Madam Secretary

Clinton and Pelosi attend James Taylor/Carole King concert

Clinton and Pelosi attend James Taylor/Carole King concert

How did Secretary Clinton unwind after a long day last Wednesday when the White House was dealing with the whole Rolling Stone/General McChrystal craziness? She had a girls’ night out with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi! The Washington Post reports:

Hillary Rodham Clinton and Nancy Pelosi claiming up-front seats at the James Taylor/Carole King show at Verizon Center on Wednesday night. The House speaker’s face was flashed on the Jumbotron; the secretary of state left before the encore. 

Serving as America’s top diplomat is a tough job. Clinton deserves a breather every once in a while.
