Celebrated Ronald Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan said Sunday that Hillary Clinton is trying to prove she mattered in her tenure as President Obama’s first secretary of state.
“I think part of the purpose of this book,” Noonan said about Clinton’s upcoming Hard Choices, “is to refute the idea out there that as secretary of state she was not a significant player in the creation of U.S. foreign policy.”
Clinton’s book, which is due in June, will reportedly focus on her tenure running the State Department. Prior to that she served as first lady during President Bill Clinton’s administration and as a U.S. senator from New York State.
Noonan noted that Clinton must counter a popular impression that she was a placeholder secretary during a less-than-exemplary period for American statecraft.
