Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton: I Helped Restore U.S. Leadership In The World
Posted on 06/10/2014 6:16:05 AM PDT by maggief
To hear Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state and once and maybe future Democratic presidential candidate tell it, her new book "Hard Choices" isn't the kickoff to a 2016 campaign.
She still hasn't made up her mind about another run for the presidency, she told Renee Montagne, co-host of NPR's Morning Edition. It's more a review of the decisions she made as the nation's top diplomat.
That the book looks backwards is proof, she said, that it's not a campaign document because, echoing a often used line of her husband, former President Bill Clinton, "I'm experienced enough to know that political campaigns are about the future, not the past."
But she acknowledged that the book tour gives her a chance "to work really hard to get out around the country to talk about what's on people's minds." In short, it sounds like she's embarking on another listening tour of the kind she used to launch her career in electoral politics in 1999 before she ran for a U.S. Senate seat from New York.
In any event, a review of her years traveling the globe as secretary of state during President Obama's first term gives her the chance to define her accomplishments even as her Republican critics ask, "What achievements?"
Here are some interview highlights:
Her accomplishments: To hear Clinton tell it, she helped rebuild the U.S. image in the world after the George W. Bush administration badly mangled it.
"The most important thing I did was to help restore America's leadership in the world. And I think that was a very important accomplishment. We were flat on our back when I walked in there the first time.

Obama and Hillary have made such a mess of international relations. It will take years to repair the damage.
Well if so, she certainly did a terrible job of it.
To the rear! Charge!
It will take a Act of God to fix what they did.
Lol! She did what!? I don’t get it, is she practicing for her comedy stand up routine?
Remember, reality is whatever the mainstream press says it is. That’s why Hillary can say these things.
The open secret among Democrats, is that not all Democrats love the Clintons. There are Democrats who would like to take them out. Just as Obama took out Hillary in ‘08, in spite of her being “inevitable” then, there are Democrats who want to take out Hillary in ‘16. But they have not yet emerged.
The demoncraps I have been running into don’t like Bathhouse
The woman has to be on drugs to be this totally delusional. Read my lips: No. One. Respects. Us. Hillary. They can’t imagine how such a ship of fools was elected by the American people.
She’s got a huge gaggle of brainwashed people ready to rush out and buy her book, but she did nothing about US leadership.
Not one tiny bit.
Hillary Clinton is a screw-up.
She FUBARs everything she touches.
I think after Clinton, the commie dems don’t have a serious candidate for 2016 and that is why they will put her out there. By 2016 this nation will be beyond the tipping point so why take on a challenge that cannot be overcome? So, they put up Hitlery, she loses, and the dems go on for 4 years blaming the other party of ruining the country. Look at the tanned one’s approval ratings now. Even after all the scandals, the missteps, the racism et al the tanned one’s approval rating is over 40%, closer to 50 actually.
The electorate is brain dead here. We may be keeping up with this stuff but we are like a ship at sea with no radio.
Worse, the GOP, the alleged opposition, is led by a bunch of
tone deaf fools so even if the radio were working, they could not hear it.
I’m going to go pressure wash my eyes and read that headline again a little later. It’s not making sense.
Of course NPR would say that.
When will our tax dollars stop funding NPR?
She must be on drugs...................
Rrestored to what? We are no longer the shining city on the hill.
Can you stomach the thought of seeing THAT coming down the steps from AF1 for four (and prayerfully NOT eight) years?
Is this satire?
The higher ups don’t want to deal with the Clintons and the baggage they bring with them. Don’t be shocked if you see some other high profile Dems like Andrew Cuomo and Senator Pocohontas Warren getting more media coverage soon.
She hit her head again on a bottle of Jack Daniels.
What a sick, demented woman....
That’s all we need is another homosexual in office.
AHHHHH why didn’t it go the other way !?
That headline made me laugh outloud!! The guy in the stall next to me probably thinks he’s sitting next to a nut.
Wanna take a good look at Iraq today, Hillary?
The people buying her books are corporations and crony capitalists who owe her for all that State Department spending. They’ll buy crates of her books at full price and use them to heat their homes and factories.
What did you think of that division of labor video?
