We've come a long way baby??

Hillary Clinton is being criticized on the news for her outburst during a panel discussion in the Congo. They say that she was too harsh claiming that her outburst raises concerns about her diplomatic skills...Seriously? GIVE ME A BREAK! As a woman, I can sympathize and understand her outburst...the question was asking what her husband's view was on a trade deal...granted, this was a mistranslation, and it was later stated that the translater meant to say President Obama, not Bill Clinton, but either way, it was insulting to her because her opinion was deemed unimportant. There was a hint of chauvinism in the question because it implied that it was more important to have a man's point of view on the issue than her's. She is a strong and highly intelligent woman and I believe that her views are just as important as any man's. Let's face it, if a man had reacted to a question in the same manner it would not be news.
