She's been a pretty good secretary of state. But given that Obama has been
a big disappointment, I don't want to get duped by another disappointing
Her influence in such areas as the opening of Burma, the liberation of Libya,
the isolation of Syria, and the toughest sanctions on Iran in history is there
for any fair minded person to see (google). And most agree she was key in
rebuilding relationships that were severely damaged by eight years of the
unilateral machismo that was the Bush foreign policy.Even some of
her staunchest critics admit as much. Here’s what Brit Hume had to say
about her tenure, and coming from him this is as high praise as Mr.’s
Ailes & Murdoch (his bosses) would likely tolerate. “She
has certainly been industrious,” Hume said. “She has visited 112
countries. Her conduct as secretary of state has been highly dignified. She does
her homework. There have been no gaffes or blunders.”Please

Being female has nothing to do with being fit or unfit for the office of
President. It's reverse discrimination to push a corrupt leader to power
just because she is female. The damages that Ms. Clinton has done --and aims to
do-- are nothing to be taken lightly. She tried very, very hard to pass the
U.N. Law of the Sea which would have taken away U.S. sovereignty over its own
sea raights. She is all for the socialistic Lean Forward campaign, where the
collective aims to takes charge of children and so parents are denied rights
over their children. She is more interested in the power of the U.N., it seems,
than the power of the U.S. She is in many ways as much a threat to
Constitutional government as Obama. I am disappointed in the Deseret News for
publishing this ridiculous piece.
Help me - I've fallen off my chair reading this, I'm laughing so
I would have voted for her over Obama, but not now. I would not vote for anyone
in his administration, past or present.
Better that anything the republicans will put up. I can't wait to use the
"not enough experience" routine against the republican candidate.
Well Kathleen Parker, it wouldn't surprise me if you wrote a similar
article back in 2008 about how Barack Obama could save the world. How's
that working out for ya Kathy?
Tyler DPlease list her Secretary of State Accomplishments. Because
all but the few rabid supporters of hers say that her stint as Secretary of
State yielded little after 4 years. And Benghazi will always be the thing she
is most remembered for. She was all over the middle-east during her tenure, and
look at what we have now. If anything, her being Secretary of State showed that
she is probably the most over rated intellect and leader in America. That
hopefully will be why most Americans will not want her to be President. That
and having seen what happens when they elect THE most over rated intellect and
leader ever, namely Barack Obama.
"Here's a thought: She can save the world."I'm
gonna be sick to my stomach.
Terrific editorial! It is time for women to step up to the plate and help guide
their nations and societies. After all, are we really pleased with the job the
men have done? No. It is time for equal partnership between men and women, and
having a smart, pragmatic woman at the head of what is still the world's
greatest power, maybe things will finally change for the better. Go Hillary
I am not convinced that empowering women is the course we need to take
now-a-days. I'm not saying that we don't have discrepancies at high
levels and high positions. But since the % of women in college is now out of
balance with the # of men (most universities have the % at 60 or 70% women to
only 40 or 30% men), we will naturally have more women in key positions given
time. I think our years and years of focusing on empowering women have paid
off. Girls are engaged in schools and boys aren't as much. In
fact if anything, we might need to start empowering young men (and getting them
off video games and drugs and out of gangs). We are in danger of heading toward
the problem that England has. They have a generation of young men that are
called the Angry Lost generation because none of them could get into the good
schools and they are unemployed. In England the universities peaked at like
75-80% female to only 25-20% male ratio.
Hillary Clinton will make a great president. Her influence and capability to
engage the power of women could transform the world. Hillary 2016.
The author’s own “Hillary hyperbole” aside, there is a direct
correlation between the empowerment of women and stable, prosperous societies (a
few oil-rich sheikdoms notwithstanding). Not only is it the most
permanent way to reduce poverty – and why Mother Teresa’s well-
meaning efforts & views were so misguided – but when a society begins
using all the talents of 50% of its population, its productivity soars.And Benghazi aside, all but the most rabid partisans agree Hillary was an
effective Secretary of State. Some have said she turned out to be more of a hawk
Mountanman,you are correct in pointing out why hillary is unfit for the
presidency, but you have to admit, she would have been a whole lot better than
what we have now.Once again, Ms. Parker shows her true liberal
colors, regardless of what party affiliation others say she claims. There she
goes, claiming hillary as the next coming of the messiah.
Cattlegate scam, White water real estate caper, missing White House documents
debacle, Benghazi cover-up and lies, and a failed Secretary of State foreign
policy. With "leadership" like this, government corruption will be a
major part of our everyday life!
