Hillary settling in

Posted By on Fri, May 1, 2009 at 2:35 PM

Some of our readers might find this NYT piece on former First Lady and current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton interesting.  Apparently, she's making the transition from presidential candidate and former Obama rival to her new post quite smoothly.  Aides describe Clinton's relationship with the president as "warm."  

In recent weeks, Mrs. Clinton has stepped up on key issues: warning Pakistan about the Taliban; orchestrating the first face-to-face contact between the Obama administration and Iran; and throwing Cuba off balance with warm words about restoring ties with Havana...

At 11 p.m. last Saturday, after 13 hours of meetings in Baghdad, Mrs. Clinton’s aides dozed on the military transport plane flying back to Kuwait. She sat alone at the front of the plane’s dimly-lighted cargo bay, squinting as she plowed through a pile of briefing papers.

“I lug them everywhere,” Mrs. Clinton said, noting that she had not had time to watch a movie or read a book in the last 100 days.
