Albright set a precedent as the first woman secretary of state when she served under President Clinton. Today, the Obama administration faces a multitude of foreign policy concerns on every front; economic, social, political, environmental. As Secretary Hillary Clinton – now the third female in this position – settles into her new role, what lessons can Albright impart from her tenure in the State Department?
