Madelaine Allbright with Three Days to Go as Secretary of State

December 30, 2014 With Madelaine Allbright

During her last week in office (early 2001) she came to visit with us at WGN and here, in a longish excerpt, she does her “tour of the horizon” focusing on the outstanding foreign affairs problems she was about to hand over to her successor.
She was, of course , the first woman to fill that office and also the second of Jewish familial background. Like Kissinger, she is careful not to speak too favorably of the Israeli regime while managing to project an easy fluency in international politics.
