In this conversation she talks about Britons' changing views of America, going from the Bush Administration to the Obama administration, the recent visit by the President and First Lady to the country, and the importance of the so-called "special relationship" between the U.S. and the U.K. She also discusses aspects of current British politics as they relate to the U.S., and responds to a question about the impact of WikiLeaks on current Embassy work.
