Asia Trip Puts Hillary Clinton Back on the World Stage

Hosted by

Hillary Clinton covered a lot of diplomatic ground this week, from new agreements with India to an appearance at a regional conference in Thailand. The Secretary of State also generated some sparks with her comments on Iran and North Korea. Guest host Sara Terry discusses what Clinton accomplished during her week and her agenda for developing US relations in Asia. Does Clinton's high-profile trip mean she's taking a more active role in Washington? Also, President Obama announces a competition for federal education dollars, and the Myanmar military junta's case against Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi is winding down in a courtroom in Rangoon. The trial has sparked international outrage, but will it affect the verdict?
