 When using Slideshare's oEmbed in WordPress, inserting the Slideshare URL
 with https included does not actually deliver an https result.

 Sample http response:
 Sample https response:

 However, when using a direct iframe embed, the Slideshare https embed
 works fine. So this appears to be a Slideshare oEmbed delivery bug.

 Two things:

 1) Can we get the "weight" of WordPress in a bug report to Slideshare
 regarding their oEmbed handling?
 2) Is there any reason we don't always attempt to grab https? Would it
 hurt anything?

 Re: my 2nd item, here's a sample situation: Say a client embeds stuff with
 oEmbed with http, and then at a later date switches their site to https.
 Now, those http requests will cause conflicts. Versus, if we always
 attempted to deliver https, sites would be fine if they switch to https.
