Meryl Streep introduces Hillary Clinton at the Women in the World Summit: 

I find a lot of similarities: We’re roughly the same age, we both have two brothers — mine are annoying — we both grew up in middle-class homes with spirited, big-hearted mothers who encouraged us to do something valuable and interesting with our lives. We both went from public high schools to distinguished women’s colleges. …We both went on to graduate school at Yale, which is where the two paths diverged in the wood.

Where Hillary aimed her life and where it landed was evident very early on. While I was a cheerleader, she was the president of the student government. Where I was the lead in all three musicals, people who know her tell me she should never be encouraged to sing. Regardless, she has turned out to be the voice of her generation. I’m an actress, and she is the real deal.

This is what you get when you play a world leader. But if you want a real world leader, and you’re really, really lucky, this is what you get.

The Other Situation Room

Our White House correspondent Dan Stone got to tour the other Sit Room with Hillary Clinton. State’s Operations Center, aka Ops, started as a crisis center during the Kennedy administration, when it was trying to figure out how to depose Castro. More recently it’s been the nerve center for monitoring the Arab uprisings, the Fukushima nuclear plant meltdown, and various WikiLeaks dumps.

Foggy Bottom is filled with lore about just how fast Ops can move. There’s the story about Clinton wanting to talk to an ambassador visiting Washington who left his cell phone in his hotel room. Nimble Ops analysts tracked him down by calling his hotel concierge, then sending photos to three different restaurant managers to scan their dining rooms—and got him on the phone, all in a matter of minutes. Then there’s one about former Secretary Madeleine Albright trying to reach a diplomat who was out of contact at a Redskins game. Operatives figured out how to flash a message on the Jumbotron for him to find a payphone.

"I am somewhat sheepishly concerned that it was my preventing one of my early spring allergic coughs," she [Hillary Clinton] said. “So, it may have no great meaning whatsoever.”
