the bad guy usually gets it in the end."

On Russia

"What we have learned from Russian interference in the election is more than alarming. It is a clear and present danger to democracies and right out of Putin's playbook.

"The Russians are still playing on anything and everything they can to turn Americans against each other.

"Vladamir Putin has positioned himself as the leader of an authoritarian and xenophobic movement that wants to break up the European Union, break up NATO, weaken America's traditional alliance and undermine democracies.

"We can see this authoritarian movement rippling out from the Kremlin, reaching out across Europe and beyond."

On China

"In Australia and here in New Zealand, experts are sounding the alarm about Chinese efforts to gain political power and influence policy decisions.

"Anne-Marie Brady of the University of Canterbury has rightly called this a new global battle. And it is just getting started. And we need to take it seriously."

"We also have to pay attention to what is happening in China with President Xi's decision to abolish term limits and consolidate power.

"The consequences of democratic backsliding in this region have enormous global significance."

On New Zealand

"We will have no better friend, or ally, than New Zealand."

On Trump stalking her in the debate

"I'm thinking, you know, 'This is really weird,' and maybe I should just turn around and tell him, 'Back up, you creep!'"
