Compose Yourself: Not So Diplomatic

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
fails to keep her composure in the Democratic Republic of Congo

Apparently the audio on this clip is of the translator and he meant to ask what Mr. Obama's position was, but got US presidents mixed up and said Mr. Clinton. Hillary Clinton then became infuriated, assuming that the question was meant to undermine her authority. This comes on the heels of Bill Clinton serving as a diplomat in Korea to help free U.S. journalists. The question was a product of mistranslation. However, it shows that Hillary is still trying to distance herself from the legacy of her husband.

[Is it me or does she look like the love child of Stephanie Forrester from Bold & the Beautiful and Ellen Degeneres?]
