Refresh my memory… which Clinton is the Secretary of State?

Former President Bill Clinton met Tuesday with North Korean leader Kim Jong Il on the first day of a surprise mission to Pyongyang to negotiate the release of two Americans, holding “exhaustive” talks on a wide range of topics, state-run media said.

Hopefully Clinton can secure the release of the two women. He doesn’t have much of a bargaining chip though, since he already gave all our secrets to China, but I wish him luck nonetheless.

As happy as I’ll be to see those reporters released to Bill Clinton, I can’t help but think they’re in for a long flight home.

Update: In spite of the jokey title to this post that insinuates Obama sent Clinton to N. Korea, Clinton’s people insist it was a private visit. However, that’s not likely. As Former U.N. Ambassador Bolton said, “There’s no such thing as a private trip when you’re the former president and your wife is the secretary of State.”

Update II: Kim Jong Il will release the two journalists. A question: What was Bill authorized to offer on behalf of the U.S. for the release? Psycho-runt certainly didn’t let them go unconditionally.
