CBS’ Jamelle Bouie: Foreign Policy’s ‘Long Been’ Clinton’s ‘Wheelhouse’

‘It’s sort of a given that Democratic voters trust Hillary Clinton more on foreign policy’

BOUIE: "I think as far as the Democratic primary goes, I’m not sure that it matters all that much. It’s sort of a given that Democratic voters trust Hillary Clinton more on foreign policy. She was the Secretary of State. That’s long been her wheelhouse. I think for the general election, it matters quite a bit. Like Peggy said, Secretary Clinton had a hard time answering on the question of what do we do after Paris? And I think part of the problem is that she was Secretary of State during the rise of ISIS. And she’s hewing so closely to President Obama’s administration that she has no room to break out, despite the fact that there’s real evidence that Clinton has a differing view on these questions than Obama does."
