Hillary keeps it gully
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had quite a strong reaction to an incorrectly translated question from the audience at a town hall in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The young lady in the audience asked what Sec. Clinton thought about the subject and also inquired of President Barack Obama's opinion on the matter. The translator, in her excitement, incorrectly asked what Mrs. Clinton's husband, former Pres. Bill Clinton, thought about the matter. Well, Sec. Clinton took offense to the question, pulled out her earphones, and put the woman in check in front of everyone. Now her supporters are doing a clean up job saying she was fatigued from the long overseas trip and that she later apologized, etc. I think we just got a glimpse of Hillary being Hillary. I do like her and admire her strength and gumption, but let's face it. She has never struck me as the warm and cuddly or pussyfooting type. If Hill is displeased, you know it immediately. Do you think she should have reacted the way she did? Sound off in the comments section.
