in response to reader comment: I've just came accross this picture:

I found a caption explaining the above event: http://news.yahoo.com/nphotos/slideshow/photo//091029/photos_wl_afp/d1c0f07a2dae169f69b270f4cb6b12c5/

"[P]aying their respects at the shrine of 17th century Muslim saint Shah Latif Bari Kazmi" (Interestingly, this is the only photo from that event I could find on Yahoo. Was the other one removed?) Now, it *might* be that the blond on the right (in the photo I linked to previously) is the one also shown here (at the very left, background): http://news.yahoo.com/nphotos/slideshow/photo//091028/ids_photos_wl/r1542994493.jpg/#photoViewer=/091028/photos_wl_afp/8c274231c2d050f867e005e037d7118c

Interestingly, I've found another "praying hillary" photo from that visit: http://news.yahoo.com/nphotos/slideshow/photo//091029/481/914653b6faf440068ad9e631be8d1378/

Note the caption: "in front of the grave of the Poet Muhammad Iqbal". Now, if she was paying respect for the bombing victims (more than 100 killed, if I understand correctly), I would understand (and support that gesture!), but I don't see why it was justified to pray twice to honor "celebrities" of the past. Having said all that, and as a believer myself, I like the fact that Hillary is praying. I once heard an inteview where she speaks about the importance of faith her life. This Obama government too is friendly to us believers; it has a special advisor dealing with the "Faith community".
