Today, with a nomination from the current NZ Prime Minister, she has entered the race to be the next UN Secretary-General. I know there are other candidates, and - with my diplomatic background - I know as well as any that these things are rarely chosen on the basis of who is the best candidate, but always on political wheeling and dealing. If appointed, she would be the best qualified Secretary-General in history. And it is time there was a woman at the head of the UN.
I doubt she could have achieved what she has achieved if she had children. I just hope that this isn't held against her.
