The New York Times’ coverage of Secretary of State designate Hillary Clinton’s confirmation hearing was more celebratory than reportorial.
In today’s story, reporter Mark Landler chirped that in her appearance before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, “Mrs. Clinton showed a mastery of the issues that won praise from her fellow lawmakers, and outlined a muscular view of American foreign policy that she said would put diplomacy front and center in the Obama administration” (emphasis added).
Perhaps Landler could tell us what he means by “muscular foreign policy.” Her husband’s approach to foreign affairs, which Hillary says she had a hand in shaping, seemed more flaccid.
