Hillary Clinton's latest book, Hard Choices, won't be released until June 10, but Simon & Schuster is giving readers a sneak preview today by releasing Clinton's four-page author's note.

Clinton is surprisingly forward about her political career, admitting that she'd like to redo some of the decisions she's made for the country. "As is usually the case with the benefit of hindsight, I wish we could go back and revisit certain choices," Clinton writes. "But I'm proud of what we accomplished... talk of America's decline has become commonplace, but my faith in our future has never been greater."

In addition to addressing her role as Secretary of State and her actions in the Middle East, Clinton also offers personal anecdotes, saying she "followed her heart" in moving to Arkansas and marrying Bill Clinton, despite negative feedback from close friends.

"Everything that I have done and seen has convinced me that America remains the 'indispensable nation,'" Clinton writes.
