With the Iowa caucus now complete and Hillary Clinton (D) and Ted Cruz (R) declared winners, it’s now time to call out the problems this creates. First, however, I would like to congratulate Iowa delegates on their decision to let Ted Cruz win this one instead of picking that bumbling idiot Trump. Hillary over Sanders (although just about even) may not be your finest moment, but Trump would prove to be a major mistake for American voters. Well, Hillary will, too, but that’s a longer story.
If it’s true, I really have to believe that Barack Obama’s decision to make Hillary Clinton Secretary of State was him simply following the adage of “keeping your friends close and your enemies closer,” because if it wasn’t, I’m losing faith in what Obama considers change. His cabinet is a rehash of what we saw during the Clinton years, leaving me asking – aren’t there better qualified, new-blood men and women that could offer the change that Obama has preached so aggressively during his campaign? Seriosuly, other than being married to Bill Clinton, what has Hillary really accomplished? Does she have the foreign affairs experience necessary to avoid embarrassing the Untied States?
Not to mention, the only reason that Hillary would accept any position offered by Obama is to advance her own political career. She’s already showed with her wavering suppot of Obama after the primaries that she believes she should be the president. What makes anyone think that she feels any differently now or that she would put the office, the party and the President before her own personal agenda? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Hillary Clinton is in it for herself and she has an agenda – her agenda is to help herself. It’s that simple.
The media is basically pointing out that Bill Clinton may be the roadblock to Hillary Clinton becoming Secretary of State. I’m sure it’s a double-edged sword because he has the contacts that could make her beneficial while creating the conflict of interest that might eliminate her from consideration. Either way it sounds like a lose/lose for Hillary. Funny thing, though, it’s been eight years since Bill Clinton left office and in that time Hillary Clinton has more than proved her ability to stand away from her husband when it’s necessary. Besides, if they can try to elect convicted felon, Ted Stevens to office in Alaska, why can’t an impeached president’s wife be Secretary of State?
