U.S. Secretary of State likes coffee black or with cream but has trouble using coffee machines.


Hillary's husband president Clinton is also renowned for the voraciousness of his coffee appetite. I guess he needs a lot of energy for his extracurricular nightly activities.

The following is a true story obtained originally from the U.S. embassy in Tokyo.

A true story from the Japanese Embassy in US: Prime Minister Mori was given some basic English conversation training before he visited Washington and met with President Bill Clinton. The instructor told Mori" Prime Minister, when you shake hands with President Clinton, please say 'how are you'.

Then Mr Clinton should say "I am fine, and you?" Now you should say 'me too'. Afterwards we, translators, will do all the work for you." It looks quite simple.

But the truth was:

When Mori met Clinton, he mistakenly said "Who Are You?". Mr Clinton was a bit shocked but still managed to react with humor: "Well, I am Hilary's husband, ha ha..." Then Mori replied confidently "Me too, ha ha ha.."

Then there was a long silent moment in the meeting room.

Below more miscellaneous info. as to the coffee likes and dislikes of famous politicians. President Obama says he rarely drinks coffee. He should definitely try Mr. English Coffee. It is a lot healthier than smoking cigarettes. And it won't set a bad example for his lovely daughters and billions of other precious children, either. He's absolutely going to need all the energy he can muster to clean up all of the mess his predecessors left him with. A great cup of coffee gourmet specialty would be a great morning White House pick me up and give him something to look forward to when his mind starts wandering towards puffing on a cancer stick. He is now the president of the United States of America for the next four years and all true Americans must really try their best to accept him and help him in his presidency even if they didn't vote for him. At least he's not trying to change the constitution like they did down in Venezuela and proclaim himself president for life. It's time for all real Americans to stop complaining in the negative and to start doing in the positive. Mr. English is roasting coffee for not only the rich and famous people of the world but all of the people of the world. That's our contribution to help out and make things a little better. It's a small thing but imagine what the world would be like if the only coffee choices were co's like Starbucks, Mcdonalds, Peets, Folgers, Maxwell House, Sanka, and Dunkin Donuts etc.. Well, those are all great choices for people who don't understand what real specialty gourmet coffee tastes like but for the few that have already partaken in the sweet precious nectar of a real cup of coffee life would just not have the same meaning without the small micro roasters around the globe like Mr. English coffee who think of more than just profit, profit, profit. But first and foremost consider fairness, aroma, and taste. Profit is just an incidental that is needed to continue doing business, never something that is the driving force of the co. Small and local is good for the many. Global and Mega is only a path to eventual destruction of anything except selfish profit for a few.

On the December 14 edition of CNN's The Situation Room, host Wolf Blitzer cited a December 12 Associated Press article, in which the presidential candidates answered questions about their coffee preferences, part of the AP's "series of questions about [the candidates'] personal side," and announced, "[L]ook at this -- Hillary Clinton is a flip-flopper. Sometimes she takes it black, sometimes with cream." Yet, Blitzer had offered no characterization of either Rudy Giuliani's or Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) coffee preferences, noting only "Giuliani prefers low-cal sweetener, any brand will do" and "McCain is fond of cappuccino, or coffee with cream and sugar."

The December 12 AP article, in its entirety:

Hold the sugar.

Presidential candidates who drink coffee prefer artificial sweetener or no sweetener, for the most part.

AP asked candidates a series of questions about their personal side. Today's question is about what they take in their coffee. The answers:


New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton: Sometimes black, sometimes with cream

Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards: Doesn't drink it

Illinois Sen. Barack Obama: Black, but rarely drinks it

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson: Cream


Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani: Splenda, Sweet'n Low or Equal, whichever is available

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee: Splenda

Arizona Sen. John McCain: Cappuccino or coffee with cream and sugar

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney: Doesn't drink it, has been known to have hot chocolate

Former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson: Cream

From the December 14 edition of CNN's The Situation Room:

BLITZER: Let's take a campaign coffee break right now. The Associated Press asked the presidential candidates how they like their coffee. Take a look at this:

Rudy Giuliani prefers low-cal sweetener, any brand will do. Mike Huckabee is more specific; he likes Splenda. John McCain is fond of cappuccino, or coffee with cream and sugar. Fred Thompson says "cream, please." Bill Richardson: also a cream kind of guy.

Barack Obama takes it black, but says he rarely drinks coffee. John Edwards says "no thanks," he doesn't drink the stuff. And on this issue -- look at this -- Hillary Clinton is a flip-flopper: Sometimes she takes it black, sometimes with cream.
