Hillary Clinton Says She's Feeling Better, Excited About Madam Secretary

Presidential candidates: They're just like us. 

In a rare unscripted moment, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spoke to reporters Thursday about her health and the type of TV she watches.

A reporter asked her if she watched The Good Wife while she was recovering from pneumonia, after falling ill during 9/11 memorial services in New York City.

"It's done and I'm so sad! I really am!" Clinton said adding, "It's really a loss. Madam Secretary, however is coming back, so that's something to look forward to."

A reporter then asked if it was odd for Clinton to essentially watch a her former role as secretary of State play out on television. Clinton responded, "No, I actually get a big kick out of it. I watched it with a little bit of skepticism at first, but I got so into it."

She said she really liked the storylines, calling them "quasi-realistic."

The show stars Tea Leoni as Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord and follows her return to public life at the request of the president after the suspicious death of her predecessor.

President Barack Obama often made headlines in declaring his taste in music or entertainment. He even made a Spotify summer playlist of his favorite songs.

This is not the first time Clinton has discussed her TV viewing habits. In prior TV appearances she has declared a love for House of Cards, Downton Abbey, and the HGTV shows Love It or List It and Beachfront Bargain Hunt.

Clinton recently spoke about being perceived as cold or unemotional but in this off-the-cuff video, her personality is evident. Wonder what will be on her summer playlist?

.@HillaryClinton makes her return. "Welcome back to Stronger Together!"
