Hilary Clinton simply amazed me when she went to the congo democratic and was asked by a student some questions about her husband and all she could do is to get angry and i wonder why the unnecessary anger which she exhibitted, she should take it easy because this is africa and lots of ugly things happen

the problem actualy arose out of a translation issue. the person who posed the question asked about the PRESIDENT and somehow, through translation, it came out as being about her husbands thoughts on the issue. Isn't language fun? lol. I have to say, I thought she did get a little testy, perhaps more than a secretary of state should have though. I found her reaction not very "states-woman" like. Although I can understand her being offended by the mistranslation and how it came out, her reaction should have been much more measured than it was.

Thanks for clearing that up. I didn't know it was a translation problem. And I actually thought that it was pretty funny.

I saw the news clip of what happened and i think she had every right to take offense of the question that she was asked.

I don't think she should have flared that much but it is understandable why.
