Secretary Clinton will be in the spotlight, literally, this Sunday morning. Back from Asia, she’ll be on NBC’s Meet the Press for the entire hour!
•Speaking of the spotlight, a New York Times headline today declares: “Asia Trip Propels Clinton Back into Limelight.” (And yes, I know that many of you say she never ever was out of the limelight — the “shadows” thing was all concocted.)
•Clinton has just “taken Asia by storm” with a tour that is “undeniably a success in public-relations and policy terms,” a college professor writes in a Scripps Howard News Service op-ed.
•Clinton is viewed as the most intelligent first lady in a Harris Poll that asked about 11 first ladies from Eleanor Roosevelt through Michelle Obama (minus Elizabeth Truman and Mamie Eisenhower for some reason). Regarding the 11 first ladies, 29 percent of respondents said Clinton was most intelligent; Roosevelt was second with 13 percent, and Obama was third with 11 percent.
•Regarding this week’s verbal jousting between Clinton and North Korea, a Washington Post Style article compares Clinton to the archetypal schoolyard “overachiever” and North Korea to the schoolyard’s “socially inept loner.”
•Hillary fans aren’t going to like this one: A Boston Globe editorial accuses Clinton of “rookie mistakes” during her Asia trip.
