She, She Pueda?

Where there’s a pander to be made you’ll find a Clinton

ABC News’ Eloise Harper Reports: Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., flew across the country to receive the United Farm Workers endorsement in Salinas, California on Tuesday. The Union, founded in 1962 by Cesar Chavez, represents 27,000 farm workers.
The Senator took the stage with bleachers filled behind her with UFW members wearing red t-shirts chanting “Si Se Puede!” Clinton who rarely utters Spanish to Hispanic crowds, shouted back at one point during her remarks. “Si se pueda is right! That’s right, yes we can!” Clinton used the wrong tense of the the word “puede,” presumably accidentally to the crowd. Clinton has admittidly told audiences that her language skills are not her strongest suit and often referneces her french teacher from college who said to her her “Madmoiselle, your talents lie elsewhere.”

(Obviously language skills are also not Eloise Harper’s strongest suit: “admittidly”? “referneces”? These MSM folks are the professionals! Bow before their staffs and editors!) My Spanish is a little rusty, but isn’t “pueda” in the subjunctive, so what she said was more along the lines of “Yes! We can! Maybe!”?

    I think the teacher’s actual comment was “You speak French like a Spanish cow.”
