NEW YORK (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton says excessive partisanship is causing the U.S. to march “backwards instead of forward” and the nation needs to create “an inclusive prosperity” that helps young people find good jobs.

The former secretary of state says at the annual Women in the World summit in New York that the Obama administration restored American leadership around the globe while she led the State Department.

She compares her time at the State Department to a relay race, saying “you run the best race you can” and then pass the baton.

Asked about her future, Clinton says the U.S. needs to find consensus but has been hurt by “pure ideology” and “pure partisanship” in its political system.

Clinton spoke Thursday night during a panel with International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde.
