Quoting from Josh Rogin, it's no secret the Elders' trip to North Korea was viewed as extremely unhelpful by the governments of both Washington and Seoul. Chris Nelson reported on April 29 that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reacted strongly when asked in a morning meeting if she wanted to meet with Carter:
The performance of President Carter and his delegation in N. Korea this week was either shameful or fatuous...or both...and exemplifies why Carter had no...zero...USG support going in, and even less coming out. An alleged witness account of Clinton at her morning meeting the other day reportedly had the following exchange:Carter... sheesh! "Hell no!" is right. Count me in with Hillary.
"Do you want to meet with Carter?" Clinton is looking at papers, and just says "No." Then she pauses, looks up and adds, "HELL no!!!"
