U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (R) talks with NATO Secretary General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer at the start of a NATO foreign ministers meeting at the Alliance's headquarters in Brussels December 7, 2007.
Fresh Condiproduct first thing this morning! She's in Brussels, which we noted yesterday. She looks like she's having fun after her awful African detour, and who can blame her? Look! It's our old friend, the Dutch Hula-Hoop Guy™! Condi's big NATO agenda mostly had to do with getting Russia to hate Iran just a little bit more, but then people kept distracting her by occasionally bringing up some weird Kosovo place and everything was getting all muddled up.
I also think Condi just doesn't quite know what to make of the pasty new boy:

And I think that's more or less it for the Condiweek. I'm assuming she'll be either traveling all day or, tantalizingly, shopping, and we never get to see that. When will we be able to go on a virtual shopping spree with Madame Secretary?
