"Madam Secretary, one of the things that you deal with in a surprisingly straightforward way in your new book is that people are obsessed with your human nature," Maddow said while the clip continued as Clinton laughed. 

"Pandas just live their lives," Maddow said while reading a passage Clinton's book released Tuesday, "What Happened." 

"They eat bamboo. They play with their kids but for some reason, people love watching pandas hoping for something, for anything to happen," Maddow continued reading. "In the book, you called [people's interest in you] the panda principle."

"It is true, people ask me these questions all the time," Clinton said. "And I thought well, you know what? I just want to embrace it and go ahead and tell you what I have for breakfast and all the rest of it and maybe it will give people a little bit of satisfaction that they know me better than they thought they did."
