Looks like Gov. Romney is starting off the new year with a big trip:
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney met Monday with Afghan president Hamid Karzai in Kabul.
Romney is widely seen as a likely 2012 Republican presidential candidate and the stop in Afghanistan is part of a larger tour of the middle east intended to burnish his foreign-policy credentials.
Romney aides tell Fox News the trip will also include a meeting with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later this week but the next stop will be in Jordan where the former Governor will sit down with King Abdullah II
Interestingly, the FoxNews article which I’ve linked above says that Karzai met with Vice President Biden after Gov. Romney. That’s a full day for the Afghan president, wouldn’t you say?
