Hillary Rodham Clinton - Secretary of State

Smart Power
“We must use what has been called “smart power”: the full range of tools at our disposal -- diplomatic, economic, military, political, legal, and cultural -- picking the right tool, or combination of tools, for each situation. With smart power, diplomacy will be the vanguard of foreign policy. This is not a radical idea. The ancient Roman poet Terence, who was born a slave and rose to become one of the great voices of his time, declared that “in every endeavor, the seemly course for wise men is to try persuasion first.” The same truth binds wise women as well.”

On January 21, 2009, Hillary Rodham Clinton was sworn in as the 67th Secretary of State of the United States. Secretary Clinton joined the State Department after nearly four decades in public service as an advocate, attorney, First Lady, and Senator. In her welcoming remarks to State Department employees, Secretary Clinton stated: "President Obama set the tone with his inaugural address. And the work of the Obama-Biden Administration is committed to advancing America's national security, furthering America's interests, and respecting and exemplifying America's values around the world."

Secretary Clinton's Remarks
The work of Foreign Policy

"For women her own age, who had put their most audacious ambitions on hold while they raised a family, she was a promise that there was still time to do something amazing, even if you were starting over at 40, or 50, or—what the heck, it’s the 21st century—60. When she ran for president, so many people expected her to deliver that holy grail of a woman in the White House. She lost, but in the process, she did something that might be just as important. She got the country used to the idea of a female president. It seems normal to us now, and that’s Hillary’s gift." Gail Collins - Columnist, New York Times

A symbol of hope for many, Mandela is also a former winner of the Nobel Peace Prize.
