Yikes! Is it true? As far as I can tell, the photo above shows the Condi's most recent Matching Armchairs Classic™ Photo-Op. It was so unremarkable at the time that I didn't even bother posting what is now clearly an historic photograph. Did the State Department consciously eliminate the MAPO? Will Hillary carry on using the classic State Dept. Reception Room MAPO? Or will the MAPO dwindle with Condi's exit? So many questions about this important topic!
