Hillary Clinton makes history

(CNN) - As her blue and white jet emblazoned with "United States of America" touched down in Riga, the capital of Latvia, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made some diplomatic history: visiting her 100th country as America's top diplomat. The record for any other secretary up to that point was 96.

As her plane rolled down the tarmac and a flight attendant announced the milestone, her flight-weary staff applauded.

    Obama and Clinton, keeping our country safe through diplomacy and intelligence, not putting us a risk using crazy 'cowboy diplomacy.'

    She travels almost as much on the taxpayer dime as the corrupt, incompetent, inept, union toady president. And, all that taxpayer money spent on boosting this regime has degraded the American image around the world.
