First Stop For Secretary of State Hillary Clinton: Japan!

Back in 1993 when first lady Hillary Clinton visited the great Buddha on the outskirts of Tokyo, hundreds of people greeted her at the train station. Now, when she returns sixteen years later on her first overseas mission as Secretary of State, we'll find out if the Japanese still have love for Hillary.

Hillary's appointment received a mixed reaction in Japan, as some voiced concerned over her statements that China was the most important bilateral relationship for the US, and the cool US-Japanese relations under Bill Clinton. While in Japan on Feb. 16-18, Secretary Clinton will hold talks with Japan's foreign minister and Prime Minister Taro Aso. On their list of things to talk about are: North Korea, Afghanistan, and the financial crisis.

After she checks those topics off the list, Clinton will head to Indonesia, South Korea, and China. Are you happy to see the US top diplomat choosing Asia as her first destination?

When to topic of Pyongyang's past abductions comes up I hope Hillary will take the opportunity to discuss the return of U.S. citizens abducted, being held in Japan as well. The Children’s Rights Council of Japan estimates that between 100-200 American children are abducted to, or retained in, Japan every year. Japan has become known as a “Haven for International Child Abduction”; Japan sanctions International Child Abductions! Father of Takoda & Tiana, held in Japan since January 16, 2004.

CG :rotfl: Does Hillary decide where she should go, or does Obama tell her where he wants her to go?

Whoa DRESS BARN!!!! Oh 80's flashback. Was that dress even fashionable in 1993? I don't think so. but at least she didn't wear her 70's Gunny Sax dress. I would say that her current bad pants suits are a marked improvement over her previous fashion faux pas.

Is that picture of Hillary from her 1993 trip? She has a very pretty smile in this one. I love sincere smiles :)

I think there's more urgency for her to visit the Middle East, but it's smart to shore up our alliances in East Asia as well.
