Back during the Democratic primaries of 2008, Hillary Clinton had a clever idea: make an appeal to evangelical Christian voters. And why not?

Re "Stellar, but short of spectacular," Jan. 28 Being of the opinion that Hillary Rodham Clinton is among the best secretaries of State, I was completely taken aback by the article's finding that although she is very well thought of by the American public and the president, many so-called foreign policy experts don't think too highly of her performance. Why should anyone pay attention to what these "experts" think? It happens that she has been dealing with many difficult and diverse problems, and she has come through very well.
