    WASHINGTON -- Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is convening an unprecedented mass meeting of U.S. ambassadors.

    The top envoys from nearly all of America's 260 embassies, consulates and other posts in more than 180 countries will be gathering at the State Department beginning on Monday. Officials say it's the first such global conference.

    The gathering comes at a time of crisis in Egypt that could reshape dynamics in the Middle East, fallout from leaked diplomatic documents and congressional calls for sweeping cuts in foreign aid.

    Although the meeting has been called to discuss U.S. foreign policy priorities for 2011, officials say Clinton plans to meet personally with ambassadors from front-line states to hear about developments on the ground. Officials also expect that specific concerns about the WikiLeaks revelations will be raised.

    Plus they get all expenses paid meals, have to bring their staffs along
    and probably will have all sorts of fun activities for evenings planned.
