When Sarah met the UN

Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is going to get a crash course in international relations this week when she hits New York City for the opening session of the United Nations General Assembly. While in the city she will be meeting with leaders from several of the world's hotspots: Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan, Iraq's Jalal Talabani, the newly-elected president of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari, Columbia's Álvaro Uribe and Mikheil Saakashvili of Georgia.

Earlier today though, it was announced that Sarah would be meeting with someone who dwarfs them all - U2 frontman and world poverty activist Bono. I would just really love to be in the room for that meeting.

Palin's meetings will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday. Presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain (remember them?) will face off in their first presidential debate on Friday. The topic of the debate was supposed to be foreign affairs, but given the ongoing debacle on Wall Street, we'll see if they stick to that format.
