The fact that she and the President met and talked is, in my mind good. It says that he is getting alternative views. The fact that the discussion didn't leak is also good news. A little discipline is always a good thing.
Quoting from the article:
Asked to grade his foreign policy, she refused.I also thought it was interesting that her new book also comes in a "young adult" version.
"I've said very many times that I may not agree with everything that the administration has done, but I also know that it's a lot harder in there than it is out here," she said.
"Nobody needs to have people who've been there chirping at you about what you're not doing right, because you can't possibly know the whole range of considerations on any given day unless you're in."
