On a related note:
-Secretary of State-designate Hillary Rodham Clinton vowed Tuesday to
renew U.S. leadership through a "smart power" mix of diplomacy and
defense. ...
Borrowing a phrase meant to signal a move away from the militarization
of U.S. foreign policy, Clinton said, "We must use what has been called
`smart power,' the full range of tools at our disposal," she said. "With
`smart power,' diplomacy will be the vanguard of foreign policy."
