Hillary Clinton's new hobby as a ventriloquist has a bright future.

The actual caption: YANGON, MYANMAR - DECEMBER 2: Myanmar's democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi and U.S Secretary of State Hillary Clinton speak together after their meeting at Suu Kyi's residence laying out a framework for reforms on December 2nd, 2011 in Yangon, Myanmar. The pace of change in Myanmar has brought Clinton's visit which is the first in over a half a century. In March the army handed power to a civilian government after almost five decades of military regime's strong arm rule. The handover took place after a controlled election under a new constitution that preserved much of the military clout.  Internet has been loosened up as inaccessible foreign news and opposition websites have been unblocked.
