Hillary Clinton - "My husband is Not Secretary of State, I am"

A visibly annoyed/angry Hilary Clinton did not respond well to an admittedly rude sounding question that turned out to be a bad mistranslation. Despite the thinking she was asked a question that should not have been put to her, Hillary looked very unprofessional in her response.

Video embedded below. (from http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2009/08/024244.php)

""You want me to tell you what my husband thinks?" Clinton replied, clearly irked by the thought of being her husband Bill's spokeswoman.

"My husband is not secretary of state, I am," she replied. "If you want my opinion I will tell you my opinion. I am not going to be channeling my husband."

The only problem? Apparently the translator made a mistake and the student had wanted to know what President Obama thought of the deal. A State Department official tells ABC News the student went up to Clinton after the event and told her he was misquoted. No immediate word yet how Clinton responded.
