Talk about "coffee talk"…

In Going Rogue, Sarah Palin takes back her campaign criticism of Hillary Clinton, saying that she now realizes that Clinton was a victim of some sexist media bias.  She goes on to write this:

  “Should Secretary Clinton and I ever sit down over a cup of coffee, I know that we will fundamentally disagree on many issues, but my hat is off to her hard work on the 2008 campaign trail. …[A] lot of her supporters think she proved what Margaret Thatcher proclaimed: “If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman.”

When I asked Clinton to respond, she laughed and quickly took up Palin's suggestion:
“Well you know, I’ve never met her, and I’d look forward to sit down and talk with her.  Obviously we’re going to hear a lot more from her in the upcoming week, with her book coming up and I would look forward to having a chance to get to meet her."

How much would you pay to pour the coffee at that summit?

Here's the exchange:
