    I've not been a fan of Hillary – she has been fantatsic as SoS. Looking back, I'm saddened I didn't vote for her in the primaries. She would never have bowed to a Saudi prince...

    I give her a B+ shes doing a great job I wish I heard a little more though. All the people who gave her a low score b/c of the past need to read this is hows shes doing now not 4 months ago.

    I LOVE Hillary!!! She is the best at everything she does. I give her an A++. I voted for her when she was running for NY Senate (what an awesome job she did for the Upstate region) also. I just loved the way she handled herself as a First Lady. She rocks!!

    I think this nation as far as our foreign affairs has been blessed again at a time when great leadership is required. To have a President that seems to have complete faith in his cabinet members. And his faith in Sec. Clinton is well placed, thank you Madame Sec, for taking the job.

    D. She is not in touch with reality on foriegn affairs. Lacks substance and is only pallatable by foriegn dignitaries because of her husband. As it was asked before... what has she done? Nothing but stay in rank. Come to think of it, I guess with her thats a good thing.

    I give Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton B. She has stated some contradictions when being interviewed regarding foreign policy that were in conflict to what the President had previously stated. I believe that she will get better and reflect the Commander in Chief's position as time goes by.

    She doesn't even deserve a grade. If Hillary had not attached herself to Bill Clinton's backside like a blood-thirsty leach back in the 70's, she would be a nothing today. The only reason she's in the cabinet is because Obama wanted to shut Bill up. She doesn't have half the brains that Condi Rice has.....who, I may point out, did NOT need an influential spouse to get her the gig.

    Obama has been amazing in the work on world issues. His ability to work with world issues and global heads of state. A grade of A is the right vote

    She is dedicated and taking hold. Let's not even discuss the past administration. A double FF would be generous for them.

    I gave her an A+. I think she's doing a fantastic job, and is happy doing what she's doing. Unfortunately there hasn't been too many focus on foreign issues to know whether to lower that grade or not. The focus has been more on the economy.
