Despite her department's devil-may-care attitude toward important symbolic-gesture translation projects, America gives Hillary Clinton high marks for her tenure as secretary of State so far. As she embarks on a series of "meetings" in Mexico to "coordinate on combating drug violence" (cough — spring break — cough), a new poll shows Hillary with an impressive 71 percent approval rating, besting President Obama's 64 percent. She has even won over a majority of Republicans. With all the headaches facing Obama these days, Hillary's consolation prize is actually looking like a pretty nice little gig ... for now. [CNN]
