Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in Mexico last week. During her trip, she visited Mexico City and while on a tour of the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, she got an up close view of the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe which was lowered to eye level just for her visit.
Repoerts are that while admiring the image, Hillary asked "Who painted it?"
History of the image is that it was created in 1531, and appeared on the apron of Juan Diego after he saw, and spoke to, an image of The Virgin. When Juan showed the image to peeps in town, a church was built in her honor.
So Hillary Clinton, apparently unfamiliar with this story, wanted to know who painted the image when she saw it in Mexico. After being told that God painted it, she pressed further asking "But who painted the painting, the roses?" And was again told that God painted it.
On her way out, Hillary told a group that had gathered outside of the church "You have a marvelous virgin." Man, if I had a nickel every time I heard that!
