What is wrong with this picture?

The Washington Times published a picture of the secretary of state laying a wreath in the Hall of Remembrance at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem (“Clinton dispatching envoys to Syria,” World, Wednesday).

What is striking about the photograph is the notation on the wreath: “U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.” Like it or not, she is our representative. Would it not have been more statesmanlike to have a notation on the wreath such as: “The People of the United States“? I suspect that we the people paid for the trip.

I suppose that we are in for four years of the typical Clinton self-promotion and self-aggrandizement until she runs for political office again. It is all about her. I just hope that it is not at the expense of our foreign diplomacy.
