Clinton Consults Predecessors

North Korea, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan...the list goes on. So, how does Secretary of State Hillary Clinton cope? By requesting the advice of her predecessors, apparently. On Tuesday all but one of the living secretary's of state convened at Madeline Albright's home in Washington, D.C. to talk diplomacy. The list of those seated at the dinner table was full of political all-stars, including Henry Kissinger, Colin Powell, Condoleeza Rice, and James Baker. It's hard to imagine working up much of an appetite while considering all the turmoil around the world at the moment.
