12:30 p.m.: Clinton holds a bilateral meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas

2 p.m.: Clinton holds a bilateral meeting with Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh.

3 p.m.: Clinton holds a bilateral meeting with Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit.

4 p.m.: Clinton meets with former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and John Hardman, CEO of the Carter Center.

6:15 p.m.: Clinton meets with Quartet representative Tony Blair.

7:45 p.m.: Clinton holds a bilateral meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

(Update, Aug. 31, 9:56 p.m.: Her meeting with Jimmy Carter today was about North Korea, not about Mideast peace, but who knows, he might have offered her some advice based on his experience with the Camp David talks.)
