Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton - The Afghan Perspective - 60 Minutes on CBS

Uploaded on Wednesday 30 January 2013


In this new Afghan Perspective video, Feresteh Forough talks about one of CBS 60 minutes interview with President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

I would like to refer to a very remarkable sentence from Secretary of Sate about her feelings after President Obama won the election in his first term, she said : "Look, in politics and in democracy, sometimes you win elections, sometimes you lose elections. And I worked very hard, but I lost. And then President Obama asked me to be secretary of state and I said yes." And they have been working together not only as the political partners but even friends.

For a country like Afghanistan that spent a complicated political life three decades ago it should be a remarkable example to implement as there was and still there are tensions and contradictions between different political parties which not only lead the government to be unstable but even increase the gap among people who belongs to specific tribes.

برنامه ۶۰ دقیقه این هفته مصاحبه همراه رئیس جمهور اوباما و وزیر امور خارجه ایالات متحده آمریکا هیلاری کلینتون هست. در این مصاحبه باراک اوباما به دستاوردهای سیاسی آمریکا در دوران کاری خویش با هیلاری کلینتون میپردازد. یکی از نکات جالب برای من در این مصاحبه این بود که خانم هیلاری کلینتون در مورد احساس خودش بعد از اینکه نتوانست در ریاست جمهوری آمریکا برنده شود میگوید:‌"ببینید، در سیاست و دموکراسی، گاهی اوقات شما در انتخابات برنده میشوید و گاهی میبازید. من خیلی سعی کردم، اما باختم. و بعد رئيس جمهور اوباما از من خواست که وزیر امور خارجه شوم و من گفتم : بله "
نکته جالب توجه این است که گاهی وقت ها تفاوت ها باعث تضاد و اختلاف نیست بلکه باعث میشود تا افراد با تجربه های کاری متفاوت با یکدیگر همراه و همکار شوند طوریکه یک هدف واحد را دنبال میکنند و آن خدمت به سرزمین شان است
