Hillary's Emissaries

Hillary Clinton says that, if elected, she won't wait for her inauguration to start dispatching diplomats to try and repair what she thinks is the damage the Bush administration has done to America's stature in the world.

While campaigning in Iowa this weekend, Hillary told a couple hundred of people crammed into a Red Oak historical center about her plans, which I hadn't heard before.

"I will as soon as the election is over, not even waiting to be inaugurated, send emissaries our greatest diplomats, business leaders other Americans of stature around the world to send a very clear message, that friend or foe the United States will always defend our interests but that we want to lead the world into a better future and we welcome those who share our values to be part of that. And that we will listen as well as talk. That we will have diplomatic engagement."
