This photo is from the swearing-in of Mike Hammer as Assistant Secretary of Public Affairs (<- the video is at this post). You may remember that Mike appeared at the State Department not long after the resignation of P.J. Crowley as State Spokesperson and was expected to replace P.J. Ultimately, Victoria Nuland, who had acted as spox after P.J.'s resignation, was named to that post now occupied by Jen Psaki. Victoria, in turn, has moved up to become Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian affairs.
Mike was a model of patience through it all, so we applauded his good humor at his installation. If he would like the role of Robin to Hillary's Batman, it is his for the asking. He gave us one of the funniest official moments of 2012, and we hope he is enjoying his job. Do go back and see that video if you never have.
Meanwhile, here are the badass Hillary quotes. You never know when or why you might need them!
During an interview in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, a moderator once asked Hillary Clinton who her favorite designers were. Instead of playing along, she shot the question down entirely: “Would you ask a man that question?” Hillary Clinton is a total BAMF, and these quotes prove why. Whether she’s texting her BFF Michelle Obama or hanging out in an airplane hanger with her sunglasses on, Clinton has out badassed all of us. She shouldn’t just be the next president. Hillary Clinton should be the next Batman.
