"What you need more than anything is allies," Clinton said in a speech after being awarded the annual German Media prize. "We belong together as partners and leaders."

Clinton came to the gala ceremony in the upscale German spa town of Baden-Baden from an international security conference in Munich, where she joined U.N. chief Kofi Annan (news - web sites) in suggesting NATO (news - web sites) could help ease suffering in Sudan's war-ravaged Darfur region.

The New York Democrat received the prize for being "a political ideal" for women across the globe, according to the jury of leading German newspaper, magazine and TV editors.

Hillary Clinton (news - web sites) "stands up for women's rights in an exemplary way and embodies ... the hope for stronger representation of women in politics," the jury said. It also cited her charity work for missing and exploited children.

Her husband, former U.S. President Bill Clinton (news - web sites), won the prize in 1999. Other previous winners include former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani (news - web sites), former South African President Nelson Mandela, the late French President Francois Mitterrand, the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat (news - web sites) and the late King Hussein of Jordan.

The award involves no money.
