By now everyone knows that yesterday Hillary Clinton lunched with President Obama and had breakfast with Joe Biden this morning at the Naval Observatory where they shared Tuesday morning breakfast many times when she was Secretary of State. There was that one nagging question at the back of every mind that has followed Hillary over the years. Why was she really in DC? We know that she is not frivolous with her time, that she schedules herself most efficiently, so there must have been more. Indeed there was, as this article from Jamie Stiehm at U.S. News & World Report attests.
Clearly Jamie is one of us, but that aside, this is HUGE! HUGE!!! Fulbright-Clinton scholars! Imagine! Perhaps I really am the nerd I think I am, but this, THIS was the real news yesterday, not the political chess games everyone was making of a few meals with former colleagues.
This is an enormous honor, very well-deserved. I am so proud of our Hillary and proud, as well, to have been able to serve.
