It’s hard not to see in the publicizing of the endorsement a 
less-than-subtle hint of what a Clinton administration foreign policy 
would look like, however — one that ruthlessly prioritizes US strategic 
and political interests at the expense of peace, human rights, and the 
lives of poor people in foreign countries.

Say what you will about Clinton’s shifting political beliefs over the 
course of this election and her entire career, but she’s been fairly 
consistent on foreign policy, pushing the kind of unapologetically 
interventionist approach that made her the darling of hawks long before 
Trump came along.

And like Negroponte, she has both her own dubious history in Honduras 
and has backed both NAFTA and the TPP (at least until she — maybe — 
changed her mind about the latter). On these issues, they’re kindred 
political spirits.
