Philippe I. Reines (Born November 25, 1969) joined the State Department as a Senior Advisor to United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when she was sworn into office in January 2009, and was later promoted to the position of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State. In June 2009, National Journal featured Reines in its Decision Makers issues, an overview of "Key Players in the Obama Administration."
In its Dec 2009 profile of Hillary Clinton, Vogue magazine described him as Clinton's "Michael Clayton-esque image man and fixer." In March 2010, The Washington Post's WhoRunsGov included him in its Power 25: Press series, and in July 2010, Politico included Reines in their 50 Politicos to Watch list, categorizing him as a "Fixer."
Not all as been rosy though during his tenure at the State Department. On March 29 Politico ran a scathing piece blaming Reines for one of Clinton's early gaffes as Secretary of State, misspelling the Russian translation of the word "Reset" on a gag button presented to Clinton's Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov.
