On Wednesday night Charlie Rose sat down with current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former Secretary James Baker (under George Bush 1) for a revealing conversation about what it’s like to carry the weight of this powerful department squarely on one’s shoulders.  The hour-long discussion takes place inside the State Department in Washington, and among the topics discussed are America’s troubling relationship with Pakistan, the current situation in Egypt, how varying career directions before taking office can shape and influence a Secretary’s role and performance, and the dynamic that exists between a sitting Secretary and his/her President.  It’s an incredible hour and essential viewing for anyone even remotely interested in how America flexes its diplomatic muscle around the world.  To learn more about the U.S. State Department be sure to visit
