Below is an excerpt from remarks delivered by Hillary Clinton at the Associated Press Annual Meeting :
"Fourth, because government abuse is checked by the separation of powers, I will restore respect for our coequal branches of government.
I'll start by limiting the excessive executive powers this president has accumulated, like the unilateral power to wiretap or to detain and try people, even American citizens.
I will work with Congress again as a partner to solve problems. I'll end the use of signing statements to rewrite the laws that Congress has passed. I'll shut down Guantanamo, disavow torture and restore the right of habeas corpus."
