Clinton: Obama Foreign Policy Yielding Dividends

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says the Obama administration’s foreign policy strategy of rebuilding alliances and applying so-called soft power is beginning to yield dividends. But Clinton warned that mounting government debt is beginning to erode U.S. power abroad.

Progress report

Clinton’s address to the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington amounted to a foreign policy progress report, a year and a half into the Obama administration.

She said the administration’s approach of rebuilding traditional alliances and acting multilaterally, as opposed to the Bush administration’s reliance on military power is beginning to show dividends.
