Future Perfect

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice shakes hands with the Foreign Affairs Minister of Thailand, Dr. Kantathi Suphamongkhon, at the State Department Tuesday, July 12, 2006, in Washington.(AP Photo/Lawrence Jackson)
Take another look at the caption to discover the State Department's superexciting new approach to diplomacy: time travel. Sadly, the matching armchairs are just as boring tomorrow as they are today. Still, I'm looking forward to more Conditrips back to the future, aren't you?

Will the Associated Press ammend their caption to mention this groundbreaking new tactic? Here's the link.

She's an amazing woman isn't she? She's days ahead of the rest of us. I notice the little bunch of flowers in the vase probably hasn't even bloomed yet in our world.

What did she do on the 19th of July?

She granted him a Kwikee Mart franchise.

How old is that guy? He looks about 12!! Maybe the time travel affected his aging process...

lymie77, I believe that's a microphone occluding the minister's leg. It appears to be wrapped in a microphone cozy.

I think Dr. Kantathi is just adorable in that picture. But you can totally tell that the room is totally coordinated totally just for La Condi, totally. The pale flowers and grey suit and lighter hose do much more for her complexion than the Dr's.

Poor chap had to bring his own props to get the coloration right. His necktie and matching handkerchief in his breast pocket were all he was allowed, and while they look great on him, they don't actually do so well with Princess Secretary.

This photo was taken just before she turned the shake into a deathgrip in retaliation.

Anonymous is right. This is definite proof of time travel. Condi is meeting with a 12-year-old who is Thailand's Foreign Minister 46 years from now when Thailand is the world's dominant superpower! She likes to plan ahead.

And just for the record, Dr. Suphamongkhon is going to be, like, totally my type when he grows up!
