Or. Perhaps. Maybe he'll have had her resign her Senate seat and then he'll give her enough rope to hang herself by cocking up in the State Department, and then when the mid-terms are past in two years time, he'll sack her. She'll then have to decide whether she gives up, or runs for a Congressional seat in 2012 or runs against him.

Honestly, 'DM', you should have been a politician! Incidentally, I read somewhere that poor Master Obama has already developed a tic in his right eye due to stress. Can't help wondering if it will spread to Dr. Strangelove proportions.

Not that I disagree with you Mr. Duff, heck I've even sent a link or two to our esteemed e-pal.

Actually I rather attribute Okra'a success in no small part to this guy anyway. Back during our primaries he went so far as to advise Republicans to cross over and vote for Hillary. I suppose his "strategy," well cross that out, I suppose his "thinking" was that he could mobilize the Republicans better if Billary was on the ticket.

I suppose Rush might've been under the effects of oxycodone.


Senator Clinton MUST resign her Senate seat to accept a cabinet post. The Sec of State has a prohibition against partisan politics suporting the President to maintain at least the appearance of impartiality. I do wonder what her plan is because this will cut her political strength. I suspect she is vying for Vice President in the second term and a lock on 2016.

But I do not think it is a good appointment. One she still has two much clout to be fired so she can dictate to the president. One sign of an effective Secretary of State is a complete meeting of the minds with the president. If Whitehall sees any blue space between them they will drive wedge. And so will every one else. One of the better suggestions I have read is that Obama is not really interested in foreign relations and he is outsourcing it to the Clintons.

But who knows, maybe I will be pleasantly surprised.
