"It is hard enough with two parties to come to any resolution, and I say this very respectfully, because I feel the same way about our own democracy, which has been around a lot longer than European democracy." United States democracy is older than European democracy? One working lunch later with EU leaders, Clinton raised more eyebrows when she referred to EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana, who stood beside her, as "High Representative Solano." One name butchered. She also dubbed European Commission External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner as "Benito." Another name butchered. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton opened her first extended talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov by giving him a present meant to symbolize the Obama administrations vow to press the reset button on U.S.-Russia relations. She handed a palm-sized box wrapped with a bow. Lavrov opened it and pulled out the gift: a red button on a black base with a Russian word peregruzka printed on top. We worked hard to get the right Russian word. Do you think we got it? Clinton asked. You got it wrong, Lavrov said. Instead of "reset," Lavrov said the word on the box meant overcharge. Wrong word completely. She made a great first impression.
