A roundup of Clinton-related news:

Former first lady Laura Bush expressed admiration for Secretary Clinton during a talk in Dallas on Monday:

Our [political] campaigns are so long and so brutal that the people who finally win are almost self-selected because they have emotional and physical stamina to run for office. As I watched Hillary Clinton during her run, I had and have a lot of admiration for her. It’s tough every day. It’s not just physical or emotional, but just the chance of saying one thing that gets blown up by the media.”

Clinton spoke with CBS’ Katie Couric yesterday.

In a video message, Clinton says she wants you to help girls and women through www.Oprah.com/forallwomen.

Criminality of the greatest degree” is how Clinton has described the rapes and killings by government forces in Guinea.

Clinton met yesterday in Washington with Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Medmood Qureshi, above, to discuss U.S. aid to the Pakistani government and the Afghanistan situation. Clinton stressed that the $7.5 billion Kerry-Lugar bill, which provides nonmilitary aid to Pakistan for five years and was approved by U.S. Congress last week, will not infringe on Pakistan’s sovereignty.
