Madeleine Albright, US Secretary of State (from 1997), was born in Czechoslovakia. Formerly permanent US representative to the UN, in the second Clinton administration she became the first women to head the State Department.

"Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright is 'certainly flattered' by suggestions she seek the presidency of her native Czech Republic, but she has dismissed it without serious consideration, her spokesman said."  -- Washington Post, February 29, 2000
