Hilary Clinton discusses plan for revitalizing foreign policy diplomacy mission.
Wired PR News.com – At a confirmation hearing on Tuesday, the soon to be Secretary of State, Hilary Rodham Clinton, discussed her intentions for revitalizing the foreign policy diplomacy mission for America. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Clinton spoke of using a “smart power” strategy for Middle East relations speaking before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Clinton is quoted as stating to the Committee in the AP report, “America cannot solve the most pressing problems on our own, and the world cannot solve them without America… The best way to advance America’s interest in reducing global threats and seizing global opportunities is to design and implement global solutions. This isn’t a philosophical point. This is our reality.”
Clinton also criticized the Bush Administration for their purported heavy reliance on military implementation of foreign policy. The committee is expected to decide Thursday on Clinton’s nomination approval. As noted in the report if approved, she may be fully confirmed by the Senate on Inauguration Day, next week.
