Secretary Clinton is having a busy week at the U.N. General Assembly in New York. Above, she speaks with the much taller Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt upon their arrival for a meeting with EU foreign ministers at the Waldorf Astoria hotel.

He's hosting the fifth annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative, which President Obama attend today. FP editor Josh Keating attended a "blogger roundtable" with Bill Clinton yesterday and will be blogging from the General Assembly all this week. (Check out Passport for his posts.)
