US Audio Feature: Assessing Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State...and as a Presidential Candidate --- Scott Lucas with the BBC

I spoke with BBC Radio 5 Live's Morning Reports about US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as she steps down today as Secretary of State --- and, probably, as she soon prepares a run for the Presidency in 2016.

"Clinton was most effective where she was a known quantity and where America was a known quanity. She was able to maintain a stable relationship with China, She was able to maintain a stable relationship with Europe.

Where Clinton has come up short, and indeed the entire Obama Administration --- I don't think they get it on the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia. They keep trying to position America at the centre of what's happening, and America doesn't necessarilyn hold that power to change everything. Clinton can't wave a wand and make this a US-led world."

The discussion begins at the 17:43 mark.
