Now that’s a great idea! Put a crazy misogamist (hater of marriage—a word that came long before the irrelevant word, “misogynist”) in charge of foreign relations. While they’re at it, they should cut the number of diplomats down to a handful or so.

Just tell Hillary that a man-hater in Iran was raped, and voila! The Iran problem will be dealt with. Obama will draft an army of millions to take care of it and pander to feminists.

I'm thinking it could be a great way to get her out of the way early. During the FBI background check so much information which would be dangerous to her future will be developed, and a few of the Republicans in the Senate will have the cojones to grill her on it and make an issue of it - Obama could shrug his should ers and say “Gee, I thought she's be a great Secretary of State, but..” as he withdrew her nomination. He kills three birds with one stone...

You think things would have been different if Reagan didn’t fire Haig?

I think Reagan had enough sense that da Bush's did not in dumping the Nixon/Ford era foreign policy advisers. Reagan also had enough sense to listen to all but act wisely in most cases. His stepping away from main stream foreign policy led the way to the changes he brought about. I don't think any Nixon/Ford era people involved in foreign policy under them could have accomplished what he did.

I'd say he drove both Haig and Schultz bonkers by not staying inside the foreign policy fishbowl. I'd credit Reagan with the foreign policy successes of his day. Remember he wisely sat back and let Israel end Saddam's nuclear program. Since the end of the Reagan era all administrations have tried in vain to dictate Israels affairs. In doing so they have perhaps stood in the way to what could have been a pretty good M.E. mop up.

No way Bill could keep his nose out of the process. jmo.

Sure he could, The One would just have to keep him supplied with hot and cold running Bimbos. Then video the proceedings and tell Bill to "cool it", or Hillary sees the videos.

This would actually be a good thing....

Remember, Hillary has been nothing but an unmitigated disaster at everything she has tried to do. You mix that with the fact that she will be the most heavily scrutinized SOS in history, and I see nothing but one blunder after another. She would never survive a full term, and she would be finally utterly destroyed politically.

Great idea-—gets her out of the Senate. After the Obmanination’s term is over she’ll be gone from politics.

I find that hard to believe.
I can’t believe she’d be anywhere in this Administration - too many ex-Clintonites would cause loyalty problems and lots of tension.

It’s not good enough for her heinous. The jobs already been held by two females before her. Hillary wants to win a job that no female has held before her.

Once we find out who all the Cabinet players are, we can start taking bets on which will be the first one caught up in a scandal, the first to meet their death in a mysterious plane crash, and which one will commit Arkancide.

Obama’s presidency looks like Clinton’s third term ,
just without Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky.
But, it’s still early.

"Sec of Defense?"

I don't think she'd accept any Cabinet position under Obama. Too much animosity between them. Remember, the press said she was being considered for the VP slot too, but Bambi never vetted her. Hillary still has several millions of dollars in campaign debt. She needs to be in a position to raise money to get rid of it. The only way she can do that is if she remains in the Senate. She's also got to be able to raise money for her 2012 Senate re-election.

Bomba is fulfilling his promise made to the homosexual and transgendered communities.

He stated, unequivocally, that high-level posts in the new administration would be filled these gentle folk.

(Those who practice bestiality and incest shouldn't worry. Some post will go to those gentle folk.)
