Clinton as Secretary of State? Obama’s First Faux Pas

Filed under: People, Politics — cynicalsynapse @ 11:21 pm

OMG! I didn’t think Obama was a credible presidential candidate by virtue of his being a first-term Senator from Illinois. Now he’s picked New York’s junior Senator, the Wicked Witch of the East, to be Secretary of State! She’s annoying, obnoxious, and inexperienced.

Has everyone forgotten she moved to New York just to run for Senate? Has everyone forgotten Hilary’s most dramatic foreign policy experience is the sniper fire she didn’t really come under in Bosnia, 1996? Does anyone not see she’s just an opportunist, willing to say whatever she thinks people want to hear?

During the campaign, Clinton trashed Obama’s foreign policy experience. Yet, she really had none of her own! In fact, Hillary wasn’t even on the short list in October.

Beyond such tame locations as Bosnia, Clinton’s foreign policy expertise appears to miss the intricacies conditions between Pakistan and Afghanistan. For anyone who doesn’t know, this is the hotspot of the Global War on Terrorism these days. How this plays out is key to the next US president’s term.

In October, Mark Nickolas saw Hillary, at best, as a second-tier candidate for Health and Human Services or as a third choice for Attorney General. So, how does she end up with Secretary of State? How much change is Obama really looking for?
