It’s been a long time since I’ve seen Hillary story with so much potential for ridicule and snark. Let ’em fly!

Clinton: Dealing with climate change like trying to lose weight

WASHINGTON (CNN) – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made an unusual comparison Wednesday during remarks that celebrated Earth Day.

“You know, oftentimes when you face such an overwhelming challenge as global climate change is, it can be somewhat daunting,” Clinton said. “It’s kind of like trying to lose weight — which I know something about. Where you think, you know, ‘Oh, I only have to lose X number of pounds.’ But it can seem like such a faraway goal.”

Clinton observed that the State Department was “mixing messages” by using candy to entice employees to visit exhibits showcasing the agency’s energy-saving projects.
