Secretary Clinton With Foreign Ministers Miliband and Steinmeier

This morning, Secretary Clinton met with Special Envoy George Mitchell to discuss his recent trip to the Middle East. Following the meeting, Secretary Clinton said: “We are looking to work with all of the parties to try to help them make progress toward a negotiated agreement that would end the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, create an independent and viable Palestinian state in both the West Bank and Gaza, and provide Israel with the peace and security that it has sought.”

Today, Secretary Clinton also met with British Foreign Secretary David Miliband and German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier. She underscored the importance of the close relationships America shares with the United Kingdom and Germany. She also expressed gratitude to both ministers for their countries’ commitments and work in Afghanistan.

That's our girl. She always thinks to thank the people she is speaking with, and it is always specific. She does her homework, and it shows. She looks lovely and happy so I am also happy for her.

When European leaders can tell America that we cannot advocate a "Buy American" plan without starting a trade war, then I think the "close relationship" with Britain and Germany have become too close.

Quote of the Day -- http://gsn.nti.org/gsn/

"I suppose that every foreign minister's speech by any foreign minister anywhere in the world at the moment says that the Obama administration creates an opportunity, but in this case it's true."

--British Foreign Secretary David Miliband, introducing a plan for global nuclear disarmament.

This paper gives the citizen a fair, comprehensive overview of the problems humanity faces in this area.

I've suggested this before, but it bears repeating that politics tend to trump human existance.

Well then, let me offer a political suggestion in support of this paper and simply state that it may be a valuable motivational tool to create a reasonable target date for a WMD-free planet.

Would July 2045 be too optimistic? One would think 100 years from the first atomic bomb test would serve nicely.

If sucessfull we'll most likely not live to see the day, but our children will and succeeding generations will most likely call it, "The 100 years of insanity."

Which pretty well sums it up in a nutshell.

If that day comes and someone takes note of an 85 year old geezer dancing a jig with an eternal grin on his face at the ceremony, that would be me.

What's wrong with any country deciding to bolster its own industry to create a better life for its citizens? Why should it be wrong for the Obama administration urging people in the U.S. to BUY AMERICAN? A government of a country must first look to the benefit of its own citizens and not for the benefit of foreign citizens.

During the days of the British Empire before World War II, it was a policy of Britain to use her colonies and self-governing territories to dump her merchandise, The Slogan I Remember was "BRITAIN DELIVERS THE GOODA!"

If the U.S. wants a buy American policy that is her choice to make and not the decision of some other country, that is what sovereignty is all about.

Secretary Clinton makes me proud to be an American. My pride increases each day because of the work she will do for at least the next four years. She is smart, gracious and, looks to be, finally happy as she undertakes her new responsibilities.

I have to say, its a breath of Fresh Air to see you in your new role Sec. Clinton! You are making this country proud! You are already hard at work and its great to see that! Thank you Sec. Clinton for the fantastic job your doing! I visit the State Dept website daily, and I always learn something new every single day. It was also really neat to see the British Foreign Secretary say that the people of the UK have a lot of respect for you Sec. Clinton. Keep up the great work, and thanks for all you do Sec. Clinton! :)

I believe Secretary Clinton will do a wonderful job as Secretary of State. We all have to work together and offer ideas that can assist our Government..."We the people of the United States of America" We all come from different backgrounds, education levels and walks of life.
