Port Vila, Vanuatu (PressExposure) June 30, 2009 -- During the run up to the presidential election, in March 2008, one of Barak Obama's top senior advisers after blurted out "Hilary Clinton's a monster". Clinton had attacked Obama's lack of experience in matters of foreign affairs.
This was the furthest thing from the minds of the diplomats who came together at a recent private dinner party, held at the former Secretary of State Madeline Albright's Washington home. Five previous administration senior advisors joined together to honour the current Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton. George Shultz, Henry Kissinger, Warren Christopher, James Baker, Lawrence Eagleburger, Albright, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice. The only one missing from the group was Alexander Haig.
61 year-old Clinton may have cancelled her scheduled visit to Italy and Greece, following two hour surgery to her elbow, which was fractured in a fall. Clinton had been walking to her car, in the basement of the State Department. Clinton had been on her way to a meeting at the White House, government officials revealed.
While President Barak Obama may have been kept waiting on this occasion, it is doubted that his right hand woman will be deterred by any damage to her right elbow.
Clinton leads the campaign for 'women in high places', as was seen when Clinton was the main speaker for an Emily List luncheon. Emily List is a 24 year-old organization devoted to raising the power and presence of women in politics. Emily List came into being approximately at the same time as when Clinton stepped into the political arena.
Having weathered the storms of Clinton-Lewinsky White House scandal, a presidential impeachment, a failed health reform and eight years as First Lady, one can only ponder at what really goes on in the State Secretary's head as she walks one step behind Michelle Obama. One thing is for sure, Hilary Rodham Clinton has no intention of melting quietly away. Ellen Malcolm introduced Clinton at the Emily List luncheon as "An exceptional figure in American life and a powerful role model for women for our country and for the world".
