US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Monday she expects an emotional experience when she travels to Bethlehem this week. "I'm really looking forward to going to Bethlehem," she told reporters at her Jerusalem hotel after two days of meetings with Israeli and Palestinian officials aimed at preparing a US-hosted peace conference this fall.
