October 2001: 'Realists hold that foreign policy is about relations between nation states, not about the political, economic or human-rights conditions within particular countries.

In a Foreign Affairs article last year, future national security adviser Condoleezza Rice urged "a focus on power relationships and great-power politics," implicitly criticizing the Democrats for their preoccupation with soft transnational issues.'http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A31249-2001Oct21.html

QUOTE: The article in The Atlantic, by Anne-Marie Slaughter, a Princeton professor who recently left a job at the State Department, added to a renewed feminist conversation that is bringing fresh twists to bear on longstanding concerns about status, opportunity and family. Unlike earlier iterations, it is being led not by agitators who are out of power, but by elite women at the top of their fields, like the comedian Tina Fey, the Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg and now Ms. Slaughter. In contrast to some earlier barrier-breakers from Gloria Steinem to Condoleezza Rice, these women have children, along with husbands who do as much child-rearing as they do, or more.
