Sit on this!

Sit on this!

That’s our Hillary:

Before Hillary Clinton has been formally offered the job as Secretary of State, a purge of Barack Obama’s top foreign policy team has begun. 

The advisers who helped trash the former First Lady’s foreign policy credentials on the campaign trail are being brutally shunted aside, as the price of her accepting the job of being the public face of America to the world. In negotiations with Mr Obama this week before agreeing to take the job, she demanded and received assurances that she alone should appoint staff to the State Department. She also got assurances that she will have direct access to the President and will not have to go through his foreign policy advisers on the National Security Council, which is where many of her critics in the Obama team are expected to end up.

The first victims of Mrs Clinton’s anticipated appointment will be those who defended Mr Obama’s flanks on the campaign trail. By mocking Mrs Clinton’s claims to have landed under sniper fire in Bosnia or pouring scorn on her much-ballyhooed claim to have visited 80 countries as First Lady they successfully deflected the damaging charge that he is a lightweight on international issues.

Foremost among the victims of the purges is her old Yale Law School buddy Greg Craig, a man who more than anyone led the rescue of his presidency starting the very night Kenneth Starr’s lurid report into the squalid details of the former president’s sex scandal with Monica Lewinsky were published on the internet in 1998. Despite his long and loyal friendship with the Clintons, Mr Craig threw his lot in with Mr Obama at an early stage in the presidential election campaign. As if that betrayal to the cause of the Clinton restoration was not enough, Mr Craig did more to undermine Mrs Clinton’s claims to be a foreign policy expert than anyone else in the some of the ugliest exchanges of the battle for the Democratic nomination.

Payback is a you-know-what!

    To think she considered him a friend of many years and he went over to Obama camp.
    Friendships have a totally diferrent depth in Washington, when you can throw away a friendship of many years for the new flavor of the month. I bet she even regretted going on a date with the smock! No wonder she wants to set her rules down, being that loyalty/trust is in ‘short’ supply and many are simply just willing to agree with Obama rather then do what is needed. Yup. She will not be a yes MAN and will present what is best for the countr and reality will be a much needed supply. Repeating Change and Hope won’t get things done, experience and work ethic will and Hillary has always had that.

    Wasn’t it Truman who said, “if you want a friend in Washington, get a dog”?

    Woman Voter: There are no friendships or friends in politics. There are allies and there are enemies. Depending on the circumstance, you can negotiate with your enemies to be your ally.

    BO is aligning with what seems to be the thing to do for now. Tomorrow might be a different story.

    His throwing out of his “advisers” is already a sign that he has no loyalties and will do whatever that will advance his own agenda. Yesterday, these bunch of “advisers” were his allies, today he wants HRC, tomorrow…???

    Pat: The same can be said of in business as well. There are no friends when it comes to politics/finance/money/business. For that matter, even marriages between political figures are often an arrangement/union to ensure a greater alignment of power. This was true for many royalties who married in the past.
