WASHINGTON (AP) -- Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's childhood aspiration of becoming an astronaut was dashed by NASA, but she may not be giving up on the dream of reaching the heavens.
Clinton welcomed the British billionaire Richard Branson to a State Department conference on global investment on Thursday by saying she was "excited he's here because many, many, many years ago, I wanted to be an astronaut, and I think he may be my last chance to live out that particular dream."

Please go, and do not ever return.
We'll get to do something if some powerful politician (or a member of their family) wants to do it.
We'll get the cure for some disease if some powerful politician (or a member of their family) suffers from that disease.
We'll get to fulfill one of our dreams if some powerful politician (or a member of their family) shares that same dream.
I’ll contribute to the cost of her ticket if Branson will promise to leave her there.
Now I know the reason she’s so SPACED OUT. If she does go for a ride make it ONE WAY AND TAKE BILL WITH YOU.
Well the dumb NAG only has herself to blame for this fact because she and Hill Billy did a LOT to damage NASA and then the Obammy admin really crapped on it....
Branson wouldn’t have her in space but might offer her one of his old balloon rides.
I was going to say the same thing - we should take up a collection.
Except that, if you were a member of the Galactic ET community and Earth sent you Hillary, wouldn't you treat that as an act of war? I sure would.
We should take up a collection.
Hillary may not be an astronaut, but she is definitely a Space Cadet.
Exactly. Bang zoom her to the moon and take Pelosi with her and let real Americans, let sane people take their jobs instead. This woman is an absolute fraud. She’s a freakin’ lawyer who worships Marxism and has no business whatsover in foreign policy.
She reminds me of the Despot of New York city Mike Bloomberg making Janette Sadik-Khan transportation commisioner which has been a disaster from day one.
Why? Because the woman is a lawyer who rides a bike, has absolutely no qualifications whatsoever running a million streets of traffic. A taxi driver born in Kabul in this country 3 weeks could literally do a better job.
WTF is it with politicians and lawyers anyway? Does graduating with a law degree and passing the bar qualify someone nowdays as “all knowing”? Not where I’m from. Traffic is the worst it’s ever been in NYC and Iran and the middle east is but all set to start nuclear WW3. Good going Hillary. Good going Barack. Your SOS is as effective as a child.
Cliton and Huma want to join the In Orbit Club?
As a long-standing space cadet, Hitlery is uniquely qualified.
Payola and political corruption is the only way this “thing” would get into space. She wouldn’t get past an elementary science course.
Which is why she’s a liberal, and why she had to marry to get anywhere.
Sorry, libs, but my wife could think the Hillabeast into a stupor.
North Korea has a good space program. Let them fire you into orbit.
I thought the NASA thing and Clinton was BS, just like her trying to become a Marine years and years ago turned out to be BS.
Can’t she just use her broom to go into space?
Pow! Zoom! To the moon.....!
My thought as well -- no heavy lift vehicle available to launch that load into space.
Then I remembered Krusty the Pantsuit is capable of achieving escape velocity all by itself.
And then we will all live as if with Damocles Sword hanging over our heads dreading the day of her re-entry frantically plotting her exact impact zone. Some human achievements are best left unaccomplished.
No, you didn’t really give me those mental images just before I go to bed. Have you mistaken me for someone who totaled your car or burned down your house or something?
SORRY! NO Cankles allowed in space.
