After watching the recent “60 Minutes” interview with President Obama and former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton, I believe Jane Falk [“A public hug, minus a pat on the back,” Washington Forum, Feb. 1] left out an obvious point: Ms. Clinton possessed the light and happy demeanor of someone who, after four grueling years in a stressful job, is relieved by the enormous weight being taken off her shoulders. The president appeared more resigned and resolute in contemplating four more years like the previous four.
