Samantha Power Returns

Power gets a White House job

 

Some good news for Samantha Power, author and expert on genocide and humanitarian intervention. She will be an Obama aide.

Power, a noted human rights expert who won the Pulitzer for her 2008 book “Chasing the Flame: Sergio Vieira de Mello and the Fight to Save the World” about the late U.N. diplomat, made headlines last March during the height of the fierce fight for the Democratic presidential nomination when she called Clinton “a monster” in an interview with a Scottish newspaper. Her remarks set off angry exchanges about the tenor of Obama’s campaign. 

A few hours after her comments were published, Power announced her resignation, saying the remarks were inexcusable and contradictory to her admiration for Clinton.
