Clinton Was More Hawkish Than Obama

"In her final weeks as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton wrote a private memo to President Obama warning that relations with Russia had hit a low point and the heralded 'reset' in relations was over, according to people who saw the document," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"Mrs. Clinton, if she runs for president, likely will lean heavily on her experience as the nation's top diplomat. Her memo, written in January 2013, illustrates two striking features of her four years in the post: She was often more hawkish than the White House she served, and at some key moments was ineffectual at swinging policy her way."
