Earlier this week, President Obama was in Myanmar, also known as Burma, to speak at Rangoon University about the Southeast Asian's state's reform. Some called it inspirational, but if you looked at Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as her boss spoke, you'd think it was boring. Seems that Hil fell asleep. She couldn't even blame Thanksgiving dinner for her sleepiness since this all went down on Monday.
I'm not going to fault Clinton for wanting to snooze. How many times have you been at a public speaking event and just got a little too cozy in the seat after a sleepless night? It happens to the best of us. It may be a good thing Hillary is retiring soon, so she can catch up on her much-needed zzzs. Check out the video and judge for yourself.
Night night, Hil. I think she napped there for a moment. Her eyes were heavy. And the pinching of the nose -- that's a tactic to try to keep yourself awake because doing 10 jumping jacks while the President is talking wouldn't be the best idea. But no one should give her slack. She was TIRED. It's a human condition. We all get tired and we all have to do things when we are tired and sometimes we close our eyes for a moment or two. I'd rather see her little power shut-eye than have her wide-eyed and crazy looking after downing too many 5-Hour Energy drinks. There was no big head jerk or dribble, so she kept her dignity in tact.
And so what if she's sitting next to Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi who was on house arrest for 15 years and as some are saying may know a thing or two about boredom. I really don't think Hillary was bored. She was tired. She probably already knew the speech since Obama must have ran it by her over coffee while they were preparing, she's been traveling all over the world, brokering peace, and she's Bill's wife. That has got to be tiring.
I say it's no big deal. What say you?
