Following Condi, Hillary Goes Robust

I have noted the too-many times Condoleeza Rice used the adjective "robust" (see here and here, for example).

Now, Hillary seems to be adopting herself to State Dept. lingo despite claiming otherwise:

As I said yesterday in the State Department, we are going to work toward robust diplomacy. And I challenged my colleagues in the State Department to think more broadly, more deeply, outside the proverbial box, to let us know the ideas you have that will make what you do more effective for us.


I have asked [Senator George Mitchell] to be the Special Envoy for Middle East Peace. He will lead our efforts to reinvigorate the process for achieving peace between Israel and its neighbors. He will help us to develop an integrated strategy that defends the security of Israel, works to bring an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that will result in two states living side by side in peace and security, and to achieve further agreements to promote peace and security between Israel and its Arab neighbors.
