Obama notes passing of Hillary Clinton's mother

President Obama called Dorothy Rodham a strong, determined and gifted person" Tuesday and said his thoughts are with the "entire Clinton family."

The comments came during a signing ceremony in the Oval Office.

From the White House transcript:

Ms. Rodham was a remarkable person. Anybody who knows her history knows what a strong, determined and gifted person she was. For her to have been able to live the life that she did and to see her daughter succeed at the pinnacle of public service in this country, I’m sure was deeply satisfying to her.

My thoughts, Michelle’s thoughts, the entire White House’s thoughts go out to the entire Clinton family. And I know that she will be remembered as somebody who helped make a difference in this country and this world.

    Obama didn't know her anyway so who cares what he thinks.

    As usual Obama is late with any kind comments. It is a wonder if he even recognized his own grandmothers death. Most likely he didn't know when it happened or who his father was. Isn't this the norm.
