Carla Bruni : France's Princess Dianna?

English/NBC Nightly News 2008.03.31 02:04

뉴스를 보다가 재미있어서 봐서 오랜만에 포스트.

2008년 3월 27일자 NBC Nightly News 에서 발췌함

Final in tonight, remember when JFK went to France, he found more people there were interested in his beautiful wife than anything he had to say?
Well it's happening again to the president of France. He married a former model.
They're visiting Great Britain, and she is getting all the attention.

Our report tonight from NBC's Dawna Friesen in London.

From the moment the new French First Lady arrived, the British, it seems, were enchanted.


A kiss from prince Charles, two from the prime mister.
Former super model Carla Bruni stole the show on this two-day state visit. She alone graced the front pages of nearly every British news paper, some comparing her to Jackie Oh and princess Diana.

"The great thing about this trip, she hasn't put a foot wrong. She has actually done everything as if she was born to royalty."

She practiced the courtesy, charmed with her chat, she even wore lower hills than he did, so as not to tower over him quite so much.
She was quite simply the belle of the ball.
But she showed some substance too in a speech about women's health.

"When women are held in contempt, you're demanding respect."

It obviously made her husband proud.

"The sensitivity, these beliefs, this humanity are what contribute to Carla's elegance."

So much praise, it's easy to forget.
This is a woman with a past, who hasn't always dressed so demurely or dressed at all, and who has described herself as allergic to monogamy.
When they began their world-win romance last year, many in France questioned Sarkozy's judgement, dismissing him as a love-sick playboy and her as a hardly fit material for first lady.
But that was the past.
This visit to Britain appears to have transformed Carla Bruni into her husband's best and most glamourous diplomatic asset.

Dawna Friesen, NBC news, London

어쩌면, "열혈 페미니스트" 이신 분들이 기분 나쁘게 생각할 수도 있는 내용이지만, 그냥 재미있는 가십거리로 받아들이고 읽어 줬으면 한다.

she even wore lower hills than he did --> ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Neck and neck, Barack Obama sweeps the weekend primaries.

English/NBC Nightly News 2008.02.13 02:15

Neck and neck, Barack Obama sweeps the weekend primaries.
- excerption from February 11, 2008 NBC Nightly News

The voters continue to have it their way during this primary and caucus season.
And this weekend, they handed Obama a sweep, four straight victories.
It is not enough to decidedly tilt the race. But is it a trend?
And with three big contests coming up tomorrow where Obama is again expected to do well, what happens now in the Clinton campaign where already this past weekend there's been a big change at the top?

All this, where the Republican race roils along, front runner John McCane still has company in Mike Huckabee.

We begin our reporting on all of it tonight on the eve of more primaries tomorrow with NBC's Andrea Mitchel in Washington. Andrea, good evening.

Good evening Brian.
Barack Obama is favored in tomorrow's primaries, which he hopes to propell him ahead of Hillary Clinton in the overall delegate count for the first time.

At the University of Merryland field house, Obama was riding a wave.

"It looks like we're having March Madness a little early."

After winning by big margin this weekend in Washington state, Louisiana, Nebraska and Maine,

"Lately, senator Clinton says, well, you've gotta elect me because I've been around a long time, so I can go after the Republicans, you know, I'm tough. Well let me tell you something, I may be skinny, but I'm tough too."

Clinton, also in the district of Columbia, Marryland and Virginia today, denied that her losses in the latest caucuses spelled trouble.

"I think those are independent electorates, and I everybody knew, you all knew what the likely outcome of these recent contest were. And you know my husband didn't win any of these caucus states, you know, he didn't win Maine, he didn't win Colorado, he didn't win Washington."

But the Clinton team is showing the strain.
In a shake-up, campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle is out, replaced by a long time Clinton confidant Maggie Williams.
Clinton is also counting more than ever on getting most of the 796 super delegates, elected officials and party insiders, so if the race remains close, could tip the balance toward one or the other.

"Super delegates are under a lot of pressure right now from all sides being pursued and the arguments being made why they should be in one camp or another."

Clinton strategy, talk them into committing now to slow Obama's momentum until Texas and Ohio vote in March followed by Pennsylvania in April, states where she is ahead.
A top campaign official told NBC News, now she must win them all.

Clinton's chief lobbyist in the delegates hunt, husband Bill, according to officials in both camps, while former senate majority leader Tom Dasher, a super delegate himself, wrangles super delegates for Obama.

"Bill Clinton's calling every super delegate. I just talked to somebody a couple minutes ago that was on the line with Bill Clinton for 15 minutes and that was at a carwash."

Both sides are also calling John Edwards. Clinton flew to his home in North Carolina to see him privately last week. Obama was to go see Edwards today. But aides said it became a media circus complete with helicopters over head.(?) So they rescheduled later.

An adviser says Edwards is torn that Clinton impressed him with specific proposals on his top priority, relieving poverty, but that is still undecided.
