(Newser) – Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says she would be happy to talk to Sarah Palin over coffee. In an interview for broadcast today on NBC's Meet the Press, Clinton says she's never met the onetime GOP vice presidential hopeful and former Alaska governor and thinks it would be very interesting to sit down and talk with her.

Clinton was responding to a question about a passage in Palin's new book that says if she and Clinton ever meet for coffee, "I know that we would fundamentally disagree on many issues." But Palin says, "my hat is off to her hard work on the 2008 campaign trail." Clinton, in Singapore for a meeting of world leaders, says she's ready—and maybe she could make a case on some of the issues on which the two women disagree.
