U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is in northern Cambodia, about as far away as one can get from the intense political battle going on back home.
As her husband and fellow Democrats campaign frantically ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections, the self-proclaimed ex-politician is spending Sunday visiting a rescue and rehabilitation center for child prostitutes and touring Cambodia's famed 12th century Angkor Wat temple complex.
Clinton is barred from partisan political activity while serving as America's top diplomat.
The former first lady, New York senator and presidential hopeful is in the midst of a two-week, seven-nation tour of the Asia-Pacific. She won't be back at work in Washington until a week after Election Day.
