Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton took a tumble while getting on her plane Tuesday evening in Yemen. It happened just inside the doorway of the aircraft. The secretary got up unhurt and went on with her journey to Oman.

Her surprise visit was used to prod Yemeni leaders to speed up economic and political reforms to relieve social problems that she said helped create conditions that breed terrorism.

Hillary surely would not have tripped up if she had been wearing Michelle Obama's $635 pair of shoes by Maison Martin Margiela as she wore while in Hawaii. I think Hillary has more sense than to demand that the rest of the country tighten their collective belts and then turn around and flaunt designer shoes at $635 a pop. Hillary may have tripped up literally, but she's no hypocrite, like Michelle Obama.

Maybe Hillary was having a flashback to her Bosnia trip in 1996.

Maybe she was just doing her best Gerald Ford impersonation...

Newsflash: We older people trip. A lot. We can't see and/or we wear tri-focals that make it almost impossible to have any kind of depth perception. It sucks. It sucks even more when you have cameras recording... :D
