Kissinger vs. Hillary

Niall Ferguson writes in the latest Newsweek:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton thinks the Chinese government is "scared" of the Arab Spring. "They're worried," she told Jeffrey Goldberg in the latest Atlantic, "and they are trying to stop history, which is a fool's errand. They cannot do it."

These are words--intemperate, undiplomatic, and very likely counterproductive--that you cannot imagine being uttered by her predecessor Henry Kissinger.

Yes. I suppose this is why I like Clinton more than Kissinger.
