Adviser Who Insulted Clinton Has Role in Transition
By Michael D. Shear
Samantha Power, the Harvard professor who was forced to resign from Barack Obama’s presidential campaign last spring after calling Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton “a monster,” is now advising the president-elect on transition matters relating to the State Department — which Clinton is slated to head. Link to the full Washington Post article.
Professor Samantha Power in her campaign role as foreign policy adviser to Barack Obama, admittedly was naive to allow herself to become trapped into commenting personally to the Scottish media about Hillary Clinton.
However I do agree that she was dead right in her assessment of Clinton as a person.
American’s can only hope that her advice to Obama on future American foreign policy behind closed doors, is just as frank, honest and on the button accurate.
