Oh, Hillary

Hillary Clinton's confirmation hearing is going on right now, and I just heard a brief clip on the radio in which she was listing all the things that have happened in the world just since the election, and included on her list was (paraphrased) ongoing widespread rape as a tool of war in the Congo.

Our next Secretary of State just cited epidemic rape as a pressing foreign policy concern.


And Shaker Kathy emailed me: "When asked about (mis)treatment of women around the world, she responded that the issue will be central, not adjunct, to US foreign policy. Have I mentioned that I love this woman?"
