Hillary Clinton discusses love with Ewha Womans University pupils in South KoreaFebruary 21st, 2009 - 2:16 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, February 21 (ANI): U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton discussed love before an audience of 2,000, and millions more on live South Korean television, when she visited Seoul’’s Ewha University.
Her visit to the worlds largest women’’s university was part of her outreach to ordinary citizens, during her first overseas trip since taking office.
The discussion began after a student at the university asked her how she knew that she loved her husband Bill Clinton, the former American President.
“How does anybody know about love? If you can describe it, you may not fully be experiencing it,” the Washington Times quoted Hillary as replying.
“My husband is my best friend. We have an endless conversation [and] we never get bored,” she added.
The newspaper also reveals that all but one question during the hour-long town hall meeting were personal, having to do with her upbringing, family and career.
“I feel more like an advice columnist than a secretary of state,” Hillary said.
The university students were not shy about expressing their admiration for Hillary, who told them that “personal relationships are really what’’s important in life.”
Hillary even quoted a scientist friend who told her not long before she died: “I”ve loved and been loved. And all the rest is background music.” (ANI)
