I love Secretary Clinton, she is most powerful and smart...by I don't why Forbes ranked Hillary who leading powerful US State Department and US foreign policy with Pres. Obama ranked 36 and CEO Chiefs powerful han her?????? Shame on Forbes, shame.

Hillary, please snap Forbes with this ranking, I'm very angry that Rice who I hate her ranked 7, 4, 2, 1 and Hillary who has high profile, high influence, ranked 36.

Dear Secretary Clinton,

I've been proudly sharing the details of your trip to Africa and your commitment to empowering women with everyone I know. It is so exciting that you are using the language of empowering women and elevating it to the highest governmental priority rather than leaving it a soft or subsidiary issue. You're right, you need to keep repeating the message, and prioritizing it, until it sinks in. I also read a great article in the NYTimes written by NICHOLAS D. KRISTOF and SHERYL WuDUNN called The Women's Crusade -- it is thorough, illuminating, and gives some suggested guidelines for the areas of future women-targeted aid campaigns.
