Singing the same tune: Clinton left on Friday for a weeklong trip to Asia, starting with four days in India. Relations between the United States and India have grown closer over the past decade, including a civilian nuclear power agreement completed in 2008. However, India was not included on the itinerary for Clinton's first trip to Asia in February, leading observers to speculate about how the Obama administration views India's role in Asia.
