I interviewed Hillary Clinton about the economy and the debt ceiling.
The fact that you’ve been asked to interview somebody like the president of the United States about a debt ceiling crisis is pretty amazing, and in just a few days we’ll have a new interview with one of the most powerful women in the country.
While I was interviewing Hillary, I also wanted to ask her about her own political history. In 2008, she was the first woman to be a presidential candidate, and she was elected president two years later. To her credit, she was very careful not to make any political statements that would offend people on the right, and I think her campaign was a good one.
Hillary Clinton had been involved in several other major scandals, but none have anything to do with the debt ceiling crisis. A lot of people criticized her for taking the “no-haggle” position during the presidential campaign (which was actually more a “no-haggle” strategy than anything else), but I think that most people, including her, thought that it was a good strategy.
Even though there was a lot of criticism, there’s no doubt that she did the right thing in taking that position. She had already been criticized for her relationship with the State Department, so she knew she would have to defend her actions in public. If she had tried to get out of the debt ceiling crisis without taking that position, she would have immediately faced some very loud and critical fire from the right and from certain members of her own party.
I think the most important thing about your story is that it’s about the people you work with. I was just talking to a friend of mine in a project. He had a project idea and he was in the middle of talking to one of the people who is also in the middle of talking to the main character of Deathloop. The character of the project got the idea, she was the only person who could have done that.
I’m not sure if that was a mistake on your part or if you had already done some of this before you were approached by the Clinton’s. But I don’t think it was the right thing to do to talk to her about your story.
