It seems the most comment-worthy aspect of U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's visit to Cape Verde last Friday was neither her meeting with Prime Minister José Maria Neves nor the praise she heaped on the government as a "model of democracy and economic progress in Africa." It was her headband.
In a rare nod to her stylings as first lady, Clinton sported a beloved accessory that’s been missing on the political scene for more than a decade — with good reason. Please, please send it back to wherever it came from. Headbands don’t suit anyone over the age of eight, least of all a secretary of state who’s trying desperately to be taken seriously.
I’m sure she was fighting some frizz after her grueling, 11-day, seven-nation tour of Africa last week, but that’s really no excuse.
