This photo captures a loving wife watching her husband wage a war for the American Presidency.
ABC News’ senior White House correspondent Jake Tapper tweeted this snap of Hillary Clinton watching Bill’s DNC speech in Charlotte last night.
The Secretary of State was 9,930 miles away in Timor Leste, but an aide provided the details of how Hilary reacted to the speech that has everyone talking.
Here are all the details from Politico:
FROM AN AIDE TRAVELING WITH SECRETARY CLINTON: “President Clinton’s speech nominating President Obama started while Secretary Clinton was meeting with the Prime Minister of Timor Leste (the 109th country she’s been to as SecState). The speech ended sometime during the press conference, right around the time she was asked a question about it. From the press conference she met with the staff and families of Embassy Dili. When that ended, she walked over to the Chief of Mission Residence (aka the ambassador’s house, which is part of the embassy compound), where she was able to watch her husband‘s speech on the ambassador’s home computer. Didn’t notice the brand, but it was a 17″ screen sitting on a wooden desk. For you technophiles that were curious as to how she was able to watch the speech, it was via SlingPlayer, which streamed a recording from a SlingBox connected to an aide’s home TiVo.“So she was watching a feed from 9,930 miles away. The stream held up shockingly well, only a couple of hiccups along the way for a few seconds each time. Though when it happened nobody was sure it would resume, so there were a few moments of anxiety. … From the moment the introductory video came on, she was riveted – as were the members of the traveling party who watched with her. It’s safe to say that she loved every single minute of it. It’s possible she did not blink even once. When the speech ended, she was as surprised and excited as everyone in the arena and watching at home when President Obama joined President Clinton on stage. She had no idea it was coming, she cheered and practically jumped out of her chair.”
