Strangest quote of the day yesterday comes from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, during her first (and very brief) press conference.

As captured in Nick Kralev’s adept analysis: “There is a great exhalation of breath going on around the world as people express their appreciation for the new direction that’s being set and the team that’s [been] put together by the president.”


My colleague Stephen Dinan pointed out, perhaps she meant to say “collective sigh.”
