Best of the Web Today: The Axelrod Doctrine - WSJ

Best of the Web Today: The Axelrod Doctrine - WSJ: "Barack Obama's foreign-policy record won't catch up with his first secretary of state, at least not if she can help it. In an interview with The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg, Hillary Clinton is critical and occasionally scathing toward the man who hired her in 2009 after vanquishing her in 2008. "And for what it's worth," Goldberg adds, "I also think she may have told me that she's running for president [in 2016]." She didn't actually say so explicitly, but if she does run, let it be remembered that Goldberg was the first to see it coming.

Her harshest comment came in response to Goldberg's citation of a vulgar aphorism that "President Obama recently coined to describe his foreign-policy doctrine," according to Goldberg. Mrs. Clinton sanitized it in her response: "Great nations need organizing principles, and 'Don't do stupid stuff' is not an organizing principle.""
