Hillary's Power Play

The Sec State-desgnate seeks to enhance the power of the State Dept. at the expense of the DoD. Her philosophy? It takes a world. From the WSJ:

At a time of huge crises around the world, Sen. Clinton wants to take back some of the turf now held by the Defense Department. In a slap at President George W. Bush for increased reliance on force, or so-called hard power, Sen. Clinton will outline a broader arsenal of diplomatic tools that she calls "smart power," including economic agreements and social development that "invests in our common humanity" to achieve improved security, advisers say.
