TGIF Friday: SOS Hillary Clinton Appointment Schedule
When I got this schedule I fully expected it to say something like “the Secretary returns from foreign travel and no public appointments” or something to that effect but here it is:
10:00 a.m. Secretary Clinton holds a bilateral meeting with Australian Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd, at the Department of State.
11:30 a.m. Secretary Clinton chairs the first U.S.-Indonesian Joint Commission meeting with Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa, at the Department of State.
12:45 p.m. Secretary Clinton holds a bilateral meeting and working luncheon with Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa, at the Department of State.
2:30 p.m. Secretary Clinton conducts a Swearing-In Ceremony for Ambassador to Yemen Gerald Feierstein, at the Department of State.
3:15 p.m. Secretary Clinton holds a bilateral meeting with Indian Foreign Minister Nirupama Rao, at the Department of State.
Good lord! I know she has a bed on the plane, but still. Ever traveled to Egypt/the Middle East? I have. I practically needed to be carried off the plane I was so tired and for the next few days felt like I was still on that plane. But she comes home and has a day jam-packed with bilaterals? In other words, after a whirlwind trip to the Middle East she has to come home and be coherent? And apparently so do her aides and advisers. My hat is off to them.
For all those that say she’ll be “too old” to run [if she so chooses] for POTUS in the future, this clearly is not the case. She’s like the energizer bunny.
