Hillary Clinton said Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America" that the "gutsiest thing" she's ever done in her personal life is stay in her marriage to former President Bill Clinton.

  • Clinton, who was promoting her new book "The Book of Gutsy Women" with her daughter, Chelsea, said that the gutsiest thing she's ever done "publicly, politically" was decide to run for president.
  • Chelsea noted that she was "overwhelmed" and "a bit out of words" after the honesty of her mother's response.

The full exchange:

AMY ROBACH: Can I ask you, what's the gutsiest thing you've ever done?
HILLARY CLINTON: Ah, boy. Well, personally, make the decision to stay in my marriage. Publicly, politically, run for president. And keep going. Just get up every day and keep going.
ROBACH: I love it. Chelsea, how about you?
CHELSEA CLINTON: Oh, goodness. I think — I'm so overwhelmed by my mother's answer that I'm a bit out of words. And I'm just so proud to be her daughter. But my most important identity is as my three kids' mom, so I'm just going to try to be gutsy every day, Amy.

Wednesday was the worst day in college sports since March 12, when the coronavirus pandemic shut everything down.

Driving the news: The Ivy League announced that it will cancel all fall sports and will not consider resuming sports until Jan. 1, 2021 — and Stanford is permanently cutting 11 of its 36 varsity sports to help offset a projected $70 million, pandemic-fueled deficit.

Another 1.3 million Americans applied for unemployment benefits last week, the Labor Department said Thursday.

Why it matters: The number of new unemployment applications has fallen steadily since peaking in March, but the number is still historically higher than before the pandemic hit. Economists are watching the weekly gauge for any sign that spiking unemployment may come alongside the sharp uptick in coronavirus cases around the country.

U.S. economic data is crumbling as increasing coronavirus cases keep consumers at home and force more cities and states to restrict commerce, but the stock market has continued to rise.

What's happening: Bullish fund managers are starting to lay down bets that it will be this way for a while. "The reason is: You have monetary and fiscal policy pushing the economy out of a problem and that is very, very bullish," Andrew Slimmon, senior portfolio manager at Morgan Stanley Investment Management, tells Axios.
