We reported in the Daily Polichicks that when Hillary Clinton was asked by a Congolese student about Bill Clinton's opinion (intead of hers) on a Chinese loan to Congo, she responded, "Are you effing kidding me?! I'm Secretary of State, not Bill!"  That's not an exact quote, but whatever, close enough. 

If you're going to be a stickler for accuracy, maybe you should check out the Washington Post or some other publication that subscribes to the ethics of journalism and pays for fact checkers.  We report just enough to get by at a cocktail party.  Besides, if you were a guest at a cocktail party on your third or fourth mojito, well, then "are you effing kidding me?!" would be exactly what Hillary Clinton said. But we digress....

Anyhoo-  we can't really blame Hillary for being miffed if the questioner valued the opinion of the "man of the house" rather than that of "the little lady."  On the other hand, one never really knows why a question is being asked, so it's best not to make assumptions.  The questioner, who asked about Dikembe Mutombo's opinion as well as Bill Clinton's, may have wanted to know Bill's opinion simply out of curiosity or to see if it differed from Hillary's.  According to the Associated Press, the French speaking student who asked the question in English approached Hillary after the event was over and explained that he had actually intended to ask her for President Obama's opinion.

Here's the vid.  Watch and formulate your own opinion.
