"New, perhaps different"?

Hillary Clinton, in her confirmation hearing for Secretary of State, lays out some of that famous Obama "change" message when asked about Iran:
"We are not taking any option off the table at all, but we will pursue a new, perhaps different approach."
"New, perhaps different"? I admit, it is possible for something to be "new" and exactly the same; I buy a new half-gallon of milk every week or so, and week after week it's exactly the same. But when it comes to foreign policy, you really aren't allowed to use the words "new" and "perhaps different" in the same sentence. "New" and "different", yes. "New" and "perhaps different", no.
