Foggy Bottom

Posted by Ron Coleman on November 24, 2008

Hitch on Hillary:

In matters of foreign policy, it has been proved time and again, the Clintons are devoted to no interest other than their own. A president absolutely has to know of his chief foreign-policy executive that he or she has no other agenda than the one he has set. Who can say with a straight face that this is true of a woman whose personal ambition is without limit; whose second loyalty is to an impeached and disbarred and discredited former president; and who is ready at any moment, and on government time, to take a wheedling call from either of her bulbous brothers? This is also the unscrupulous female who until recently was willing to play the race card on President-elect Obama and (in spite of her own complete want of any foreign-policy qualifications) to ridicule him for lacking what she only knew about by way of sordid backstairs dealing. What may look like wound-healing and magnanimity to some looks like foolhardiness and masochism to me.

It is hard to understand how Obama could really do this.  (Though if you read Dick Morris, certain aspects of the story do become more clear!)

    What I liked about Dick Morris’ piece was the juxtaposition of “Mikva” and “cold water.”

    I’m sure he had no idea.

    I’m honestly surprised that Hillary Clinton would accept the position. I had expected her to stay in the Senate and possibly use her seat as a springboard for a 2012 or 2016 campaign.
