Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was the honored guest at a 2010 Blair House reception.
“For visiting heads of state and royalty, Blair House is not just a place of quiet elegance, but one that conveys our history and values. What happens here can set the tone for meetings, negotiations, exchanges, and everything we hope to accomplish in our diplomatic relations with foreign visitors … I’d like to thank the Friends of Blair House … for your loyal support over the years. The government is responsible for the bricks and mortar of Blair House, but it is your donations that have elevated it into a national symbol.”
— Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton
