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 Rodham Clinton to Speak on Security, Inclusive Leadership

December 1, 2014 – The Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security (GIWPS) and the Institute for Inclusive Security will host remarks on Wednesday by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on “Smart Power: Security Through Inclusive Leadership.”

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.

Hillary made a swing through California and Canada the first week of March, was in New York at the U.N. on March 7, was in Montreal yesterday, and back in New York again today.  At most of these stops she had some very strong words for Vladimir Putin and his land grabbing ways.   Yet it appears that this now private citizen cannot spend 10 days out of the public eye without some concern troll inventing a health condition or making a tasteless remark like one I saw yesterday involving the missing airliner.

Beginning her speech to the Association of American Publishers at Manhattan’s McGraw -Hill Conference Center today with a shout-out to WaPo’s In the Loop contest to suggest titles for her upcoming tome,  Hillary offered tongue-in-cheek guidelines for would-be authors one of which was “quit your day job,” a recommendation she quickly revised.

When Clinton wrote Living History, her 2003 title about her life up until that point, she was a U.S. senator and was overwhelmed by the amount of work necessary for doing her day job and writing a book in the evenings.

This time around, her departure from the State Department would provide her with the peace and quiet necessary to write a book:

“I was leaving the State Department, stepping off that high wire of American diplomacy. There’d be no more interview requests, no more frantic media speculation about my plans — just peace and quiet. So I thought, let’s write another book. It has not worked out exactly that way,” she said, referring to the constant media speculation that she is planning on running for president in 2016.

Absolutely, Hillary!   It has not worked out exactly that way.  At all!

I combed Twitter for twitpics. The only one was this one from Amy Chozick of the New York Times.  Being the only one, and especially high resolution for a twitpic, it went semi-viral.

We know that copies Lisa Rogak’s fine collection of Hillary quotes was being raffled off and hope the lucky winners are pleased with their prizes.

The buzz around Cipriani in New York is that political heavy hitters will attend an AJC dinner this evening in Hillary’s honor but that one big name will be missing.

Pols planning to attend AJC dinner for @hillaryclinton tonight at Cipriani: Schumer, Schneiderman, Rangel, Maloney + more. No @deBlasioNYC.

Best compliments, Mme. Secretary, for yet another well-earned honor!
