Where Do You Go To, My Lovely?

Methinks this is Condi's "Colin" moment, when she finally loses all dignity (precious little remains)...

Unmarried career woman Condi Rice - surely one of the most a-sexual people on the planet - flies to the AsiaPacific region. With so much going on elsewhere, one must ask "why?" Attempted answeres from Reuters:
With the fighting in Lebanon threatening to spin out of control, sectarian violence approaching civil war in Iraq and increased militant activity in Afghanistan, a security conference in Asia might not seem to be Rice's top priority right now.

But her decision to pass on last year's ASEAN Regional Forum - the region's premier security forum including 24 countries, including Australia and New Zealand, and the European Union - upset many Asians, leading some to argue that Washington was not interested in the continent, so she can ill afford to miss this meeting.

Asia is also home to one of the world's biggest diplomatic headaches in North Korea...
And therein lies a tale.
