Secretary of State Clinton’s Wonderful Gaffe was a Inside Joke

March 6, 2009

sos-gaffe Secretary of State  Clintons inside joke was a gaffe? Whatever.  Anyway  I love this picture as it shows truly how well she interacts with foreign emissaries and makes you just want to be there and in on the joke.  Something everyone else has overlooked because it was a JOKE:

“We worked hard to get the right Russian word. Do you think we got it?” Clinton asked.

“You got it wrong,” Lavrov said.

Instead of “reset,” Lavrov said the word on the box meant “overcharge.”

Clinton and Lavrov laughed.

“We won’t let you do that to us,” she said. Trying to recover, Clinton said the new administration was serious about improving relations with Moscow. “We mean it, and we’re looking forward to it.”

I got the joke it seems Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov did to by looking at the photo.
