CONVERSATION WITH MADELEINE ALBRIGHT
October 5th, 2009
Judea Temple in Coral Gables
Madeleine Albright is in her own right one of the most respected and
influential women in the United States of America. Having served as a
U.S. Permanent Representative for the United Nations and later being the
first woman appointed as Secretary of State, she has undeniably left
her mark on U.S. Politics and laws, from her strong commitment to
democracy, enforcing rules and regulations on arms control as well as
the promotion of human rights both nationally and internationally. In
addition to her political success, Dr. Albright has also written three
novels, Madam Secretary, a Memoir which was published in 2003, The
Mighty and Almighty, released in 2006 as well as her Memo to the
President, released in 2006, all of which have been New York Times
bestsellers. Her new novel, Read my Pins, provides a first hand account
into her unique pin collection, which she has used diplomatically during
her post as Secretary of State. Premier Guide Miami’s Marie-Junie
Pierre at Judea Temple at Coral Gables, Florida.
Dr. Albright’s memoir Read my Pins provides detailed input on how the
former Madame Secretary would wear her pins based on the political
figures with whom she was meeting. Although Dr. Albright did not
initially start wearing a pin for an unspoken political message, she
explains how the public started commenting on her pins, based on the
figure with whom she was meeting, so her pin wearing started to
Although Dr. Albright hasn’t served in a political post
for the past couple of years, the political knowledge which she has
amassed throughout the years will be useful for decades and politicians
to come. When asked about her feelings about the current President and
the issues which he is facing, Dr. Albright reiterates the issues that
she had brought forth in 2006, before President Obama’s appointment as
President. According to Dr. Albright, any new elected president after
the era of George Bush would have to arrive at a solution for the
following issues: 1) fighting terrorism without the creation of more
terrorists, 2) the proliferation of new weapons, 3) the growing gap
between the rich and the poor, 4) energy, environment, food security,
pandemic disease, and 5) the restoration of the good name of democracy.
As to her personal opinion regarding our current President and his
accomplishments, Dr. Albright explains how the image of the United
States of America has been bad over the past eight years. She further
explains the huge efforts of the current President to convert that image
into a good one by taking steps to rectify change in the Public
Relations System of the United States. She goes on further to explain
that President Obama is currently more popular in some countries than
the actual leaders of those countries and how that image of him should
be used to change the entire image of the United States of America.
Perhaps the most important issue which was brought up to
Dr. Albright was the return to a civilized bipartisanship system where
Democrats and Republicans can work together to create a better America.
Dr. Albright explains how the media keeps the issues stirred up between
the parties and how there is no accountability when it pertains to them.
Although the country was built on a bipartisanship form of government,
she explains how that bipartisanship has been taken to a level of
non-civility between the two political parties. She also explains the
efforts that President Obama has made in reaching out to the Republican
party and their failure to reciprocate accordingly.
Dr. Madeleine Albright’s huge influence on American
Politics as well as international politics is admirable. She currently
serves on the Council on Foreign Relations Board of Directors, as
Chairperson of the National Democracy Institute for International
Affairs, and is currently the Professor of Diplomacy at the Georgetown
University Walsh School of Foreign Service as well as various other
posts which allow her to continue to share her vast political knowledge
for the interest and benefit of our country. As a woman, she has paved
the way for numerous other women who are interested in a career in
politics and government, leaving behind a mark that will forever be
engraved in American History.
