Hillary Clinton at Colgate

Once again eschewing the available podium and teleprompter and using no notes, Hillary Clinton held forth for just under 30 minutes on the place of the US in global leadership. Lecturing in her casual, conversational style, Hillary was guest speaker in Colgate's Kerschner Family Series

Global Leaders this evening. Colgate President Jeffrey Herbst, a foreign policy scholar in his own right, conducted the Q & A which proved to be a refreshing divergence from recent events with predictable and mundane questions from the audience. Interaction and listener participation are fine, but this was a rare treat affording the opportunity to attend what amounted to a master class team taught by two of the best possible professors of the subject.
