The Sunday Afternoon Photo Bomb: SOS Hillary Rodham Clinton
I found some photos of Secretary Clinton at Dilma Rousseff’s inauguration that I hadn’t posted before, so I added quite a few of those. Also below are several pictures of Secretary Clinton and Bill Clinton meeting with the Saudi King in New York on Friday. I love the photos of her at Rousseff’s inauguration because I think they show what an outstanding diplomat she is- she could have acted cold and avoided speaking with people with whom the U.S. politically disagrees but in my opinion, that would serve no purpose and quite frankly, Secretary Clinton is above that. The political right made a big stink about Secretary Clinton daring to exchange greetings with Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez but at the end of the day, what the U.S. seeks is mutual understanding and conflict-avoidance- something the right doesn’t understand.
There is still no word on the beginning of her Persian Gulf trip but when I see something I’ll post it.
