The Envoy via Yahoo ^ | 2012-01-26 | Laura Rozen

Posted on 01/26/2012 12:59:16 PM PST by justlurking

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told State Department employees Thursday that she will not stay on in the job if President Obama wins re-election, saying that she is ready to step off "the high wire of American politics," according to the AP.

A State Department official confirmed Clinton's comment, writing to Yahoo News: "Yes, she did [say that]. She said she would stay on until Obama nominates another Secretary of State."

I noticed that one of her reasons for leaving wasn’t to spend more time with her husband

“She said she would stay on until Obama nominates another Secretary of State.”

Why? ObaMao doesn’t need a Constitutional process—he just plucks ‘em right in there without being worried abut a nomination process.

She’s tyred;) Looks like hell and not enjoying real work that requires a knowledge of history, economics, regional grudges, religious and ethnic loyalties.

I believe she’ll let go - she is in way over her head. When things accidentally go well (???) BO gets the credit and when stuff is hitting the fan - she gets blamed.

Leon Panetta can’t wait!!!

Ain't gonna happen. She made a mistake way back when she didn't run with Gore as VP. AND I BELIEVE THEY WOULD HAVE WON.

She's tired and she's been thoroughly embarrassed around the world. She's Obama's boot licker and she regrets it.

Wouldn't be surprised if she retired to NY and Bubba retired to Ireland.

First Lady of Arkansas
First Lady of the US
Carpetbagger US Senator from New York handed a seat
Appointed Secretary of State

What ‘high’ wire has she been on, exactly? She has been handed everything while bitching about it and writing books about how hard done by she has been. She disproves the rule that ‘nobody is ugly at 2 AM’ but her bug-eyed visage has regrettably been with us for two solid decades.

Yeah, until the convention calls her begging her to be the VEEP.

My prediction is Joe Biden will need to have brain surgery again or another “health problem”. Hitlery will be asked to take over.

But gas will probably be $5.00 a gallon by then, and whether she accepts the call is to be determined.

I think these will be the pondering years...The years that will magnify her regrets....one child, a faithless husband, promoting socialism but living Capitalism.

A very unhappy woman. She really has and has had "nothing"....nothing that counts.

You’re assuming a miracle - that she develops a conscience.

My guess is she winds up on a dozen corporate boards and foundations and has her wide @ss kissed for another 20 yrs.
Or maybe a lucrative gig on PMSNBC.

This is odd considering she’d be running for reelection if she’d beaten Obama in 2008. That really is her greatest failure. We’d have been better off with Hillary.

I found the photo a couple of weeks ago, and don't recall where it was posted originally.

Apparently, she wore the... hat(?), to Vaclav Havel's funeral, while representing the USA. (how embarrassing)

My computer source shows CZECH-HAVEL, Authors: Nenov/Reuters.

OK. She was attending a CAtholic funeral at a Cathedral which should require a hat. Is that a hat? Really?

Madelyn is not wearing a hat. Does she have a hankie in her purse?
