    Uuuummm..... Is she positioning herself for a run in the next presidential election?

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in a speech meant to herald the arrival of a "new American moment," warned Wednesday that the national debt could weaken the United States and prevent the country from exerting its influence overseas. She said the trillions left on the national credit card have eroded America's ability to "chart our own destiny."

    "Our rising debt levels (pose) a national security threat," she said.

    This is a big signal to the Dems who are dissatisfied with Obama that Hillary is the wings and ready to run in 2012.

    Sounds like it to me. I am under the impression she made those statements in a Q&A interview after her speech??

    She did make the statements in the QA - and they are very different in tone from her WH approved prepared remarks. The fact that she went off message like this is a big bitch slap to Obama.

    I commend her for some rare honesty myself.

    As to whether or not she will run. I doubt it. She wants to win, and running against your own Parties incumbent president is a good way to become a pariah not to win the WH.

    If the party abandons Obama, which is becoming increasingly plausible, then it's wide open for Hillary in 2012.

    They are only running away from him to win the mid terms. they will come back into the fold like dogs as soon as the mid terms are over.

    Mark my words.

    We'll see. I doubt it will be quite as easy as that.
