Hillary Clinton took audience questions at a town-hall forum in the Democratic Republic of the Congo today, and some testiness ensued. A Congolese university student asked her what Bill Clinton thought about "an international financial matter," according to the Associated Press. From the AP:
"You want me to tell you what my husband thinks?" she replied incredulously when the male student asked her what "Mr. Clinton" thought of World Bank concerns about a multi-billion-dollar Chinese loan offer to the Congo.
"My husband is not secretary of state, I am," an obviously annoyed Clinton said sharply. "If you want my opinion, I will tell you my opinion. I am not going to be channeling my husband."
The question was left unanswered as the moderator of the event quickly moved on.
Clinton (the secretary) is in Congo to draw attention to the use of rape as a weapon by rebel groups in Congo as well as the Congolese army.
