CHICAGO – Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has engaged three prominent lawyers to help President-elect Barack Obama vet her candidacy for secretary of state even as some insiders criticized the pick and advisers to the former first lady said she was weighing whether to take the job if Obama offered it.

I wonder if they’d do us a favor and “vet” Hussein Obama while they’re at it.

I wouldn’t think that Clinton being Secretary of State would help her future presidential ambitions. I thought that since Obama didn’t pass his commander in chief test, that he will be a failure, and she doesn’t want to be identified with a failure. She may not have a better image in 8 years, having been Obama’s Secretary of State, assuming she tries to run for president in 2016. If the public reacts badly to Obama’s presidency, the Democrat brand could be damaged in the future, just as the perceived failures of Bush and Republicans have made this election cycle tough for Republicans in general.

The Obamanation is above all that. You can’t expect him to to be treated like a mere mortal.

What's wrong with this sentence? I'd like to pick who will interview me for my next job. WTF? Hillary's completed Obamapplication would make for an awesome tragic-comedy!

Certainly she's qualified. She's been the WIFE of an important man, and she's been a senator for a few years.

That makes her eminently qualified for freaking SECRETARY OF STATE of the UNITED STATES.

Geez, where's my wine bottle? We're living in Oz.

Can you imagine if Hitlery became SoS?

In one New York second, the Bill and Hillery show would wrest international affairs out of Zer0’s hands, and they would become the only voices on the stage.

Unbeleivable that Zer0 could be so stupid. He’d best not play any B-Ball near Ft Marcy park!

I think Hill should take this if offered. It’s probably her last chance at doing anything meaningful with her life. Though she’ll wank this up as she has everything else.

I find this funny...a solemn and serious inquiry into Hillary’s life looking for scandals.

Isn’t that like someone making a solemn and serious investigation as to, say...whether or not Madonna is a virgin, whether Joan Rivers has had some work done or whether Helen Thomas was around while cavemen were discovering fire?

Here’s an interesting nugget about Madeline Albright:

Not being a natural born citizen of the United States, she was not eligible as Presidential Successor and was excluded from nuclear contingency plans.

This is a set-up. Nobody given this job of Secy of State will be able to defuse the Israeli/Iranian conflict about to happen. This way, Obama can say he gave Hillary a chance in the big leagues, and she blew it.

If I were Hillary, no way would I give up my Senate seat, the seat of Jacob Javits and David Patrick Moynihan(sp). She’s an idiot if she gives up that seat in the Senate.

Barry is about to make the biggest mistake of his presidency right at the starting gate. What a fool.

Before he knows it, he’ll be in the basement of the White House.

Lawyers: From the law firm of Cheatem, Foolem and Screwem.

I thought Obama was president, but I could be wrong.

Yep, Hillary won the election by being a stealth candidate. She and Bill were teflon-coated politicians for years, making John Gotti envious beyond belief, despite all the mob money he and LIUNA gave them.

Will wonders never cease?

Im thinking that Obama will not take Biden for his VP in his second term. He is going to pick somebody to continue with his legacy and that person will be the front runner for the Dems, NOT Hillary.

During the campaign, she said she’d already been vetted. So, why does she need to do this?

If Hillary gets the Secstate nomination, Obama won't get a second term. She'll make sure of it.

“”Unbeleivable that Zer0 could be so stupid.””

Many are calling it a brilliant move on his part - locking them in as far as obligatory allegiance, removing her possible challenges to him, especially on domestic issues, in the Senate, and virtually killing her chances for running for prez in ‘12, being sec. of state - historically, secs of state haven’t run against an incumbent pres. or certainly not been successful at it. No, it’s Hillary who’d be the fool to accept this position.

Yeah, well I waited for five months for her to make sure Obama didn't win this past election to pave her way in 2012. Didn't happen.

Vetting her? You mean trying to re-write history and hiding the bodies as quickly as possible. She and Bill were in those shady dealings neck and neck. Leopards don't change their spots. The only thing Bill has done is expand. His shady deals are no-longer confined to Ark. - he's gone international since leaving office. Don't think he's in it alone, the dynamic duo is in full swing.

But really, as others have pointed out, why would she want to be part of Obama's administration? It is going to be a dismal failure, 4 and out. If she wants to make any kind of realistic run in 2012, she had better work hard at distancing herself from Obama, without appearing to be working at it.

Interesting Bizzaro World of the liberal.

Her lawyers vet her for a position in someone else’s administration.

Just like the Iraq Veterans Agianst the War told Conyers they didn’t have to be sworn in before they trashed today’s military as baby killing war criminals because the IVAW had already vetted themselves.

She's certainly qualified. Afterall, she's had a foreign affair with her husband for years.

Al-Qaida No. 2 insults Obama with racial epithet
Nov 19 12:20 PM US/Eastern
By MAAMOUN YOUSSEF and LEE KEATH
Associated Press Writers

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - Al-Qaida’s No. 2 leader used a racial epithet to insult Barack Obama in a message posted Wednesday, describing the president-elect in demeaning terms that imply he does the bidding of whites.

The message appeared chiefly aimed at persuading Muslims and Arabs that Obama does not represent a change in U.S. policies. Ayman al-Zawahri said in the message, which appeared on militant Web sites, that Obama is “the direct opposite of honorable black Americans” like Malcolm X, the 1960s African-American rights leader.
In al-Qaida’s first response to Obama’s victory, al-Zawahri also called the president-elect—along with secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice—”house negroes.”


Even al Qaeda says that Zer0 the 0re0’s appointments represent no change.

George $oreA$$ is controlling his house 0re0 very closely with these appointments/selections from Biden to $inator $hrill.
