What did students in Saudi Arabia want to ask Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about? Republican Sarah Palin.
One young man asked Clinton: “Does the prospect of Sarah Palin one day becoming president, maybe, terrify you?” and whether the Secretary of State might consider moving to Canada — or even Russia — in response.
“Well, the short answer is no. I will not be emigrating,” Clinton replied with a smile. “I will be visiting as often as I can.”
Clinton, who ran for the Democratic presidential nomination last year, is no stranger to politics, but said she would not speculate on who Republicans might nominate in 2012 to run for president. Palin was John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 election.
“You know our political seasons never end. It is part of the American political environment that people are always speculating on who will run for president, and who will become president, and I’ve gone through that experience personally,” she said.
