Harrop: Can Hillary pace herself?
The football helmet that State Department staffers presented Hillary Clinton upon her return to the office was cute, but only sort of. Same went for the “Clinton” football jersey bearing the number 112. That’s how many countries she’s visited since becoming secretary of state.
Clinton had been away sick for a month. She had suffered a stomach virus, which caused dehydration, which made her woozy, which led to a fall, which caused a concussion, which landed her in a hospital with a blood clot in her head.
No secretary of state had gone to that many countries. In her nearly 1,500 days as America’s top diplomat, Clinton traveled to 401 of them. During one famous 48-hour period, she met with Palestinian officials in Abu Dhabi, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem and, after doing an all-nighter in Morocco, a group of Arab leaders.
