Global ass-kissing

Barack Obama's first news interview after his inauguration was with al-Arabiya television. His first call to a foreign "head of state" was to Mahmoud Abbas, head of the PLO Fatah. Now Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will make Indonesia her first overseas visit.
New US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has chosen to visit Indonesia on her first overseas trip because she wants to "reach out" to the Muslim world, a spokesman said Thursday.
Yeah, why not...the Muslim world's been reaching out to us and to our friends in places like London, Madrid and Mumbai for years.
