Video Flashbacks

February 9, 2010

Given the weekend and snow days, news of Secretary Clinton isn’t spilling forth in the media. Listening to the news as I was getting ready for work this morning, they seem rather obsessed with Sarah Palin’s speech at the Tea Party convention over the weekend. No comment.

Here are three videos from YouTube that I found. They are from different periods of Secretary Clinton’s tenure as SOS. The interview in China I hadn’t seen before and while the news lead-in (which is quite long) in in Chinese, it’s actually kinda fun because it provides some behind the scenes video of her trip. At around 5:05 the interview actually starts (in English). There is a video of an early interview with Jill Dougherty of CNN and also a video statement she issued on human trafficking and my favorite video – the one from March 2009 when she was in Europe and took part in a Q&A with young people and took a question about gay rights from a man named Max who was wearing an “I love Hillary” T-shirt. The video made the rounds on YouTube and he became known as Max from Moldavia.

    Thanks, I hadn’t seen any of those. That last one is too funny.

    I really like that interview in China. I don’t remember that interview getting any coverage here in the U.S. even though obviously her trip did.

    Thanks so much Stacy for giving us our Hillary fix after the weekend and two snow days for the Secretary although I am sure she is still working very hard but hopefully she’s able to get some rest.

    That Max from Moldavia video is too funny!

    I bet the gay community is having big time buyers remorse if they voted for Obama. Honestly, they should have known better – it was soooooooo obvious Obama was uncomfortable with gay rights during his campaign. Rarely would he raise the issue and when he did, he looked like he was going to choke every time he said the word “gay.” Loser.

    So Stacy, you thought you could ban me from your site? Nice try. You only blocked one of my IPs.

    My last comment must have hit pretty close to the mark, huh?
