Do You Know How Freaking Badass This Woman Is? Do You REALLY? [VIDEO]

I always knew I liked former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, but after watching her TEDTalk, now I know I love her. She's smart, she's funny, and if I'm half as cool as she is by the time I'm even half her age, I'll be thrilled.

At 0:36 she credits Saddam Hussein with helping her start her world-famous pin collection (today's pin: Breaking the Glass Ceiling).
At 5:00 her granddaughter asks a hilarious question.
At 5:55 she explains why women's issues are central to America and American foreign policy.
At 7:27 she talks about how she set up a caucus of female UN delegates and had rape declared a method of war.
At 9:10 she explains why you should never forget high school.
And at 12:03 she talks about criticisms from other women and shares her special saying. (You don't want to miss this.)
