Are we seriously doing a Meet and Greet to introduce you to Hillary Clinton?  Ummm... no.

What could we say about her that you don't already know anyway?  Married some guy named Bill?  Ran for president?  Put 18 million cracks in the proverbial glass ceiling?

(Uhh... you do know all of that don't you?)

Since we're doing Meet and Greets for members of Obama's new administration, we don't want to leave Hillary out even though she's already well known.  Internationally.  So we're doing this technical Meet and Greet for Hillary to mention just one little factoid:

  • Hillary has one thing in common with Barack: she's a tease.  First Obama teases that he's probably going to ask Hillary to serve as Secretary of State (Oh, Americans, let the anticipation excite you!) and then Hillary hints that she'll probably accept (Americans, work yourselves into a frenzy at the thought!).  Now the latest is that Hillary will accept.  So expect a formal announcement sometime after Thanksgiving that Barack has chosen Hillary to serve as our new Secretary of State.
