Will a FOMC rate rise have to wait for a greenback correction?

Last week, we summarized the case made by Richmond Fed President Jeffrey Lacker for a June rate rise. His key assumption was that inflation was heading back to 2% which is widely viewed as the Fed's objective. Yesterday, we heard what amounted to a counter argument from newbie Federal Reserve Governor Lael Brainard. According to a Reuters article, the governor indicated that headwinds still confront the economy. Those headwinds include the recent rally in the U.S. dollar.
 
The Fed governor's comments are noteworthy because she is a permanent member of the Fed's Open Market Committee which decides the direction of monetary policy.
