Below is a candid conversation with Samantha Power who made the "monster" comment. If any do not know who she is - Ms. Power is a 37 year old Pulitzer winning author for her book A Problem from Hell, which incidentally I picked up a week or so ago to read because I was so excited she was a part of the Obama campaign. My partner picked up her new book, Chasing the Flame, about the life of Sergio Vieira de Mello
She is a campaign rookie, true, but what saddens me is that she is exactly who we want running our foreign policy, a policy that is about what is right, not about profit and imperialism and neo-colonialism. I am saddened by the fact that she is not on the campaign with Obama. When will the same truth hold for the Clinton campaign? How many insults have come out of her camp and those people are still in the exact same position. It is disheartening.
