Is  Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State turning into a cougar?

The London Times reports she has the hots for British Foreign Secretary David Millband - a mere 18 years her junior at 44.

The Times reports that Hillary met David at the NATO meeting in Brussels yesterday and greeted him with "an affectionate arm rub" and a "series of coquettish glances."

The cougar connection was first revealed in American Vogue last month when Hillary admitted to the fatal attraction.

She joked about a crush on Millband after hearing his English accent on the telephone. "If you saw him it would be a big crush,” Mrs Clinton, 62, said.

“I mean, he is so vibrant, vital, attractive, smart. He’s a really good guy. And he’s so young!”

For his part Milliband says he likes Hillary too - very much. The Foreign Secretary says she is “delightful to deal with one on one”.

Milliband has been called the next Tony Blair and is a likely leader of Labor if Gordon Brown is defeated in the next election.

And if Hillary ran again for president and Millband was prime minister ? ...well anyway it might give a whole new meaning to the term "special relationship" and "Transatlantic alliance."

Yesterday Mrs Clinton stated after meeting Millband : “We are in this together. And only together can we succeed.” She was talking about Afghanistan -- I think .
