Secretary Clinton -- Leader or Figurehead?

Kenneth Weisbrode, a historian at the European University Institute in Fiesole, Italy, has some free advice for Secstate Hillary Clinton. See Secretary Clinton -- Leader or Figurehead?

As for Clinton, she still appears unsure about the kind of role she wants. Until only very recently she appears to have confined herself to the quiet, bureaucratic parley and the goodwill tour.

In the meantime she has been upstaged by others, such as John Kerry and Joe Biden. This has led some critics to suggest a deliberate hedging strategy for a future political career, or for some other, unexplained motivation.
