Meet 'President' Hillary Clinton
We all know that Hillary Clinton came close to winning the Democratic nomination for president of the United States in 2008. She wasn't successful, but some people clearly haven't forgotten about what could have been.
The secretary of state joined New Zealand Prime Minister John Phillip Key and New Zealand Foreign Minister Murray Stuart McCully for remarks Thursday at Wellington's Parliament Theatrette, and the prime minister made a little slip-up.
"And we, in a purely bilateral basis, have concerns about the fact that Australia" has a free-trade agreement, began Key. "They’re a very important part of our market in New Zealand, so we see Trans-Pacific Partnership as a very important item to be completed if at all possible. So, President Clinton ..."

Laughter — and applause — ensued, according to the State Department's transcript, and Key was forced to correct himself.
"I’m sorry. Secretary Clinton — great," he said. "I thank you for your time here in New Zealand, and I look forward to seeing President Obama when he is here in Japan next week."
