Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Makes Embarassing Gaffe Confusing US ally UK’s Political Parties


Wait, wasn’t she Secretary of State once? In a UK radio interview, Hilary Clinton confused the names of Britain’s two main political parties.

Hilary referred to “Tories and Conservatives,” even though the UK’s two parties are Labor and Conservative.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made an awkward gaffe during a radio interview yesterday by confusing Britain’s main political parties.

While being quizzed by Jenni Murray for Woman’s Hour, Clinton suggested that the Conservatives and Tories were opponents, when in fact the two names refer to the same party…The gaffe is particularly embarrassing for Clinton as she used to be Secretary of State, and so is expected to have extensive knowledge of foreign affairs.

Most people would say this is much ado about nothing, and I tend to agree. But you know it’s the type of gaffe the media would never, ever let go if a Republican did it. Remember when Bush’s mispronunciation of “nuclear” was treated like a pressing campaign issue?
