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.

The Pac-12, which includes universities in Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon, Utah and Washington state, will play football starting Nov. 6, reversing its earlier decision to postpone the season because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Why it matters: The conference's about-face follows a similar move by the Big Ten last week and comes as President Trump has publicly pressured sports to resume despite the ongoing pandemic. The Pac-12 will play a seven-game conference football season, according to ESPN.

Global coronavirus vaccine initiative launches without U.S. or China

A global initiative to ensure equitable distribution of coronavirus vaccines now includes most of the world — but not the U.S., China or Russia.

Why it matters: Assuming one or more vaccines ultimately gain approval, there will be a period of months or even years in which supply lags far behind global demand. The COVAX initiative is an attempt to ensure doses go where they're most needed, rather than simply to countries that can produce or buy them at scale.
