Clinton and Kissinger

Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2010

I'm glad Graeme Dobell at the Interpreter flagged this Newsweek joint interview with Hillary Clinton and Henry Kissinger, because it's a pretty fascinating discussion of the mechanics of the job, sprinkled with a healthy dose of the mental preparation that goes into it as well.

One thing that caught my eye was the list of long-term trend lines that Clinton mentioned watching, issues about which regular readers of WPR will be pretty well-informed: food security (here and here, for instance), the geopolitics of the Arctic (here and here), global health governance, and EU energy policy. Nice to see that the WPR editorial line fits in nicely with the strategic vision necessary to guiding foreign policy.
