Up to now, it looked like Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was racing former SecState Condi Rice in a quest to rack up the most frequent-flier miles.Final destination: Leavenworth? (A guy can dream, can’t he?)
But it seems Clinton might have competition from an unlikely source: Attorney General Eric Holder, who has been quite the jet-setter of late. We hear he’s planning a trip next month to Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries. That intercontinental jaunt will cap off a summer that has included visits by the AG to Denmark, Germany, Guam, Malaysia and Singapore.
Just after a House subcommittee approved an effort to hold Holder in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over documents relating to the “Fast and Furious” controversy, the nation’s top lawyer boarded a plane bound for Copenhagen. The two-day trip also included a stop in Berlin.
Last month, he made a nine-day sweep that included Hono¬lulu, Guam, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

The Worst Attorney General in History is spending an awful lot of time offshore these days .
