Clinton: Seeking State Department Legacy

27 November 2013 |permalink | email article

Secretary of State John Kerry, at a recent symposium on Afghan women at Georgetown, praised his predecessor, Hillary Rodham Clinton, whom he referred to “Madam Secretary-Senator-First Lady-Everything. Kerry’s remarks drew applause from the crowd but they also pointed to a dilemma for Clinton in an effort to define her tenure as secretary of state. But some people close to Clinton worry that because of her high profile given to her work for women’s rights, and the headlines now being generated by the hyperkinetic Kerry, her efforts on trickier diplomatic situations may have been eclipsed. Her biggest chance to shape how she is views may be through her memoir, which is due next summer. Two of her aides, to who worked with her at the State Department, are assisting with the book. Republicans argue, more generally, that scrutiny of her time at the State Department is overdue.
