April 23, 2014: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton speaks at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, Conn.AP

Another interview, another gaffe for Hillary Clinton. 

The former secretary of State, who's been heavily promoting her new book "Hard Choices" in a likely precursor to running for president in 2016, appeared to state the Conservative and Tory Parties in Britain were rival political parties during a BBC interview. 

"Tory" is in fact another name for the Conservative Party in Britain. 

Asked by the host what she thought of the "Special Relationship" between the U.S. and Great Britain, Clinton declared it was "very special between our countries." 

"There's not just a common language, but a common set of values that we can fall back on," she said. "It doesn't matter in our country whether it's a Republican or a Democrat or frankly, in your country, whether it's a Conservative or a Tory. There is a level of trust and understanding. That doesn't mean we always agree because, of course, we don't." 

Clinton also has uttered several cringeworthy statements about her family's personal wealth in recent weeks. She said she and her husband President Clinton were "dead broke" when they left the White House, although since that time they have collected more than $100 million from speaking engagements.
