    Could be wrong about this, but seems to me whenever the SOS is in town, she has a Monday 4pm meeting with Obama and Biden, no?

      Yeah, maybe the POTUS is out of DC today? I don’t know his schedule.

      I know I’m like an annoying broken record about this but I am so glad she is doing the interviews with Arab television/media. If I worked at the State Dept. as an adviser I would really be pushing outreach with Arab media including blogs. I know compared to every other SOS she does do a lot of outreach particularly when she travels with her town halls but given what is going on in the world, the State Dept. has to be even more aggressive in getting their message out directly to the Arab population via sources many Arabs use. If someone else gets in and defines the administration’s narrative/message first, it’s hard to undo that and that’s sort of what happened with Egypt.
