Throwback Thursday: Hillary the Stand-Up Comedian (1992)



Here's a very interesting video that even the most die-hard of Clinton fans probably haven't seen: Hillary Clinton speaking at a February 1992 roast of her good friend Ron Brown.

At the time, Brown was the chairman of the DNC and would soon become the Secretary of Commerce under the (first) Clinton administration. Tragically, Brown and 34 others died in a plane crash in Croatia in 1996, a devastating blow to the Clintons, the Democratic Party, and our country.

But this clip is from a happier time, in the months before a major Democratic victory that Brown himself would help make happen.

After an introduction from Larry King, Hillary delivers some good zingers with nimble comic timing, even though (as she alludes to in the clip) it had been a rough week for the campaign. Enjoy!
