Hillary should really quit trying to be so cute. Unless she has the where-with-all to charter a private jet every time she wants to travel beyond the local bus route, the price she'll have to pay for excess baggage will bankrupt her.
Okay, she flew to Chicago and talked with Obama about the Secretary of State's job. Those supposedly in the know say it wasn't offered, merely discussed. Yet it is also said the ball is in her court as whether or not to accept.
I am constantly trying to find ways to change my opinion of Hillary and Bill, but they sure make it difficult. Before her name was mentioned as a serious consideration for the post, it had been suggested that Bill's foreign financial involvements could pose a problem for Hillary should she be representing the administration. Bill.
Now they are dragging their feet during the vetting process. Those financial involvements of Bill's must be laid out with 100% transparency or Obama would be foolish to put her in that position. Should that not happen and Obama chooses to turn elsewhere I can hear the wailing from the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pant Suit now! "He snubbed her for the Vice Presidency and now he's dangled this in front of her just to take it away. Sexist!" No. Bill.
This isn't the first time they've played cute with requested records. Remember during the primaries when they refused to release her papers from when she was First Lady? To the best of my recollection, they never did comply.
This is far more serious. The potential of public policy intertwining with fund raising efforts for Bill's Global Initiative could be disastrous. I'm beginning to think the Clinton's air of entitlement is dangerous to the well being of the nation, what's more Obama's presidency. They've a bond between themselves that is as mysterious as it is strong. I am beginning to doubt one could function without the other. The disturbing part, though, is they demand that everything be on their terms. They don't seem to grasp that Bill is no longer President. That had he been a more honorable one, Hillary might now be the President-elect. That she is not. Nor is she Vice President-elect. She is Senator Hillary Clinton, D, NY. Period.
I ask the women who are still her staunch supporters, what is it within her that prompts this self-destructive behavior? Is it Bill? Is it always going to be Bill?
If Hillary is ever going to live up to her potential, she needs to tell Bill to fold.
