Hillary Clinton is said to be frustrated with her lack of authority as secretary of state and resentful of the glacial pace of the White House vetting process.
President Obama's picks fly in even if they didn't pay their taxes. But her picks take forever," noted one Democrat.
"Plus, she has no real clout over Holbrooke or Mitchell.
Richard Holbrooke is Obama's "special representative" for Afghanistan and Pakistan.
George Mitchell is "special envoy" to the Middle East. Clinton is said to be considering quitting to retake her old US Senate seat now held by Kristin Gillibrand-- or running for governor, as one rumor has it.
"Her argument will be that Gillibrand is in danger of losing the seat to the Republicans," said a source.

Yup, I think she's one unhappy camper.
Sorry Hillary. The Chicago gang slipped a piece of sheet metal over that “glass ceiling”. LOL! Better luck next time Tweety.
Remember the good old days when women were happy just being the United States Secretary Of State?
That must be why she is putting on the poundage. Did you see her in that big red pant suit during the speech. She looked like a balloon.
I wasn’t watching .. did she look that big ?
Shoulda stayed a Senator, Hillary. All the perks, no responsibility. Only realistic challenge to holding that seat forever would have been if Guiliani really, really wanted it.
Dumb choice Miss Rodham. But it was YOUR choice. Made your bed, lay in it, fleas, lice and all.
Ah, finally, the real subject rears up from the slimy depths and casts it’s baleful eye upon the the Precious... the Precious that was to be Hers Alone...
And thunder rolls, and lightning flashes, and little weasels run for cover...
There’s no doubt that she’s been ‘handled’
by Obama, having had the typical authority
of the sec’s office greatly diminished. It’s
been very obvious to observe. Obama got her
good, and I bet she’s really ticked.
She was put there to shut up and stay out of the way. Had she been elected President, she would have done the same. What did she expect?
Clinton can’t do that can she? That’s bullsh%t! She gave it up, to tough! I wish she’d go find a hole somewhere & retire!
to tough = so tough...sorry
She looked like a real blimp.
Wait! You want me to tell you what Senator Obama thinks. Senator Obama is not the President, I am. So you ask my opinion, I will tell you my opinion. I'm not going to be channelling The Kenyan.
;) Too priceless .. must see again
Let's see, the harpie shrew and her coked-out lecher pretend-husband got out-maneuvered by the slimy Boy King of Kenya.
Her gig is to stay in Nothingstan oblivion--
--she better watch her six if she plans on busting out.
Hell, I remember when women were happy just being secretaries!
My prediction: She will resign this year to run for governor of NY which will be her launching pad to run for POTUS (Pantsuit of the United States) in 2012.
When superegos collide.
That leaves two other options, battle (incumbent) Paterson, plus the (leading in the polls) Cuomo for the DemocRAT PRIMARY for governor in 2010, PLUS then battle Gulianni in the general election. ...All in all, quite a long shot...
OR, another option is for Chuckie to have a Clintonista style 'accident', or whip him in the 2010 Senate primary race. I wonder what 'dirt' she has on him?
I'm sure her favorite wet-dream however, would be to somehow 'nudge' out the Messiah before November 2012.
Like Palin,that would be quitting. s/
If Hillary didn’t see this coming, she’s too stupid for office.
OR, she can always carpet-bag her way to yet another state, picking the surest win she can find in any “blue” state which will fall for the delusion that her national prominence will mean more power and glory for that state, it’s socialist programs etc.
She could easily be elected Gov. or US Senator from any number of “blue” states in 2010, depending upon what positions are open, vulnerable, or by some quirk held by a RINO. I haven’t surveyed the possibilities yet, but (hate to say it) she ought to forget about NY and plop her big bottom into another lib cesspool....
I read somewhere that Obama meets regularly with his czars but has only had one cabinet meeting. I don’t know if that’s true, but I do suspect that the czars are more important to him than the cabinet members.
I doubt that he spends much time in the same room with Hillary. She probably knew going into this that it wouldn’t be easy. What she didn’t suspect was that she would have nothing of substance to do, and limited authority. I’m sure she wants out, but she also wants a soft place to land.
You might be right, sir.
The Van Jones story isn't about another radical federal employee or even about President Obama's addiction to executive authority (he has appointed over 30 czars with whom he meets regularly, but he has held just one cabinet meeting since his inauguration).
“and I bet shes really ticked”.
And she isn’t the only one Ozero has pissed on.
I have a feeling the folks over at Langley who work for the C.I.A. may be working over time to find anything in Ozero’s past that will destroy him.
Then there is Jesse Jackson and the other race baiters who have lost prestige do to Ozero.
Eventually someone will throw this marxist punk under the bus.
Literally I’m hoping figuratively at the very least.
“...Hillary Clinton is said to be frustrated with her lack of authority as secretary of state...”
I have to hand it to 0bama. He neutered Bill and isolated Hillary.
His only moves I support.
The Hildabeast taking on chuckie schumer?
Man that would be fun watching these two pieces of garbage going after each other with long knives.
“If Hillary didnt see this coming, shes too stupid for office.”
Since when has that ever stopped a liberal from doing anything?:)
And Voter is in the HAPPY CAMPER SECTION. . . . .
she resigned her senate seat. u mean she can take it back?
Yea,the smartest woman in the world! HA!
She should challenge 0 in ‘12. Let’s encourage that. Heh heh.
If Reid gets defeated next year (let’s hope!) Hillary will really be regretting that she left the Senate because she could have run for majority leader. She’d have had far more power there than she would as SOS. Maybe she should challenge Sen Gillibrand for renomination. How wild would that be?!
Hillery you must realize that you are just one of obumma’s Tokens.
She could easily be elected Gov. or US Senator from any number of blue states in 2010, depending upon what positions are open, vulnerable, or by some quirk held by a RINO. I havent surveyed the possibilities yet, but (hate to say it) she ought to forget about NY and plop her big bottom into another lib cesspool....
There's an opening in Massachusetts...but of course, the last surviving Kennedy Brotha won't allow that....
Can she move to Massachusetts and get elected the way she did in New York? What are the laws on residency there?
If Obama, Biden, Pelosi, and Byrd were to assume room temperature, Hillary, as Secretary of State, is next in line for the presidency.....I wouldn’t put anything past this plotting, evil “woman.”
Barry’s involvement in the Lockerbie bomber deal screwed her over. Any presidential ambitions she has are now toast.
On the upside the Hotel on Saipan overlooks the beach.
Note to Hillie: Curious why you didn’t quit, if you were indeed left out in the cold in that deal. Only reason I can think of is that you figger no-one would believe your protestations of ignorance. Good guess.
She’s a fool. Either she expeceted this invisible role and was willing to accept it as a price for the perceived power and stature, or she didn’t expect it from the Obamagoons, which makes her an idiot as well.
Will Gillebran step aside?
Can she get an apartment in Boston and run for Kennedy’s seat?
I knew she would leave but something about the rumors the night after his “do or die” speech on health care seems rich.
She has insiide info about O and his surrounders which is valuable. And does she get to access passport files the way she did FBI.
She and Obmam could have a mutual mud fest that might be just the best girl fight we ever saw~
The real beauty of this whole scenario is that once she leaves, it may be payback time. Bill certainly isn’t enamored of Obama, and Hillary is just an evil B***H. If Obama crashes hard, then that opens up the gate for Hillary in 2012.
True. Only problem is that they're ready, willing, and able to take the country down with 'em while they go at it.
I find it quite hilarious that if Zero needs to get Hillary out of the picture at anytime he can send her to Congo or Bora Bora. She put herself in this position.
Bill has probably thanked Zero profusely for putting distance between he and Cankles.
