The Washington Times reports that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to get the president to speak out against the situation in Iran. The article says:
Mrs. Clinton had been advocating the stronger U.S. response, but the president resisted. When he finally took her advice, the aides said, he did so without informing her first. This was the first known example of awkwardness between the two former rivals for the Democratic nomination for president since they made up following Mr. Obama's election. The disagreement also gave some insight into the Obama administration's foreign policy decision-making process five months into its term.
Apparently, Republicans weren't the alone in thinking that Obama's stance on Iran was too weak.
