The Clintons are pretty solidly rooted in New York at this point. Chelsea, Marc, and future grandchildren are and will be New Yorkers. The Clinton Foundation operates out of New York because, as the Clinton Global Initiative congregates this weekend and coincides, as always, with the U.N. General Assembly (UNGA), a good portion of it participants are big movers and shakers on the world scene and come to New York for both events at once. It is interesting in light of this, that the power couple apparently has two international events planned for the state that gave them their start.
Clearly, given the current economy, these events serve as love notes to Arkansas in that the result may well be a boost to tourism there. But they also may be providing us with a glimpse of what Mme. Secretary's next act may consist of. No matter what she finally decides to do, it appears very clear that as she closes Act III, she and her other half step onto the stage for Act IV as THE International Couple of History!UPDATED 10:21 AM CDT Sep 21, 2012
