UK Report: Hillary To Accept Sec Of State

From the UK’s Guardian:

Hillary Clinton to accept Obama’s offer of secretary of state job

Monday November 17 2008

Hillary Clinton plans to accept the job of secretary of state offered by Barack Obama, who is reaching out to former rivals to build a broad coalition administration, the Guardian has learned.

Obama’s advisers have begun looking into Bill Clinton’s foundation, which distributes millions of dollars to Africa to help with development, to ensure that there is no conflict of interest. But Democrats do not believe that the vetting is likely to be a problem…

Hey, Mrs. Rodham is as qualified as Madeleine Albright ever was. (Which is to say not at all.)

Moreover, Ms. Albright was never shot at by snipers in Bosnia.

Besides, Hillary still has that teapot she was given for solving the crisis in Northern Ireland.

Oh, and now we can forget all that talk about Obama never promised Hillary anything for her (albeit subdued) support.

    Well, Obamy found someone less qualified to be Secretary of State than he is to be President.

    But she IS a woman (we think).

    Now Obamy needs a cripple a dwarf and a queer (or he could go for the trifecta and just pick Barney Fife to ruin another one of our key business sectors.).

    I knew there was a reason I felt compelled to buy that bottle of Rum…….is there anyone Obambi is hiring who is not a former member of the Clinton White House or an established member of the liberal political elite? As in where’s the BLEEP change Obambi? How are you going to change the whole BLEEP world? Huh? Maybe some of the ignorant libbies who voted him into office are starting to regret it.

    I would love to have listened in on the backdoor discussions that led to these various appointments…….now all that’s left is for Slick Willie to come striding back in.

    Hey now, proreason, you’re hitting close to Wyoming with that James Watt reference (Just as an aside I have on my to do list going down to my old High School to take a picture of “Richard Cheney Memorial Stadium” in order to have something to add to my HuffPost profile-no way I’m going near the “Richard Cheney Federal Building” with a camera).

    Bill and Hillary obviously rolled their 6 sided die and figured out 2012 was a no go and that Senate Majority Sturmbahnfuhrer was going nowhere. Is she parking herself till Ginsburg signs off or what? Bill Clinton plays three-dimensional Stratego.

  4. pinandpuller says:

    So what is the PEO’s strategy here-to build the biggest douche centrifuge ever known to mankind (thinking of the movie “Contact”)? What kind of DIT’s are waiting in the wings in NY and MA-otherwise known as the Great Northeastern Douche Refuge?

  5. U NO HOO says:

    Change:…Biden…Emanuel…Clinton…

    Rats, amerikans are foiled or foyled or fooled again.

    2016. But why she thinks she needs a credential is beyond knowing. Somethings gonna go haywire with the normally sane world out there, and Obamy will be needing scapegoats. Think maybe the Hildebeast will be a convenient pin-cushion? (no reference intended to the gorgeous photo of the beast)

  7. sillielizzie says:

    Sure she’s qualified! She still has all the White House china that they ripped off before they left Washington the last time… which means she knows how to lick Obama’s plate clean.

  8. Consilience says:

    I’ll believe it when I see it…and Miss Hillary can do plenty of mischief at Foggy Bottom; but I agree with Rush. The thug messiah will be running foreign policy and the cookie baker will be as isolated as Bill Rogers was in the Nixon administration…who didn’t even know about China until his holiness Kissinger was in the air…Keep your friends close, your enemies closer—-smart move by the thug messiah.

  9. JohnMG says:

    Will this make Hildabeast the second black female Secretary-of-State?

  10. Gladius et Scutum says:

    Does this mean that Obama has abandon his plans to have all US forces out of Iraq within (Insert your four favorite numbers here)? Does he intend to have Hillary carry out a policy she does not support? Will the MSM even notice? Will I be accused of “hate speech” for asking?

  11. proreason says:

    Gladius et Scutum

    you sir are obviously a racist, and a misogynous to boot.

  12. Professor_Repulso says:

    Huzzah! A ‘broad coalition’? As in ‘two axe-handles wide’? Would anyone care to set a number for over/under betting on the number of retread Clinton thugs that will end up in this administration?

  13. DEZ says:

    “Would anyone care to set a number for over/under betting on the number of retread Clinton thugs that will end up in this administration?’

    Um, NO!

  14. Professor_Repulso says:

    DEZ, I am sure you remember the cast of characters from the eight year run of the Billy BubbaSlime freak show. For his shock troops, president B.O. Plenty could bring back the formidable duo of Robert Reich and Janet Reno. The combination of the vertically challenged Reich and the visually challenging Reno would be about like Master/Blaster in ‘Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome’. The first order of business would be to challenge Joe Jitsu Putin to caged death match.

    Think about this kids, Obama is “vetting” Hillary for the SOS job. That means also vetting Bubba. So all that money that he has been raking in for a) his foundation, b) his presidential library or c) his own personal checking account (I chose Door C) guess who will now have all that information that the whole nation has been trying to get it’s hands on since 2001? But Obama is walking a percarious tightrope.

    On one hand, he can give Hillary the SOS job and will have her under his thumb, basically not only ending her presidential aspirations and her Senate career in one wide swoop, with the Bubba Secrets locked up safely in his Oval Office desk along with a typed copy of her resignation or

    He can learn that Bubba is just too hot to handle and has been treated very, very kindly by some nations that seem to have little regard for the U.S. and withdraw the offer. That means that he will have slammed the door in her face, not just one, but twice. And that will not set well with the 18 million that voted for her when ’12 comes along. Like it or not, Hillary still has some political clout.

    Has anyone noticed how quiet Bill Richarson and John Kerry have been since the election? I guess it takes some time to get the tire tracks removed from the back of their suit coats. I am sure both of them were counting on the SOS position. Maybe they should have talked to Alice Palmer before they backe “The One”. She could have filled them in on how it feels to be thrown under the Obama bus.

    This whole Regime, Obamacracy, administration is taking the shape of Clinton 2.0. I guess this finally means the death of the middle class… Anyway, it is only fitting for her to take the post, I mean the pictures of her at the Glamour Awards did bear a striking resemblance to Madeleine Albright.

  17. JohnMG says:

    I find the “SOS” abbreviation ironically appropriate, however.

  18. Liberals Demise says:

    Where is ALL the change that Zues promised the sheepeople? All I’m seeing is a revamped Clinton Mafioso Criminal Crew, at best!! If Frau Hilda gets to be SOS, will Barry need a special permit to zone a Zeppelin at the White House?

  19. Chinnubie says:

    Maybe I’m just not informed enough but what happens to her Senate seat if she accepts the SOS job. Does his Emminence decide on who replaces her or does she get to pick someone to replace her, or does New York have some kind of run-off? I never really cared about this type of situation before but the United States population has done something that I never thought could happen in this country, basically converting to socialism/communism.

  20. JohnMG says:

    ……”If Frau Hilda gets to be SOS, will Barry need a special permit to zone a Zeppelin at the White House?……”

    The broom closet will do just fine, LD.

  21. Colonel1961 says:

    She’s about as qualified to be SoS as she is to be a Senator – for the love of Pete! What in the hell has she ever done? Ever? Yet Sarah Palin’s unqualified to be veep? Kiss my big ol’ butt…
