U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Friday she did not come to Pakistan for "happy talk."

Her three-day trip is aimed at getting frank, open discussions going about the fight against terrorism - and that includes presenting U.S. concerns, she said.

In an interview with CNN, Clinton said it's time to "clear the air" with a key U.S. ally. She added, "I don't think the way you deal with negative feelings is to pretend they're not there."

    I am so proud of her. Someone had to say and I am glad it was her. This just proves that Mrs> Clinton would have been an excellant President. She was bold enough to say what had to be said on their turf, not on Capital Hill as so many politicians like to do. BRAVO HILLARY!
