SECRETARY CLINTON: I always start off this week full of energy and by Friday I’m so tired. (Laughter.) Too many meetings, events, (inaudible). It’s – everything is packed into one place in one week. So there’s a lot to do.

QUESTION: Madam Secretary, do you think – do you think a compromise is possible on settlements before Sunday?

SECRETARY CLINTON: Well, I’m looking forward to talking to the President. And there are so many important issues that Lebanon is facing and the United States wants to be a very good friend and partner to Lebanon and the Lebanese people.

QUESTION: Thank you.

QUESTION: Do you think you’ll discuss the Lebanese track of the peace process. Obviously, you’ve said that that’ s a very important aspect of all of this.

SECRETARY CLINTON: Well, we’re going to be talking about whatever the President and I choose to talk about.

STAFF: Thank you, everybody. (Laughter.)
