CLINTON CONFIRMATION: U.N. Reform?
“The U.N. must reform,” Clinton says. “It has to become more transparent, more efficient and we will press for those changes.

It’s got to be a two-track commitment.” Streamline the operations, modernize the systems “and then we have to do our part, so we don’t” lose credibility.
