Obama, Clinton mingle on Martha's Vineyard after foreign policy spat

By Jeff Mason VINEYARD HAVEN Mass. (Reuters) – They may or may not have hugged, but President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton rubbed shoulders on Wednesday at a party on Martha’s Vineyard after the former secretary of state criticized the foreign policy vision of her one-time boss. Clinton called Obama on Tuesday to say that her comments to Jeffrey Goldberg, a writer for the Atlantic magazine, were not meant as an attack on the president. In the Atlantic interview, published on Sunday, Clinton described U.S. policy in Syria as a failure and said Obama’s doctrine of “‘don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle” for a great nation. Her spokesman said Clinton, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, looked forward to “hugging it out” with Obama when the two attended the Wednesday evening party given by mutual friend and Washington power broker Vernon Jordan on the Massachusetts island, where the Obamas are vacationing.
