Hillary Clinton: State Dept. can get more done without public paying attention

By on 1.26.12 | 4:05PM

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton plans to step down if President Obama is re-elected, but she noted that the State Department could get more done if people aren't paying attention, according to Josh Rogin of Foreign Policy:

Clinton warned her employees that the election season would "suck up a lot of the attention" from foreign policy issues. "But the good news is, you know, maybe we can even get more done if they're not paying attention," she said. "So just factor that in."

The comment came as Clinton was announcing changes to expect during the upcoming year, including the drawdown in Afghanistan and a pledge to allow employees upgraded browsers.
