Clinton Appears to Nap During Obama's Burma Speech

In this footage from CNN, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appears to fall asleep during President Barack Obama's Burma speech:

The website Mediaite says Clinton looks "subdued."

"CNN’s cameras first checked in with Secretary Clinton about fifteen minutes into the speech, seated next to Nobel Peace Prize winner and former Burmese dissident Aung San Suu Kyi, who is now a member of Burma/Myanmar’s parliament. Sec. Clinton appeared engaged, if a little bit blinky, but by the time the President’s remarks were nearing their finale, the reaction shot was somewhat more, shall we say, subdued," writes Mediaite.
