At a town hall in the Congo, a student stepped up to the microphone to ask Hillary Clinton about a loan China recently offered the Democratic Republic of Congo. “What does Mr. Clinton think, through the mouth of Mrs. Clinton?”
Hillary stared at him. “You want me to tell you what my husband thinks? My husband isn’t Secretary of State. I am,” she said. “If you want my opinion, I will tell you my opinion. I am not going to be channeling my husband.”Now newspapers (hello, New York Post) are blasting Hillary for snapping at the poor student. I say homegirl has a point. Sure, Bill can go to North Korea and come back 12 hours later with two journalists who’d been imprisoned for months. But why would anyone ask her what he thinks? It’s the political equivalent of a waiter assuming your date will be ordering your food for you.
