Hillary Clinton has a sense of humour

In case evidence of this fact were needed, here's some from yesterday, during media pleasantries in Hawaii with Hong Kong Chief Executive Donald Tsang. Look out for the streaker (h/t TDW):

The second piece of evidence is an anecdote about Henry Kissinger that Hillary Clinton recounted to historian Taylor Branch. I read it just this morning in Branch's The Clinton Tapes:

As a Wellesley student in the mid-1960s, (Hillary) once ventured to the Harvard campus for a lecture titled "The Future of Europe," and stood afterward in line for a private word...When her turn came, she noted that Kissinger had not mentioned East or West Germany at all, and wondered how these central countries might affect the future of Europe. She said the professor looked at her gravely. "I am sorry," he intoned, "but all my thoughts on Germany are classified."
