Fresh off her tipsy jaunt to Australia and a swing through Cambodia, Thailand and “Myanmar” with President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is taking the sisterhood of the traveling pantsuit to the Middle East today “to consult on the situation in Gaza.” Let’s hope she left her bottle down under.

An Israeli official said a possible ground invasion has been put “on hold” as Clinton prepares to join ceasefire talks with leaders in Israel, the West Bank and Egypt.
Israel has agreed not to launch a ground operation for at least 24 hours, as Hillary Clinton heads for the region to help broker a ceasefire—

Unsurprisingly, Obama will not be joining Clinton at her meetings with Netanyahu and Abbas.
Thousands of Marines & Hillary are headed to Israel. Hmmm. Obama will probably be on another vacation on talk show. MESS! Pray……..—

But hey, maybe the White House will grace us with another Historic™ photo of the president phoning it in. More on Clinton’s trip to the region:
No worries, guys. Hillary’s got this covered!
"Oh goody, everything will be better now that Hillary is headed to Israel. She totally helped with Benghazi." – says no one.—

Makes sense to send Hillary to Israel. Obama still refuses to step foot in the country, or even recognize our closest alliance.—

Will Clinton continue to remain silent on Turkey’s claim that Israel is engaged in acts of “terrorism”?
Also headed to the region is U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, who is expected to arrive ahead of Clinton.
