Hillary Clinton: I am the Secretary of State not Bill!
In a Menopausal moment, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lost her cool Monday after a Congolese student, speaking through a translator, asked her what "Mr. Clinton" thought about a Chinese trade deal with the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
"You want me to tell you what my husband thinks?" Clinton replied, clearly irked by the thought of being her husband Bill's spokeswoman.
"My husband is not secretary of state, I am," she replied. "If you want my opinion I will tell you my opinion. I am not going to be channeling my husband."
The only problem? Apparently the translator made a mistake and the student had wanted to know what President Obama thought of the deal.
You should have seen her eyes bug out of her head..
I thinks she felt insulted that she was not being asked for her opinion, since she was there in capacity of Secretary of State, and I can understand that, but clearly she was a bit over the top with the stringent way in which she answered. And clearly Bill has just been beaming from all the newfound attention he has received since Kim Jon Ile said he would only bargain with him, not Hillary or Obama, in the release of the 2 media people imprisoned in N. Korea... Hillary does not want to be perceived as being in Bills "shadow" as SOS, like she was as First Lady, and I think she has earned that right... but, Hillary... girlfriend.. lighten up.
