Classic Facebook Pitfall May Destroy the State Department


The delicate rapprochement between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama demands a gentle touch, but maybe Obama’s wunderkind speechwriter (yes, he has one), Jon Favreau, is going about it the wrong way. As eventually happens to all 27-year-olds, a photo of Favreau drunkenly groping someone made its way onto Facebook yesterday. Problem was, the grope took place on the right breast of a life-size Hillary Clinton cardboard cutout. Inappropriate! Favreau has reportedly called Clinton to deliver what we assume was a soaring, eloquent apology. [Trail/WP]
