(CNN)–Who says there's no bipartisanship in Washington?
Democrats and Republicans may differ over health care, but Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Rep. Don Manzullo, R-Illinois, have quickly come to terms on gefilte fish.
Agreement came at the House Foreign Affairs Committee where Mrs. Clinton was summoned to talk about security through diplomacy.
Manzullo complained that Israel has slapped exhorbitant duties on gefilte fish prepared by a processor in his district - a large processor, he said, of carp caught in the Mississippi River and Great Lakes. "Passover's coming quickly," Manzullo warned, and the Illinois Republican asked if Clinton could use her influence "to get the gefilte fish to Israel, by Passover."
Mrs. Clinton chuckled, but without hesitation declared, "Congressman I will take that mission on."
"Thank you, thank you," Manzullo replied, adding that a failure to get the delicacy to Israel could cost "a couple of hundred jobs."
Mrs. Clinton promised her "best efforts," describing the matter as "one of those issues that should rise to the highest levels of our government."
