Girl's got some spunk.

Newly minted Democratic star Sandra Fluke shared a moment with former President Bill Clinton backstage at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night.

According to the Washington Post, Clinton requested to meet Fluke after she finished her prime-time speech.

He reportedly praised her for doing a great job and then confided that he was nervous about his own speech. Fluke's response? "Sir. Please."

Clinton went on to give a 48-minute speech, in which he offered a full-throated defense of President Barack Obama's record.

No signs of nervousness from the former president were evident.
