She has been squarely in the public eye for two decades now, but it's been ages since Hillary Clinton was known for health care, headbands, and chocolate chip cookies. As Secretary of State, Clinton has gone viral all over again, this time as a BlackBerrying global diplomat with favorability ratings reaching 66 percent -- far higher than those of the boss, Barack Obama, who came from nowhere to knock her out of the 2008 presidential race. So will Clinton parlay the surge of goodwill into a 2016 White House run? When asked by Foreign Policy Editor in Chief Susan Glasser whether she was considering throwing her hat in the ring, Clinton replied, "No" -- but even top Chinese officials on her most recent trip couldn't help asking her if she would make one more try for the presidency.
Here, we look at Clinton's evolution during her time as secretary of state -- through 98 nations, 329 days on the road, and 792,618 miles in the air -- from defeated Democrat to celebrity diplomat.
