Power Joins NSC
Samantha Power has a long and distinguished record as an advocate against genocide. In addition, Power is a very sharp foreign policy thinker. She has just been named to a position in the National Security Council. It is unfortunate that this is the title of the news story reporting her naming:
Professor who slammed Clinton will be Obama aide
I became familiar with Ms. Power when she was a supporter of (as was I) and an advisor to General Wes Clark during Clark's 2004 presidential run. Her thinking and instincts were excellent in my opinion. I hope that soon she can transcend the caricature as the "professor who slammed Clinton." It was obviously a terrible thing to have done but there is much more to Ms. Power than that. It is a disservice to Ms. Power that that unfortunate incident is what she is known for. Hopefully, her accomplishments in the Obama Administration will lead to treating that incident as the trivial event it was.
Speaking for me only
