Hillary Clinton announced Virginia Sen. Tim Kate as her running mate late Friday, prompting the unearthing of old exchanges between the two former Senate colleagues.

As part of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Kaine questioned Clinton in 2013 about her response to the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Kaine's question was in part a compliment of her leadership as then-secretary of state.

"I think the country is at its strongest when we balance military strength with diplomatic strength, economic strength, and strength of our moral example. I cannot think of a person who exemplifies that balance in a public service career as well as you do," Kaine started off.

The senator then asked Clinton a question about the Libyan government's poor response to the attack. But before Clinton answered, she returned the compliment to Kaine.
