it is the governmental equivalent of solving a crossword puzzle It is essential to successful statecraft however–a point that George W Bush didn’t seem to understand until his second term in officeAmid the daily concussion of press coverage during crises Clinton battles for the free world comma by comma At times as in the negotiations over whether to use military force in Libya she loses perspective She begins highly skeptical about the efficacy of a strike against the Gaddafi regime which is threatening to massacre civilians in Benghazi She asks the right questions: "Who were these rebels we were aiding and were they prepared to lead Libya if Gaddafi fell" She sides with Defense Secretary Robert Gates–always a safe bet–against the White House aides who favor intervention Then she changes her mind lured by the siren song of multilateralism The Arab League wants US military action in Libya–that’s a breakthrough The Europeans especially the French are ready to roll She never says explicitly that she changes her mind–Gates says she does in his memoir–but it seems that Clinton has fallen for the promise of closer cooperation with the normally intransigent Arabs and the unusual willingness of the Europeans to take up arms Of course within days the Arab League criticizes the US-organized bombing campaign and the Europeans don’t have the military wherewithal for a sustained fight She also neglects discussing the consequences of her decision: the anarchy that is now Libya the rule by militias that eventually results in the murder of US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others in Benghazi (Her chapter on Benghazi is comprehensive and logical though few of the Fox hounds who see the issue as a matter of theology not facts will buy it)Clinton can be selectively disingenuous Her chapter on Middle East negotiations dwells on the overreaction in the region and in the press when on Halloween night in 2009 in Jerusalem she calls "unprecedented" Israel’s offer of a 10-month freeze on West Bank settlement except for Jerusalem And yes it may well have been unprecedented in technical terms but other words more accurately describe the Israeli move: partial grudging unacceptable The rest of the world considers Israel’s settlement building in contested areas an illegal provocation But there is a more troubling and personal subtext here Clinton doesn’t mention it but she had established–and perhaps overstated–the Obama Administration’s hard line against the illegal settlements five months earlier when she’d said "[The President] wants to see a stop to settlements–not some settlements not outposts not ‘natural growth’ exceptions . That is our position" Her acceptance of Israel’s partial freeze was a retreat from that hard line a public retreat that dismayed the White House "Why does she do that" a senior Administration official asked me at the time referring to her initial harder-than-necessary position and later "unprecedented" retreatBecause she is human She does not always come equipped with a natural politician’s body armor or habitual flight to the anodyne She has an advocate’s fervor–especially when it involves women and children She’s got a temper She displays it in Africa when asked about her husband’s position on a complicated World Bank issue a question that seems to denigrate her importance "Wait you want me to tell you what my husband thinks . My husband is not Secretary of State" She knows this is wrong and apologizes quickly to the young man who asked the question But I would guess that one of the reasons Clinton seems so buttoned-up in public is a fear that she’ll unleash an arrant display of imperfection Unfortunately this deprives the public of her wicked sense of humor and commonsense candor–which is on occasional display but on a very short leash in Hard Choices She is happy to admit her glaring well-known mistakes like her support for the war in Iraq But she is wary of copping to lesser if more telling diplomatic misjudgments–on Libya or her support for the second Afghanistan surge Again Gates’ book is more candid: Clinton supported an even larger number of surge troops than he did She does not mention that in Hard ChoicesShe admits to disagreements with President Obama–on whether to arm the Syrian rebels for example–but the disagreements are ridiculously civil and vague especially when compared with the blue rages that Gates describes himself throwing in his memoir The only memorable verbal scuffles she describes are with foreigners And these are either resolved over time or not equablyThat the Hard Choices book-tour extravaganza has been a bit of a bomb has more to do with the public atmosphere than it does with the book which is a cut above the sort of thing you’d expect from a Secretary of State–although several cuts below Gates’ riveting candor Its most important lessons–about patience management the importance of details the slow building of personal relationships–are precisely the skills that we seem to ignore in the public arena these days We are impatient with anything beyond simple declarative sentences the more hortatory the better: "Assad must go" But diplomacy and good government exist in a mind-numbing haze of clauses and nuance Clinton makes the case that she has mastered the placement of commas and that she has the patience to negotiate with opponents foreign and domestic That is the purpose of the book: to demonstrate that she would bring these quiet attributes to the presidency In this moment of blare and paralysis it is a subtly clever argument to make Too subtle perhapsRalph Fiennes,Unwed mothers in India applying for a passport for their child will have to reveal how the child was conceived and specify whether they were raped.
