Transit, transition, Hillary and that rumour mill

How much can the media take for heavens sake?

I don’t know how many people have been put into positions in the incoming Obama cabinet – but it is a lot!

The latest and long standing is where will he put Hillary Clinton? If anywhere.

To say that CNN has ‘sources’ in the Obama camp is a little iffy. If they had these we would have known a hell of a lot more about his campaign. He and his team were excellent at keeping things under wraps. Is it any different now?

The two sources said Clinton was surprised to hear the rumors about the secretary of state position. The sources could not confirm that the two discussed the nation’s top diplomatic position or that it was offered.

This is not the first time Clinton has been rumored to be under consideration for a position on Obama’s team.

The New York senator was said to be on Obama’s short list of possible vice presidential picks this summer, but Obama ended up picking Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware.

I am sure she is being considered for something – but why not let Obama just get on with it – or is it a matter that the MSM still has to be the first with the news?

It will probably be a blogger who shouts it first.

    I WANT TO FIX HILLARY CLINTON FOR STAYING WITH BILL WHEN SHE SHOULD HAVE DIVORCED HIM OVER:
    1. HIS ANTIMASTURBATION
    2. HIS CHEATING ADULTERY
    ALSO IM AGAINST HER NOT LISTENING TO ME ABOUT VOTING AGAINST THE ANTI POKER BILL (PHONE CALLS, LETTERS) AND RECEIVING FUNDING FROM HEALTH INSURANCE COMPANIES WHEN THEY ARE ALREADY OVERCHARGING AND AGE DISCRIMINATING. I ALSO BELIEVE LIKE JOE LIEBERMAN THAT BILL CLINTON SHOULD HAVE BEEN IMPEACHED AFTER ILLEGALLY CHEATING ON HIS WIFE.

    I’d rather have Hillary Secretary of Health and Human Services. That’s where her strength lies and her claim to fame. I’d rather see Bill Richardson as Secretary of State.

  3. thebeadden says:

    I agree with Kate. Hillary should be in health.

    Ron Paul is by far the most reasonable and responsible politician we have in office. Government is an overgrown octopus with tentacles spread out WAY too far.

    Is Ron Paul the only guy who understands the Proper Role of Government?

    America is a different place since the election of P.E Obama I can see it everyday on people’s faces and just the rumors of a possible Secretary of State “Clinton” bring my hopes to a higher level. It would be good for people to remember what a Secretary of State’s job is, I remember the days when Americans were respected, admired and loved all over the world, and whom better than Senator Clinton to claim our legacy in the international arena, I can’t see a better pick for the job when it comes to putting a well respected foreign affairs face on behalf of the American people. Mrs. Clinton will be a very fine Secretary Of State.

    Frank Tells,
    Impeached over a blow job and a lie to cover it up?

    But lying to the American people to invade another country which resulted in thousands and thousands of deaths doesn’t even make bile in the back of your throat rise up even a little bit? Its hard to read that cap locks on rant and not justifiably feel that you sir need a reality check.

    Chuckypita,
    Have you actually read his policies, or understand them in the least? While his Ivory Tower policies are crisp new fodder for the free market fiscal conservatives, it belies the fact that we live in a world where such policies could never exist. Insert the realities of greed into his proposals and the truth should come shining through.

    The Rest of You!
    As to Hillary being Secretary of State, bleh, no. Put her in Health and let her lose on Health Care reform. Better yet, put her in charge of the Justice Department so that we can finally see some of these cronies hanging from the gallows.

    Can you think of anyone who would be more effective at sending Rumsfield and Cheney off to the World Court for crimes against humanity? Not only is it the right thing to do, but the political payback would bring a smile to the Clinton family.

    Peace!

    Still cogitating on this SoS thing. I’d been thinking Richardson.

  8. patrick says:

    it seems like, if Hillary becomes the Sec. State, then there will be some serious personality and agenda conflict between her and Obama

  9. Venessa says:

    Patrick ~ I agree. My hope is she is not appointed and this is all just rumor.

By all means, leave your 2 bobs worth
