Hillary Settles Into New Role


The NY Times has an interesting read about Hillary Clinton’s first 100 days as Secretary of State:

For Mrs. Clinton, the biggest challenge has been mental: absorbing a mountain of information on issues ranging from the Middle East to the race for fossil fuels in the Arctic Circle.

At 11 p.m. last Saturday, after 13 hours of meetings in Baghdad, Mrs. Clinton’s aides dozed on the military transport plane flying back to Kuwait. She sat alone at the front of the plane’s dimly lighted cargo bay, squinting as she plowed through a pile of briefing papers.

“I lug them everywhere,” Mrs. Clinton said, noting that she had not had time to watch a movie or read a book in the last 100 days.

The bottom line, is Clinton has “worked hard to be a good soldier” in the Obama administration, as many of her supporters including myself thought she would.
