Today is Hillary Clinton's last day as U.S. secretary of state. During her tenure, she worked to boost global economic development, health and women's rights. But she also faced a heated review of her handling of the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya. Will Benghazi be her legacy? Where else has she made an impact? Clinton told NPR, "I don't see myself getting back into politics." But is a 2016 presidential run still in the cards?
