Secretary Clinton’s husband Bill has been in the headlines the past few days, and I’ve been swamped with other FP tasks, but here’s a quick roundup of Hillary headlines:

•”Clinton tells Kenya to implement delayed reforms,” reports Reuters

•”Clinton Calls for Accountability in Kenya,” reports the New York Times

•”Clinton: Don’t count on North Korea breakthrough,” reports the Associated Press (on the Miami Herald‘s Web site)

•”Nairobi great place to get hair done: Clinton,” a lighthearted Agence France-Presse article on Yahoo!

Clinton addresses the eighth Forum of the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) in Nairobi, Kenya, on Aug. 5. The AGOA is a forum of some 40 African countries that enjoy trade preferences in the giant U.S. market on the condition that they uphold free elections and markets. Clinton will seek to build ties with three African powers — Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa — and show support for three countries recovering from conflict — Angola, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Liberia — while also stopping in small U.S. ally Cape Verde.
