  •  She's no neocon (7+ / 0-)

    She has a long record of working in opposition to genocide, and I think that's absolutely genuine on her part. It's the solutions being proposed that are the problem, and I don't know if they're coming from her or from elsewhere. Putting a genuine concern for human rights higher in the rank of how foreign policy is decided would be a good thing, but with the disastrous inexperience both she and Kerry are showing diplomatically, they're destroying any prospect for it going forward, I'm afraid.
