Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and US Foreign Policy

Hosted by

Senator Hillary Clinton appeared before her colleagues on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee as Barack Obama's nominee to be Secretary of State. Why did Obama choose a former political rival to fill the most important post in his cabinet? What unique assets does she bring to Obama's foreign policy team? How will Bill Clinton and his foundation have to adjust to Hillary’s new role in world affairs? What have we learned in Clinton's confirmation hearing?  How will she influence the Obama approach to the crisis in Gaza and other problems around the world?
