    Hillary Clinton plays it safe with ‘smart power’ speech

    Hillary Clinton plays it safe with 'smart power' speech | MSNBC

    It was the right topic at the right venue for Hillary Clinton Wednesday morning at Georgetown University, but the timing was off. Poor weather and impending finals kept students from filling up the ornate Gaston Hall, and This time, when Clinton came to Georgetown to partake in a conference on “smart power,” the topic was as close to her heart as any. It was her guiding philosophy at State.

    Clinton defined the term Wednesday as “using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security,” while “showing respect” for other countries and actors on the world stage – “even for one’s enemies.” She also spoke about women, noting they often “bear the humanitarian load” of conflicts more than men. But she added, “Women are not just victims of conflict, they are agents of peace and agents of change.” She referenced the Northern Ireland Peace process, where women took a lead.
    her wonky foreign policy remarks left many disappointed who are hungry for something more from the likely presidential candidate.
    Hmmm, I wonder how she'll sell smart power during her campaign. How would she show respect to ISIS?

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    I sense almost no traction for her. She's a more-famous Mary Landrieu at this point.

    You're both right.
    I want to see her be interviewed by someone who will actually ask her what the hell was she thinking when she agreed to say the stupid things she has been saying.
    I'm afraid she's just a very bad candidate the media won't even be able to save.
    Now if Lizzie Warren decided to go for it you'd see absolutely intense media support from much of the media and silent support from the rest ... you know, don't report the bad stuff. We get that a lot now.

    She would be better off sticking with Obamacare.
