So you think there’s only one international pop superstar in the new Washington administration, eh? Not so! Just check out this clip of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appearing on an Indonesian TV variety show called Dahsyat (“Awesome”) this week. (H/t my mom.) The way the young hosts swoon over Clinton, you’d think the Jonas Brothers, or whoever their Indonesian equivalents are, had just walked on set. After some serious talk, they even get the U.S.’ top diplomat to talk about her favorite music around the 4:30 mark. Clinton cites the Beatles and, naturally, the Stones — safe choices, sure, but undeniable ones. The whole thing is funny and surreal, and it’s a reminder that as far as I’m concerned, Hillary should do more TV here in our country, statecraft schedule permitting. Who’s with me?
