Obama sends Clinton to Mideast amid Gaza crisis

Source: AP

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) -- President Barack Obama is sending Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to the Middle East in hopes that she can help mediate an end to bloody conflict in the region.

A deputy White House national security adviser says Clinton will depart Tuesday from Cambodia, where she had accompanied Obama on a visit to Southeast Asia.

Clinton will begin her Mideast diplomacy by meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem. She also will meet with Palestinian officials in Ramallah before heading to Cairo to meet with leaders in Egypt.

1. Godspeed Hillary, Godspeed!

I thought the SE Asia was supposed to be her last trip as Secretary of State? Clearly not the case! She has got to be the hardest working woman in our government.

2. Good luck, Hillary

You have your work cut out for you but if she has the negotiating skills of Bill, this could work (I'm speaking about Ireland although Bill also came close in the mid east).

6. I hope that Hillary is successful.

Too many deaths already. A full blown conflict would be harmful to the whole M.E.

good luck Hillary and stay safe!!
