Oh, just oodles of photo-ops today, Condi's specialty! I suspect at least one of these meetings was attended by the labor-saving Disneytronic Condibot, because the real one must have needed a nap in there somewhere. See if you can spot the Condibot in today's pictures! Hint: the photos below are in correct chronological order.
To start things off, Dr. Ferragamo met with Greece's gorgeous diplamazon Darling Dora in what I've come to call a "bum's rush" photo-op, in which the object of Condi's flickering attention span just doesn't rate a matching armchairs or dueling podiums setup. Think of this as the Have you met my friend? She was just leaving strategy. It looks to me from the above photo like they were able to squeeze in a brief demonstration of The Madison, though, for the appreciative, overworked photographers on the Condibeat. It's Madison Time, hit it! You're looking good!
Next, our favorite Dr. Secretary had to endure some table time with the boss. Ew:

And then back to the State Department to settle into the matching armchairs with some guy from Singapore:

And was that the end? Oh, dear me, no! Condi got to do some actual work on camera! Well, kinda actual work: she signed some totally meaningless documents with a foreign minister with a made-up sounding name from a probably made-up country:

Wait, what? An agreement to cooperate on energy security in the Caspian region? Huh? Please prove to me that actually means something. Actually, I think it probably kinda means that in the future, no multinational oil corporation with Bush administration members sitting on their boards gets left behind. Hurrah!
Busy, busy, busy! Were you able to spot the Condibot? The answer is in the comments section!
