Hillary Rodham Clinton says that if the phone rings at 3 a.m. at the White House, she's certain that President Barack Obama will know what to do. Such a phone call in the wee hours - probably about an unexpected crisis - was a central argument that Clinton used during her primary campaign against Obama last year. She argued in a TV ad that she was the candidate with the experience to answer that 3 a.m. call. Clinton is now secretary of state and works for President Obama. She says her boss has shown he is fully capable of handling that kind of crisis call. Clinton told ABC's "This Week" that Obama's public and private actions show him to be strong, thoughtful and decisive.
