Secretary Hillary Clinton encourages "digital diplomacy" from a interactive generation on YouTube

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discusses 21st century statecraft, social networking tools including twitter, blogs, facebook and flickr in a video on YouTube. She calls for action! Be a Citizen Ambassador!

Pass along this viral video and help Secretary Clinton get the word out to encourage ordinary citizens to use these tools at their disposal to advance the interests of our world and safeguard the future of our nation.

I'm really impressed by how Hillary has embraced every available tool at her disposal to communicate with average citizens here and abroad.

Whether it's dipnotes, Facebook, Twitter, You Tube or her "Ask the Secretary" opportunity where anyone can text message her during a trip abroad and get an answer, she has done a great job utilizing these different platforms and it will likely entice young people to consider careers in diplomacy/foreign service, which is great.

I don't recall seeing SOS Rice or Powell all over YouTube, etc. but then again, I wasn't really looking for them. Sec'y Rice seemed very stand-offish to me and I definitely do not get that sense from Hillary at all.

I just posted this video on my site after seeing Sarah and Still4Hill's efforts to make this video take off on the internet and it would be great if we could increase the number of views at the State Dept's YouTube site for this video (as opposed to other platforms for hosting the video so that the State Dept sees just how many people are actually viewing their video- does that make sense?).

So twitter, facebook, reddit and Digg away so we can get the video to go viral!
