A Newsmax panel says it is unlikely that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be too critical of President Barack Obama when it comes to his foreign policy.
"As secretary of state, she supported his foreign policy, which was natural, he is her boss. But she has not been very critical of him on foreign policy,'' David Drucker, senior congressional correspondent for The Washington Examiner, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.
"She has done her best in a sense to move away from her hawkish past, when she was a rather hawkish Democrat if you look at where Democrats were in the '90s and the early 2000s
"Looking ahead to a presidential bid of her own, you don't want to stoke the fires on the side of your liberal base, and she has been careful not to criticize the president overtly while he's still in office, and I just don't think that she's going to do anything that moves away from that.''

John Gizzi, Newsmax's White House correspondent, agreed.
"I don't think Hillary Clinton is going to say much because remember, she certainly needs Barack Obama, if nothing else, not to say anything bad about her as the nomination process approaches,'' Gizzi said.
"So, I tend to agree. She will say very little on this and certainly nothing that's critical of the administration.''
