Senator Clinton was among several Democratic candidates who addressed a convention of construction-union members in Washington.

"We will renew the promise of this great nation and when I meet with you on that short drive from the White House in 2009, we will be able to say, America is back, we are on the right track," she said.
I don't grasp the meaning of "drive", can I translate like this: 2009年当我在白宫总统的位置上会见您们时...

个人理解,意思肯定是“当我当了总统时”,但short drive 是不是指白宫后面出来的那条不长的路?(白宫平时都是可以供人参观的。但游人只能走后面的那条路。前面的草坪是总统接待外宾的。所以我猜,她说,在short drive 这里遇到您,因为这是完全可能的。)

试译:

2009年,当我和您们在白宫外的那条小路上相遇时,我们便可以自豪地说:美国复兴了!我们正走在一条正确的大路上!

可能是双关语,一方面指当上总统,当然就有可能在白宫外面的路上碰上了。这是我受大家的启发。对吗?

I think she is alluding to the motorcade from the White House to the site of the inaugural ceremony (jiu4zhi2 dian2li3).
