THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY
Her story is the record of preparing her act by act for the unique demands of a significant life.
The best leaders have always adopted new paradigms, necessitating their departure from old forms.
Her tenure as Secretary of State has been characterized by poise, intelligence, humility, and even foresight. When responding to the emerging Arab Spring, she guided her government in supporting democratic aspirations as the groundwork for a new regional order. Benghazi should not and will not tarnish her legacy.
Historians will assess her works and arrive at different conclusions, as is their custom. All though must acknowledge in common her sincerity, desire to serve her country, and ambition to better the wider world. She has proven the effectuality of the female voice in world affairs, demonstrating for the next generation of women and girls they also can become accomplished actors in an equal world.
Hillary Rodham Clinton would make an excellent Secretary General of the United Nations.
Madame Clinton has faithfully discharged her duties. However, her formidable character will likely compel to her to fill the next creative void when the time is right.
