(CNN) - While their fictional personas have teamed up on Saturday Night Live, Sarah Palin and Hilary Clinton have actually never met.
But the secretary of state said Sunday on NBC's Meet the Press she'd "look forward" to talking politics with Palin over coffee sometime soon.
Clinton was responding to an excerpt in Palin's forthcoming memoir in which the Alaska governor praises the then senator Clinton's 2008 presidential primary campaign effort.
"Should Secretary Clinton and I ever sit down over a cup of coffee, I know that we will fundamentally disagree on many issues," Palin writes in the new book called "Going Rogue: An American Life. "But my hat is off to her hard work on the 2008 campaign trail. A lot of her supporters think she proved what Margaret Thatcher proclaimed. 'If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman.'"
Secretary of State Clinton would tear her apart!
Who knows... These two could eventually be running against each other for president in the not-so-far-future.
Hillary Clinton is a credible, successful, and reliable politician. She has important buisiness to address, and Palin is NOT important~
Hillary Clinton is one of the strongest, smartest and most accomplished women in the history of American politics.
Sarah Palin is not strong (quitter) not smart (Katie Couric interview) and has ZERO accomplishments (other than setting women in politics back about 60 years)
So what on Earth could they possibly have to talk about – what that Hillary said would Sarah even be able to understand?
wonder how much Clinton would charge for that coffee meeting?
Sarah Palin must learn lot from Hillary
Now that's very interesting that Hillary Clinton would look forward to talking politics with Sarah Palin over coffee.
Might work out better for our country if these two women ran together,,,,,one Republican and one Democrat. Of course I would want to see Sarah Palin as the President and Hillary Clinton as the Vice President. No doubt these two woman could certainly do a much better job than the President and Vice President we now have.
Why? Why give this crackpot credibility? I'm just asking.
If the media would just ignore crazy woman Palin she will go away....
Just what exactly did you DO in Alaska, almost-full time-Governor? I don't think you could EVER possibly share equal terms with Hillary Clinton.
To All Media- Ignore Palin and hopefully she will fade away. That cannot happen too soon.
We need serious candidates – not that.
Pailin gonna get it. The quitter never learn a lesson.
So Palin wrote:
"But my hat is off to her hard work on the 2008 campaign trail. A lot of her supporters think she proved what Margaret Thatcher proclaimed. 'If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman.'"
The above statements would make sense of Clinton had won. Maybe Palin should have named her book "Lost in the space between my ears"
'If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman.'"
Wow, talk about an incindiary comment! While she said its something Clinton's supporters think, and something Thatcher said, obviously, she agrees with it. Its good to know sexism is alive and well.
Why bother Mrs. Clinton.
You know she is a total idiot and there is zero upside and
considerable downside in wasting time with her.
NO! NO! NO!
Pleeeeze do not give Palin the publicity and credibility-by-association that would come with meeting anyone actually important. She is a virus - treat her like one.
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE the gullibility and stupidity of the majority of Americans, who are suckers for a wink and a pretty smile.
Forget the Republican Party. If Palin were the nominee in 2012, it would be catastrophic for the entire planet. Plans to combat global warming would be scrapped, the extinction of many species would be accelerated due to uregulated hunting, research for alternate energy sources would lose funding, illegal abortions would become rampant due to the reversal of Roe vs Wade, race relations would be set back 165 years, biblical fundamentalism would replace the sciences of paleontology, physical anthropology, and zoology, and homosexuality would become a federal offense punishable by stoning.
We would reap what we have sowed.
Should such a totally meaningless meeting ever happen, I'm afraid that Hillary would simply just chew Sarah up and spit her into the toilet bowl where she belongs...
Maybe Obama could have them over for beers.
Two very strong and smart women. If they were in the White House, as President and VP, things might actually be getting done.
How can Sarah proclaim to support women's rights??!! If she were in office she would send what women have fought for back to the dark ages! She is a man's woman, not a woman's woman.
Sarah you cant began to hold a candle to Hillary. She is a way smarter person than you are and than you will ever be.
You might actually want to spell Hillary Clinton's first name properly.
If you want a wink, a "you betcha" and "I'll have to get back to you on that one," ask Sarah Palin.
Wow! CNN is on a huge roll today, only 5 Palin stories. Only 60% more coverage than you're giving the Prez on historic tour to Asia.
Is she that relevant? If she warrants this MUCH coverage 3 years prior to the next election (which she probably won't even participate in) what's that say about Barry?
Both were treated unfairly by the media during the last campaign. I hope that they become friends.
