In a matter of days, we will be touching down on paradise. Can you feel the magic tinkling in the breeze? Can you the feel the enchantment? Do you even know where we’re going? It’s a wonderful place known only as Fantasy Island. You’re familiar with the name, no? Let me tell you about it. Fantasy Island is where you go to see your greatest wishes and deepest desires come to life, untouched by the rigors of reality and reason. The Island is positively sublime, and if you go there with an open heart, you shall know nothing but joy and fulfillment, perhaps eternally. However, if you go there in blindness or with ill-intent…Well, the possibilities are endless. Thankfully, you are not the reason we’re here today. However, the question of how we came to be on this journey remains. Let us begin with the story: Continue reading
CHICAGO – Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is among the candidates that President-elect Barack Obama is considering for secretary of state, according to two Democratic officials in close contact with the Obama transition team.
Clinton, the former first lady who pushed Obama hard for the Democratic presidential nomination, was rumored to be a contender for the job last week, but the talk died down as party activists questioned whether she was best-suited to be the nation’s top diplomat in an Obama administration.
EXCUSE ME????????? WTF does that mean? She is a billion more times qualfied and experienced to run for the highest office in the US of A and some Obama “party activists” questioned whether she is qualified or not? Gimme a friggin break!
The talk resumed in Washington and elsewhere Thursday, a day after Obama named several former aides to President Bill Clinton to help run his transition effort.
After he nearly destroyed the Clinton legacy now Obama wants to appropriate it. Or is it that nobody on his team has the experience and know-how to confront and resolve problems in a successful way?
The two Democratic officials who spoke Thursday did so on the condition of anonymity to avoid angering Obama and his staff. Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines referred questions to the Obama transition team, which said it had no comment.
Yes, because God/Goddess forbid anybody acknowledging that Hillary Clinton is, well, uh, EXTREMELY QUALIFIED and BRILLIANT.
Other people frequently mentioned for the State Department job are Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., and New Mexico‘s Democratic governor, Bill Richardson.
Ah, the coveted trio of Obama pandering schmucks. Something tells me these are three that are “questioning” whether “Hillary is best-suited.”
OT but important: I’ll be around more this weekend to blog to my heart’s content – I’ve been a bit busy this week with a small but new project that’s fallen on my lap (thank God/Goddess, anything is something!), and even though it’s not the great $ to get me back up to where I was a couple of months ago (stupid bailout made me lose my great big nice end of the year project, !*&#_)#&_@# ), something is something.
