has written off any chance of becoming president when she said in a Wednesday speech that America must have empathy for its enemies, said Lt. Col. Oliver North.
In a speech at Georgetown University, Clinton said "smart power" is using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security.
"Trying to understand, insofar as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view," Clinton said.

"Those words coming out of someone who intends to become commander-in-chief are not just naïve and utopian, it's irrational," North said Thursday on Fox News Channel's
"On the Record with Greta Van Susteren."
"Think about Dec. 7, 1941 and then FDR going to the Congress of United States the next day saying, 'We need to have more empathy for Japan.'"
Van Susteren said she didn't have to go back that far.
"Think of Boko Haram. Think of James Foley being beheaded by ISIS," Van Susteren said.
Van Susteren noted that the words sounded more like something a diplomat would say rather than a president. The former secretary of state who is the likely Democratic frontrunner for president in 2016 has been criticized by liberals for being too much of a hawk.
"That was anything but hawkish," Van Susteren said.
North said it wasn't a mere tilt to the left for the doves.
"This is unilateral disarmament," he said. "This is not someone who's a write-in candidate. She just wrote off being president of the United States."
