A few tidbits of Hillary-in-Africa news, the first a lighthearted piece:

•Referring to a Kenyan man’s offer of 40 goats and 20 cows for Chelsea as his bride, Clinton said she would convey the “very kind offer” to her “very independent” daughter.

•Clinton meets with Somalia’s president in Nairobi, Kenya, today.

•Clinton hailed India as a model of democracy for Africa, saying that the country’s 1 billion-plus people “have figured out how to run an election where the results can be surprising and unpredicted but accepted.” For more about elections in the world’s biggest democracy, check out the FP photo essay, “The World’s Biggest Election.”

•Clinton said it’s a “great regret” that the United States is not part of the International Criminal Court (ICC). Her husband Bill had signed the ICC treaty, but Congress never ratified it and Bush didn’t care for joining.
