Hillary Clinton hits dance floor; no medal for Romney horse; ‘sikh’ and ‘sheik’ mix-up (read-this roundup)

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton drank beer in Colombia.
Here’s what the Loop is reading Wednesday morning:

Secretary of the dance floor — Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been making diplomacy look fun lately — She swigs beer, she texts, and now she’s dancing again.

Backing the wrong horse — There’s no Olympic gold for Ann Romney’s horse, Rafalca. The dressage horse, part-owned by GOP candidate Mitt Romney and his wife, is out of medal contention in London.

In knots — It’s like that tongue-twister: “The sixth sick sheik’s sixth sheep...” Mitt Romney mistakenly said “sheik” (the Arab honorific) instead of “sikh” (the religion whose members were the target of a gunman’s attack in Wisconsin this week).
