Comments: Made Me Think

It's hard to gauge these things: Clinton as SecState may not be the same person as Pres. Clinton would have been. She has the liberty of a limited portfolio. Also, apparently, lacks the discipline to keep her differences with the boss to herself, and lacks the courage to risk her job and come out publicly in favor of a different position. Or maybe she did, and I missed it.

Since a lot of Obama admin staff are former Clinton people, I don't know how different a Clinton administration would have been, in terms of day-to-day decisions. Bill Clinton certainly was no great shakes at the democracy promotion things.

That was what I was thinking--that last bit. Bill was no great shakes at it, but maybe Hillary has different views?

FWIW, I was aware that she was more interventionist than many others in the gov't over the past couple of weeks. Haven't read much, but did read a story or two about her views.

Oh, goody, more sexist crap and another round of "Bash The Bitch." Imagine if people had to back up their claims about Hillary. They'd probably talk a lot less, don't you think.
