Hillary Clinton Responds to Heckler, Urges Civility and Discourse

by at . Comments

At a speech on Wednesday in Buffalo, N.Y., former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took on a heckler by encouraging him to ... not heckle.

Clinton made it clear that citizenship doesn’t include yelling. “It includes sitting down and talking,” she said, to a rousing ovation from the 6,500 on hand.

The man, who had been yelling from an upper section of the bleachers during the event at University of Buffalo, was eventually led away by security.

He screamed "Benghazi, Benghazi, you let them die" in reference to the 9/11/12 terror attack on a U.S. Embassy in Libya in which four Americans died.

“We can’t move from crisis to crisis,” she said, according to reports, “we have to be willing to come together as citizens to focus on the kind of future we want.”

It has been a particularly divisive few years in the nation’s capital, capped off by the recent government shutdown and the looming debt ceiling fight.

The general public is none too pleased.

According to a poll released earlier this month, 72 percent of Americans opposed the shutdown and 74 percent disapprove of the job done by GOP Republicans.

Respondents also opposed by 64 to 27 percent the idea of blocking an increase in the nation's debt ceiling as a way to stop Obamacare from implementation.

Congressional Democrats and President Barack Obama didn’t fare much better, though, posting 32 percent and 45 percent job approval ratings in the survey.

No matter which side of the spectrum they're on, maybe it’s time for congressional leaders to take Clinton’s advice and just talk through their issues?

So that instead of reporting on partisan gridlock and letting the prospects for a brighter future grow dimmer by the day, we could actually get stuff done?

Novel concept, we know.
