Clinton Congratulates NH Poet Laureate

From The Clinton Campaign:

Senator Hillary Clinton made the following statement congratulating New Hampshire Poet Charles Simic on being named U.S. Poet Laureate by the Library of Congress.

“Artists like Charles inspire us all to see the world differently,” said Senator Clinton. “As an outstanding poet, essayist, translator, editor and professor, he is an invaluable contributor to the arts in New Hampshire, and across the country. I congratulate Charles Simic on his new and richly deserved role as U.S. Poet Laureate.”

I wonder if she's actually read his work... don't all poets encourage us to see the world differently? Couldn't this statement apply to any new Poet Laureate? Hmmm...
