Video: Clinton talks Cain to officials in Afghanistan

(CNN) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took a moment Thursday in a meeting with Afghan Pres. Hamid Karzai to tell Afghan leaders about American presidential candidate Herman Cain.

Also in the meeting were U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan Ryan Crocker, Senior Deputy Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan Frank Ruggiero, and Gen. John Allen, commander of NATO's International Security Assistance Force.

    I guess she warned them about Demon Cain, the brother from another planet. Mr. Cain lives on a fantasy planet. A world where racism doesn't exist, despite people using the N-Word. A world where everyone can be number one, which doesn't add up to reality because in order to have winners there must be losers. A world where hard work is always rewarded positively, never negatively. A world where 9 + 9 + 9 = 0. Cain's world really should be made into a movie.

    Hillary Clinton doesn't get it! Her arrogant body language is so repulsive. We are TIRED of elitist members of both parties who do not listen to the American people. Her degrading description of Mr. Cain as the guy that worked at the pizza company is indicative of her distain for non-members of the political elite. Excuse me, is there something wrong with being the CEO of a pizza company? We are ready for a successful, ordinary man to be the president!

    There *is* something wrong when the leading candidate to be President makes remarks suggestive of future violence, and our "allies" start asking awkward questions. "Is he gong to go to war with Iran?" No doubt Sec'y Clinton briefed them on *all* of the GOTP candidates, not just Mr. Cain. BTW, we already have a succesful, ordinary man as President.

    She is making a joke on Cain – He is a joke. The rest of the world knows that. Nothing wrong with being a regular Joe.
    Only nobody wants a regular Joe to run the USA. Except if he/she is exeptionnally brilliant, visionary, huge personality,
    knows the world, etc.etc. That obviously is not Cain.

    Really disgusted to think that our government can go out and make fun of people like that. Really professional. She just showed her true colors, and i did have some respect fort her. And as far as a joke, that whole government is a joke. Not one good in there. We teach our kids to work together, get along and solve issues together, none of them can do that.

    @ Independant – When did multimillionaire CEO's become "regular Joes"? I guess the same time Corporations became "people", eh?

  11. GOP = Greed Over People

    She is explaining why Cain thinks everyone in the United States is so stupid and that we just "do not understand" HIS stupid math.

    Sorry Rudy, but I wonder if they were given a brief on whether we were going to sent troops into Libya and send a 100 man special forces group into Africa. I never herd of it. have youi? Perhaps, they"brief" wa no made avaialble! Maybe her "brief" on Cain was free of any kind of political bias at all, You agree? 'cause I don't!

    You said: "There *is* something wrong when the leading candidate to be President makes remarks suggestive of future violence, and our "allies" start asking awkward questions. "Is he gong to go to war with Iran?"

    Did you say anything when we went to Liyba? How about when 100 special force went to Uganda? You say anything then? You talk about "Future" violence. Have you been muted concerning "present violence? Just wondering!
