<snip> Could this work to turn around anti-American hostility? In the regional press, editorial skepticism, if not hostility, greeted Hughes first overseas trip in her new role. The Arab world is tired of U.S. hurricanes, said an editorial in Asharq, a Qatar daily. It hopes that Hurricane Hughes will be the last one.

Traveling with Hughes was at times like being trapped in a cable television infomercial, with an emphasis on family values. Hughes said that she was a working mom and that President Bush cared about mothers, fathers and children everywhere, especially in a future Palestinian state.

In Egypt, she supported democracy. But the papers focused that day on the prosecution on charges of election fraud of Ayman Nour, the leading opposition figure who got the most votes in the recent presidential election. Local reporters criticised Ms. Hughes for not meeting with enough genuine opposition figures. <snip>
