    Was there any doubt she was using him as a means to an end?

    I think Presidency of the World bank was an idea that got kicked around here a while back as one of the positions she was aiming for.

    I still think she will stay as Secretary of State. She likes the position and is too good at it to leave.

    I have the sound off on CNBC where it was flashed on and they were all laughing, so I don't know if this is true or not.

    It certainly wouldn't be good for Obama. The World Bank is a step down from Sec of State. She won't challenge Obama but this certainly looks like a vote of no confidence.



    If true.

    You're joking right? This IMF Chief position gives her what she always wanted; Ultimate Power!

    It's a step down in terms of actual power.

    But a step up in perception.

    Oh Lord Toro you missed it completely! She wants to be Emperor Palpatine! (Is that spelled right?) That bitch is a Sith Lord! This fits in perfectly with her plans for ultimate power.

    Oh, CNBC just flashed from a Clinton spokesperson that it was totally untrue.

    The report was from Reuters.
