I’ve been to many distinguished lectures during my time at the University of Illinois. However, I have to say Dee Dee Myers was quite possibly one of more inspirational speakers, I’ve had the pleasure of listening to. For those of you that don’t know Dee Dee Myers had the distinction of being the first female press secretary for a US president under the Clinton administration. Particularly I found her message to inspire young feminist, uplifting. The bottom line during her talk was to get across the point, that you need to be confident in things you are passionate about.
Naturally as she pointed out, she is a partisan and could not resist making some comments about the incoming Obama administration and the election that is still being put to bed. I agreed with her that the only place to find experienced people was to look to the Clinton administration since, they have been the only democratic administration in the past 20 plus years.
