Analysis Clinton's Resignation ­is Netanyahu's Missed Opportunity

The prime minister has lost an important partner in Washington with the departure of Hillary Rodham Clinton, as no U.S. secretary of state has known Israel and the Israelis as well as Clinton.

On Friday Hillary Rodham Clinton left her State Department office in Washington for the last time. In four years she has traveled nearly a million miles and visited 112 countries, more than any other U.S. secretary of state. For Israelis and Palestinians, Clinton's exit is a sad departure.
