Hillary Clinton and Diane Sawyer step down memory lane

Hillary Clinton and Diane Sawyer took a trip down memory lane Tuesday night at the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation’s 25th-anniversary gala. Sawyer — who was presenting the former secretary of state with the Global Impact Award — recalled her time with Clinton at Wellesley College, when they were “young girls with coke-bottle glasses.” “One of us spent a lot of time having an identity crisis — that was me,” Sawyer told the crowd at the Best Buy Theater. “I went to law school and didn’t graduate, and ended up doing the weather in tight skirts and lamentably pointy bras.” Clinton was quick to set the record straight, saying, “Everything Diane said is inaccurate.” The evening also featured dramatic readings from Glaser’s memoir by Mary Steenburgen and former “ER” stars Julianna Margulies and Gloria Reuben, who we’re told became visibly emotional while reading the excerpt. Other guests in the house included Nigel Barker, Willow Bay and Miss Universe Gabriela Isler.

Morocco’s Parliamentary Elections

Press Statement

Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
November 26, 2011

I congratulate the Moroccan people on the successful completion of Friday’s parliamentary elections where millions of Moroccans went to the polls to elect their new political leaders. Now, working with King Mohammed VI, the new parliament and civil society can implement the amended constitution as a step toward fulfilling the aspirations and rights of all Moroccans.

The hard work of building democracy does not end when the votes are tallied and the winners announced. As we have seen in so many changes underway across the region, political leaders will be judged not only by what they say, but what they do. The United States stands ready to work with the new parliament and the people of Morocco to strengthen the rule of law, raise human rights standards, promote transparent and accountable governance, and work toward sustained, democratic reform.

I like this. She is speaking on her own. The statement I put in bold should be heeded by all political leaders, not only those in North Africa and the Middle East.
