The Clinton style returns to US diplomacy

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Dec 05, 2008

 During the years of the Clinton presidency, US foreign-policy officials were frequently at odds with the Vatican, and the battles were sometimes brutal. Writing on The Catholic Thing, Austin Ruse recalls the memorable battles over the Cairo conference and the gratuitous slaps at the Holy See. The same characters who showed their contempt for Pope John Paul II in the 1990s will be back in power in the Obama administration, Ruse argues, led by incoming Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. It's not comforting, by any means. But the column is worth reading, if only so that loyal Catholics can brace themselves for the onslaught.
