Just out of curiosity - and not meant as "political fodder" one way or another


As nothing other than idle personal curiosity, inspired by the "basta" thing...

I would assume that Wellesley had a foreign language requirement, as did most colleges at the time.

Is there any language in which Secretary Clinton has any degree of familiarity other than English?

I mean, didn't she at least take two semesters of French or anything in college?

1. Probably.

I was in college at about the same time as Hillary (a private liberal arts college, but nothing so tony as Wellesley), and we had a foreign language requirement. IIRC I ended up with a couple of years of German. Of course, if Hillary learned her language then and didn't use it afterwards she's probably very rusty (like my German). Kerry is fluent in French but probably that's not just from his college days.
