Planned Parenthood to Honor Hillary Clinton

Even though her job description focuses on foreign affairs, Hillary Clinton will participate in a domestic political event to receive an award from Planned Parenthood Friday night.

"The 2009 Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) Margaret Sanger Award, the organization's highest honor, will be presented to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who has been a champion of women's health and rights throughout her public service career," according to the release.

Politico's Ben Smith says it signals a "continuing the Obama administration's forceful, if understated alliance with abortion-rights groups."
