亨利.克雷:伟大的谈判专家

亨利.克雷 (Henry Clay) 去世了
1852629

想想你曾和朋友发生过的争执。最后的结果是什么?是你们其中一个人赢了,还是你们两人坐下来谈判而妥协?在他于1852629日去世之前,亨利.克雷最着名之处,就是能够让人们,甚至是国家之间进行协商与谈判。 

克雷于1777年出生在弗吉尼亚州的一个农场。在1800年代早期,正当北方充满紧张气氛,而南方威胁要脱离联邦之际,他曾经担任过美国众议员、参议员,以及国务卿。你知道他为什么被称为是「伟大的谈判专家」吗?


Think about a disagreement you have had with a friend. How did it turn out? Did one of you win, or were you both able to talk about what you wanted and come to a compromise? Before he died on June 29, 1852, Henry Clay was famous for getting people, and even entire states, to compromise.

Clay was born on a farm in Virginia in 1777. He became a U.S. representative, a senator, and the Secretary of State during the early 1800s, when tensions between the North and South threatened to split the Union. Can you think of what he did to earn the title "the Great Compromiser?"
