Clinton describes daylight with Obama on Egypt

Distancing herself from some of the Obama administration’s handling of the Arab Spring, Hillary Rodham Clinton says in her upcoming book that she pushed for Hosni Mubarak to initiate an orderly transition of power in Egypt but was overruled by President Barack Obama’s call for the strongman to stand down immediately.

In her book “Hard Choices,” a copy of which was purchased by The Associated Press, Clinton describes an administration split during the frantic days of Arab protests in 2011. She includes herself among an old guard of cautious realists such as Vice President Joe Biden, national security adviser Tom Donilon and Defense Secretary Robert Gates at odds with a younger generation of White House aides “swept up in the drama and idealism of the moment.”

“I was concerned that we not be seen as pushing a longtime partner out the door, leaving Egypt, Israel, Jordan and the region to an uncertain, dangerous future,” the former secretary of state recounts. …

I’m questioning more and more if she will even get the Democrat nomination.

This stunt she has been doing lately of trying to write books to re write her history probably will not work. Her record is out there and easy to see by all. Writing a book doesn’t change that

I’m sure her staff of ghost writers will make her smell like a rose. The Myth will continue.

You are right but she has a credibility problem that she will never be able to shake.

I saw on Drudge that Hillary had a meeting at the White House about her book. I did not read it so I don’t know the details, but I wonder if she was doing some “damage control” with Obama and to inform him she would be expressing her opinions contrary to administration policy or actions. Just a thought

She may have had her “reservations,” but her record was that she was the weakest and most marginalized SOS ever. Half the time, when the big stuff was going down, she had been sent to open a community center in some Third World country and didn’t even participate in anything important.

Loser.
