Secretary Clinton is reported to be traveling to India late next month. If the trip transpires, two items likely to be on the agenda are encouraging India to restart dialogue with Pakistan (which was derailed after November's terrorist attacks in Mumbai), and the U.S.-India civil nuclear agreement signed last year.

The timing of the trip could hint at whether and when Clinton will be mother of the bride. In May, rumors were flying that daughter Chelsea is getting married in August. A few days ago, New York magazine cited unnamed insiders who say the wedding will be in late August. If the wedding is on, Secretary Clinton probably wouldn't be scheduling international travel close to the date.
