During a town-hall meeting in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton became irate when a student asked what her husband, former president Bill Clinton, thought concerning an international matter. Unfortunately the question was lost in translation and the student caught the wrath of Mrs.Clinton.
Clinton was quoted as saying, “You want me to tell you what my husband thinks? My husband is not the Secretary of State, I am…I will tell you my opinion, I’m not going to channel my husband.”
Although she could of handled the situation a little different I understand her frustration. She is now the Secretary of State and it is important that she is respected as such. It would annoy me as well if I was always compared to my husband and never getting the proper acknowledgment I deserved.
