Like no cabinet secretary before, outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is being sent off with a huge thank you from the Democratic Party and some of her supporters are even urging the Nobel Peace Prize Committee to give the award to her and her husband Bill Clinton.

A new petition on Change.org calls on the committee to present the prize to Hillary for her work around the world for President Obama and Bill Clinton for his post-presidential international involvement.

"President and Mrs. Clinton have had a lasting impact upon promoting peace in this world. Both have reached out to the poor and economically deprived nations of this world and emphasized the need for tolerance for women's and minority rights," reads the new petition.

While conservatives have hit Clinton for being an ineffective diplomat, Democrats consider her one of the best ever secretaries of state and deserving of the Nobel prize.

Meanwhile, Democrats are doing something few have ever seen before: They are urging supporters to sign an online thank you petition to Hillary Clinton.

"Tell Hillary: Thank you for your service," reads the online petition. "Add your name to tell Secretary Clinton that she did a great job! Hillary Clinton is stepping down as Secretary of State, and taking a well-deserved break after years of service to America. Let's take a moment and thank her for her service as Senator, Secretary of State, and a strong voice for justice in an ever-changing world. Help us reach 250,000 strong thanking Hillary for her service to our country."
