The question may have been lost in translation, but a visibly angry Secretary of State Hillary Clinton bluntly told a town hall meeting in Congo on Monday: "I will you tell you my opinion, I'm not going to channel my husband."
The tense moment happened as Clinton spoke to students at a Congolese university in Kinshasa. A male student rose to ask a question about Chinese financial contracts in his country. The student asked Clinton what President Obama would think of the deal, but pool reporters in the room said the translator made a mistake and asked what Bill Clinton would think.
Clinton looked surprised when she first heard the translation in her headset, and then sharply replied, "You want me to tell you what my husband thinks? My husband is not the Secretary of State, I am. You ask my opinion, I will tell you my opinion. I'm not going to channel my husband."
Damn. Granted we have enough problems with Barry in charge, but the thought of an angry Hillary Clinton as President is even scarier. Hillary Clinton has enough experience in foreign relations to know that sometimes words can get lost or tripped up in translation. Clearly, the question, as Hillary heard it, was made in error, not some conspired notion to make a sexist query right to her face. But the "bitch" in Hillary just couldn't see past that logic and thus reacted in a way that was totally unprofessional and uncalled for. Hillary Clinton owes these college students an apology.
