The Other Clinton Is Working Hard Too

While her husband stole the headlines this week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is hard at work. As top diplomat for the US, Hillary is currently touring Africa, where she was offered 40 goats and 20 cows by a Kenyan man earlier today for daughter Chelsea's hand in marriage. Hillary graciously replied: "My daughter is her own person, very independent, so I will convey this very kind offer."

But of course her mission in Africa goes beyond fielding marriage proposals for Chelsea. Wrapping up her trip to Kenya, the first stop on her seven-nation tour, Clinton met with Somalia's president at the US embassy in Nairobi to discuss the US commitment to helping Somalia's government fight Islamic extremists. Hillary is the highest ranking official to meet with the head of Somalia's government — a government that is only five years old! In addition to working toward stability in Somalia, Hillary also had a chance to express US support for the International Criminal Court and visit the site of the 1998 bombings at the US embassy in Nairobi that killed 213 people. She is pictured above with a survivor of the bombing.

While Hillary's diplomatic efforts might be a little less flashy than Bill's, it's obvious she's committed.
