Kerry's advice on how to marry women like Clinton

(CNN) - Appearing at Georgetown University on Friday with predecessor Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State John Kerry gave some tips to the men at the school, where former President Bill Clinton also studied.

"For all the men...who sat in or who sit in classrooms where Bill Clinton sat so many years ago, my advice to you is this: Study hard, go to Oxford, become governor of your state, and then maybe you can marry one of the country's remarkable Secretaries of State," he joked.

Kerry was full of praise for Hillary Clinton after she introduced him at the event, which focused on progress made by women in Afghanistan. Referring to her as "Madam Secretary slash Senator slash First Lady slash everything," Kerry thanked her for her work in advocating for women and girls.

Former First Lady Laura Bush was also in attendance. She and Clinton serve as honorary co-chairs of the U.S.-Afghan Women's Council, and will take part in a public discussion at the Georgetown event.

    If she is so great why does Wild Bill keep cheating on her?

    The only thing that frightens me is the complete whitewash of Hillary Clintons record as Sec of State by the media and the utter lack of accomplishments in her career.


    Yeah, except the media hasn't "whitewashed" anything pertaining to Mrs. Clinton's time as SoS. In fact, the media was complicit in the reichwing's attempts to tarnish her and make Benghazi out to be something it wasn't – CBS's 60 Minutes lie of a few weeks ago is only the latest example.

    @rob "...and the utter lack of accomplishments"

    That will be very convincing to anyone without access to the internet and 5-10 sec to spare. Many non-conspiracy-hater sites have long lists. This says a lot about the fact-free universe of most conservative rumor mills.

    The best quality I can think of about Hillary is how she makes the republicans feel.

    Reminds me of a line from the movie 'Lincoln' about George Washington and the Brits.
