This weekend, Secretary Clinton flew halfway around the world to Iraq and Lebanon, and now she's back to business in Washington as her official schedule below shows. Does jet lag ever get to her? Perhaps she gets enough shut-eye in the cozy accommodations of the plane she flies in?

Above, Clinton listens to Lebanese parliamentary Majority Leader Saad Hariri as they visit the tomb of his father, slain former Premier Rafik Hariri (in picture), in Beirut on April 26. Clinton made an unannounced visit to Lebanon as the country readies for June 7 parliamentary elections that could see the militant group Hezbollah and its allies emerge victorious.
