(CNN) - The Obama transition talking points for Sen. Hillary Clinton's Tuesday confirmation hearing as secretary of state say she will stress "a renewal of American leadership" and a "revitalization of diplomacy to promote our security interests and advance our values." She will be introduced tomorrow by New York's senior senator, Chuck Schumer.
Talking points as relayed by a transition official follow after the jump:
–Senator Clinton is looking forward to the conversation with her colleagues. She has had the opportunity to speak with all of the committee members in the past few weeks and has appreciated the chance to discuss a range of issues. In addition to testifying, she is submitting answers to many of their questions in writing.
–We expect that she will reiterate that she and the President-elect believe that America must be smarter to be stronger. Senator Clinton believes in “smart power” – using all the tools of foreign policy that are at our disposal. She also believes, as does the President-Elect, that diplomacy must be at the forefront of US foreign policy, and that it must be balanced with military power in ways that work for the 21st century.
–Senator Clinton agrees with the President-elect that our country must be strong at home in order to be strong abroad - that our own progress depends on repairing our economy and working for shared economic growth and prosperity globally.
–The Obama Administration will pursue engaged, cooperative American global leadership consistent with our democratic values. This will mean reaching out to create stronger partnerships with our allies and working to forge new bonds around the world. It will also mean investing in our common humanity as a way to achieve greater security.
–Senator Clinton will speak about the importance of the State Department having the resources it needs to fulfill the critical demands of foreign policy in this new century and pursue the aggressive diplomacy of the Obama Administration.
–Senator Clinton will emphasize that she will actively work in cooperation with Congress on foreign policy. She will stress the importance of bipartisanship, and of decision-making that is based on a marriage of principle and pragmatism, not ideology.
