This is my blog that just went up on the Foreign Policy web site on Hillary Clinton's development speech today. There's a positive ending! Plus my wife likes it! MORNING UPDATE: News coverage of Hillary's speech was overwhelmingly dominated by her plans to visit New Zealand. This supports one of two theories: (1) there was indeed too much babble, eliminating any newsworthiness, (2) the media doesn't care about development.
UPDATE 2: Nick Kristof has a much more favorable take.
Audience check: am I too nasty? should we accept a certain amount of babble as unavoidable?
