(Newser) – Hillary Clinton may have met with Burma's president earlier today, but the real highlight of her trip to the reclusive nation came at dinner time: She ate with longtime opposition leader and Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, notes the AP. The two women spoke of matters both personal (Clinton called her a personal inspiration, and Suu Kyi has read books by both Hillary and Bill) and political (including Suu Kyi's plans to run for office), adds the Washington Post. They are due to meet again tomorrow.
