Secretary Clinton's schedule is absolutely packed today, but she'll conclude the day with something delicious and spiritual, the State Department's iftar dinner to celebrate the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, the subject of a recent FP photo essay. With her busy day, though, I doubt she'll be fasting. (At left, Clinton attends a dinner in Brussels on March 4, when she was there to discuss Afghanistan strategy with allies.)
Someone else who has been feasting lately is Clinton’s husband Bill, who ate lunch with President Obama while he was in New York yesterday to give a speech to the city’s financial sector. The two ate at Il Mulino, a restaurant featuring dishes from Italy’s Abruzzo region.
In other news:
•Secretary Clinton has “provisionally agreed” to travel to Israel at the end of October or the beginning of November, reports former FP writer Laura Rozen, who’s now at Politico.
•Clinton most restructure the State Department to make it more efficient, a recent FP article argues.
