Clinton smitten by ‘vibrant, vital, attractive and smart’ Miliband’s persona
London, Nov. 18 : US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has revealed her crush on British Foreign Secretary David Miliband who, according to her, is “vibrant, vital, attractive and smart.”
Clinton gushed her appraisal during an interview with Vogue magazine.
The interviewer added for good measure: "I got a crush over the phone in about five seconds partly because of his accent."
But he was quickly outdone by Clinton, who responded: "Well, if you saw him it would be a big crush. I mean, he is so vibrant, vital, attractive, smart. He''s really a good guy. And he''s so young!"
Miliband too seemed smitten by Clinton’s persona.
"She applies intellect but also psychology to the dossiers that she''s studying. She''s delightful to deal with one on one. She''s someone who laughs and can tease, and she''s got perspective as well," The Guardian quoted Miliband, as saying.
Miliband and Clinton are not the first transatlantic pair to hit it off.
