Michelle Obama Almost Calls Hillary ‘President Clinton’
The first lady misspeaks while thanking the Secretary of State at the 2010 International Women of Courage Awards.
Colleagues and friends Michelle Obama and Hilary Clinton were together yesterday at the State Department in Washington, where they presented the 2010 International Women of Courage Awards.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was there to introduce the first lady before she addressed the crowd. When it was Michelle’s turn to speak, she seemed to forget Hillary Clinton’s title!
Let me thank my dear friend, Senator – Secretary Clinton,” Mrs. Obama corrected herself, laughing. “I almost said, ‘President Clinton,’” to which the audience laughed with the first lady and applauded her misstep.
“But let me thank you for that kind introduction,” Michelle continued, “and most of all thank you for your friendship, thank you for your support, and thank you for your indispensable advice in getting me through this first year and helping me figure out how to get my family settled in our new life in D.C.”
It’s so nice when the first lady and former first lady get along, isn’t it? (Huffington Post)
