“She wants to be in the field for the shoot and in the edit room for the edit,” Steve Capus told the New York Times.
“We both want to see how this goes. It will be full time for the near-term future. But I hope it’s the beginning of a nice, long-term relationship.”
In a statement through NBC the notoriously private Clinton said: "People who imagine and implement solutions to challenges in their own lives, in their communities, in our country and in our world have always inspired me. I hope telling stories through 'Making a Difference' – as in my academic work and non-profit work – will help me to live my grandmother’s adage of 'Life is not about what happens to you, but about what you do with what happens to you.'
