US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's temper flared on Monday when a Congolese university student asked for her husband's thinking on an international matter. "My husband is not secretary of state. I am," an obviously annoyed Clinton replied sharply. A week after former US president Bill Clinton traveled to North Korea to secure the release of two detained American journalists, stealing the limelight from the start of his wife's first trip to Africa, Clinton was clearly nettled by the question at a town hall forum in Kinshasa. "You want me to tell you what my husband thinks?" she replied incredulously when the male student asked her what "Mr. Clinton" thought of World Bank concerns about a multibillion-dollar Chinese loan offer to the Democratic Republic of Congo. "If you want my opinion, I will tell you my opinion. I am not going to be channeling my husband." The question was left unanswered as the moderator of the event quickly moved on.
