Here’s one for the imagine-if-it-had-been-Mitt Romney files. Per the Weekly Standard, Hillary Clinton — a former secretary of state — is unfamiliar with the names of the two political parties that have dominated British politics since 1922.

“It is so special to me, personally, and I think it is very special between our countries,” Clinton said. “There’s just a — not just a common language — but a common set of values that we can fall back on. It doesn’t matter in our country whether it’s a Republican or Democrat, or frankly in your country whether it’s a Conservative or a Tory. There is a level of trust and understanding. It doesn’t mean we always agree because of course we don’t.”
This book tour is going swimmingly.
