Hillary Clinton Sets Diplomatic Milestone

by at . Comments

After touching down in Riga, the capital of Latvia, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton set a record by visiting her 100th country as America's top diplomat.

The previous record for any other secretary was 96. Clinton has also visited 22 other countries prior to her cabinet post, making her career tally 122!

Since 2009, Clinton has completed 70 trips, spent 337 days on the road and more than 73 days on the plane, equaling over 1,750 hours, her staff says.

Hope they have a good data plan for all those texts from Hillary!

With media attention focused on politics at home, especially after the Supreme Court health care ruling, Clinton continues to travel (and run) the world.

Dressed in a navy suit, Clinton seemed unfazed by the mileage as she shook hands with Latvian President Andris Berzins at Riga Castle this week.

"I wanted to save a very consequential number for Latvia!" she said proudly ... before heading off to Finland, Latvia and Russia within 24 hours.

I can't remember the last time I saw a President begging for money as he walked the freaking earth like "Caine" from the TV series King Fu. I guess you could say he is leading by example because most of you delirious simple minded idiots that voted for him in 08 will find yourself begging should he get a 2nd. The base of his following are Pro Gay Marriage supporters, Tea Party Haters and Celebs. This in itself should account for .00000000001 % of the population. He will be the only reason that people forget about Nixon. I can't so much as watch him on TV without having to shower afterwards because of all the dirt on this Administration. Hilary is counting the days till the election and Bill- you can bet your ass he will come out again a jerk the rug from under Ohhhhh Bamie!

The woman's only son-in-law is Jewish. With the Obama Admin's anti-Israel policy I bet family gatherings are "quiet". How she can kiss B.O.'s hiney is beyond me! The Foreign Policies she was forced to promote in this Admin. Would be hard for her to defend later. Would be real fodder for her future Presidential opponent to pick at!

Really goood example for women all over the world. She has strived to be the best, even despite problems in marriage when her husband was president. We should be putting women like this on a pedestal and not all those trashy reality stars!

Hopefully when Romney becomes president, next election, he'll be able to turn the Obama mess, around
If not, Hillary will be a shoe in for 2016.
