i’ve been obsessing over this one for the last 24 hours:
WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton has decided to give up her Senate seat to become secretary of state in the Obama administration, making her the public face to the world for the man who dashed her own hopes for the presidency, confidants of Mrs. Clinton said Friday.
fortunately, there is a bit of a reprieve–hopefully in the midst of which obama will come to his senses:
Barack Obama appears intent on naming an experienced and centrist foreign policy team, with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of state and retired Marine Gen. James L. Jones as national security adviser, sources said yesterday.
A friend of Clinton’s said she is ready to accept an appointment that would make the former Obama rival his point person in tackling an array of international crises and restoring the United States’ influence around the world, a frequently stated objective of the incoming administration.
Although the Obama transition team and Clinton’s Senate spokesman said nothing has been finalized, her office for the first time officially confirmed that she is talking to Obama about the job. “We’re still in discussions, which are very much on track. Any reports beyond that are premature,” said Philippe Reines, Clinton’s spokesman and senior adviser.
for those who want to know why i object so vehemently to clinton’s possible position as secretary of state you may read previous posts here (just search her name) or you may read her own words on her entirely one-sided view when it comes to the zionist state. it’s all right here on her website.
or, perhaps matt gonzalez could serve as a reminder for us to recall what obama himself said about clinton:
Do you really want to vote for someone who has already voted to take away your civil liberties because of some vague wish that he’ll act differently as president? Obama himself, speaking of Sen. Hillary Clinton, made a remark that could just as easily apply to him, and, unwittingly makes the case for why no one should vote for him: “We can’t afford a president whose positions change with the politics of the moment. We need a president who knows that being ready on day one means getting it right from day one.” (Salem, OR, 3/21/08).
can someone please tell me, in all seriousness: where is the change?
