The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: A media roundup of Hillary Clinton's Foreign Policy Speech

So here is the kicker. What we have all been waiting for. The media reaction of Hillary's speech. Well, maaaybe not what we've been waiting for. In fact, I'm definately NOT holding my breath waiting for the 5 star review. But alas, here we are in the aftermath of it all.

To help us all sort out different media reactions I complied a list of links to different articles written from a variety of different sources on Hillary Clinton's big policy speech. I have NOT read them all, so these may be much of a surprise to you all as they will be to me.
