The Dalai Lama's visit to Washington, despite protest from China; the close of the U.S.-Islamic World Forum; Hillary Clinton's visit to the Middle East and her rhetorical battle against Iran; and the battle of the vice presidents - Dick Cheney and Joe Biden at loggerheads on the Sunday morning news shows.  All that, and North Korea's plans for a birthday bash for their Dear Leader, Kim Jong Il, who turns 68 on Tuesday.
