Hillary Clinton Has Her Own Species of Tulip

Hillary Clinton kept out of the spotlight during the G20 summit as Tim Geithner served as President Obama's "most important lieutenant," but if she ever needed a reminder of where she really stands on the world stage, she got one from the Dutch foreign minister, who gave her a large bouquet of Hillary Clinton tulips. We never knew this, but in 1994 the Dutch were apparently so enamored with Clinton that they created and named a new strain of tulip just for her. Geithner has a ways to go until he gets one of those. [NYT]
