In her most frequently cited article,[4] Clyne criticized President Obama's choice of Yale Law School dean Harold Koh as the top legal officer of the United States Department of State.

Clyne graduated in the Class of 2003 at Yale University and wrote for the Yale Daily News.[5] In her closing "Senior Perspective" column for the student paper, she wrote "I wrote my first column because I was enraged by the lack of patriotism displayed at Yale in the wake of Sept. 11."[6]
