Hillary was once again in Gaston Hall at Georgetown University this morning for an event hosted by the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security and the Institute for Inclusive Security.  She spoke on “Smart Power: Security Through Inclusive Leadership,”  and  the event was livestreamed.  Unfortunately,  the only announcement we found was this one dated yesterday, so it was impossible to provide folks with a heads-up.

Hillary Clinton Lauds Female Leaders as ‘Agents of Change’

“Women leaders, it has been found, are good at building coalitions across ethnic and sectarian lines and speaking up for other marginalized groups,” the former secretary of state told attendees at a Georgetown University conference entitled “Smart Power: Security Through Inclusive Leadership.”

“It’s important to underscore this overriding fact: women are not just victims of conflict,” added Clinton, who is widely viewed as a potential first female president if she chooses to run in 2016. “They are agents of peace and agents of change.”

Note to Dana Milbank, M. Scott Mahaskey, and others who chose to focus on attendance:  It is difficult to attract an audience to an unpublicized event. Here at Still4Hill we attempt to keep folks abreast of Hillary’s upcoming appearances.  We depend on a variety of newsfeeds for this information.  No one gets automatic updates on Hillary’s speaking engagements, and Hillary’s supporters do not have clairvoyant abilities to know when and where she is speaking.  Had this event been better publicized, attendance would have been as healthy as it has proven at other events.  Her speech tomorrow at the Massachusetts Conference for Women has been sold out since before news of it came through in a newfeed.

 

Just in from the Department of Flies-on-the-Wall…

President Barack Obama had an hour-long “catch-up” session Wednesday with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to “enjoy an informal discussion on a wide range of issues,” says a White House official.

The Clinton Lectures

A Four-Part Series by the 42nd President of The United States

FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON’S (SFS’68) series of lectures at Georgetown explore the people, events, lessons and guiding principles that have shaped his career in public service.

The lectures examine the framework for a lifetime spent championing an idea espoused by his Georgetown professor Carroll Quigley: that America is the greatest nation in history because our people have always believed in two things – that tomorrow can be better than today and that every one of us has a personal, moral responsibility to make it so.

This four-lecture series takes place over a number of years. The lectures will be webcast live.

This is the second time Clinton has given a series of talks at Georgetown. In 1991, as the governor of Arkansas and Democratic candidate for president, he presented three “New Covenant” speeches to students on Responsibility and Rebuilding the American Community, Economic Change and American Security. These speeches, like the new lecture series, take place in Georgetown’s historic Gaston Hall.
