    That ain't no shit! I HATE that Obama even offered her the position. The Clintons are like freakin magnets for drama. Not to mention she has a completely different stance on diplomacy.

    It wouldn't be a smart choice. It would keep her out of matters domestic, but it would lead to infighting between the West Wing and Foggy Bottom. Obama would merely be handing Foggy Bottom to the Clintons.

    I think the issue is being blown out of proportion, personally. Hillary is a great pick for Secretary of State. When anyone questioned Obama's past relations, they were pushed aside. Now he wants to make a big deal out of Bill's?

    that diplomacy has no place when talking to our enemies. She called Obama naive to think he could negotitate with our enemies during the primaries.

    I don't see where Obama is making a big deal out of Bill's past dealings except insomuch as to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest between his wife dealing with heads of state and him (Bill) taking their money for his organization. and everyone has said what happened in the past won't be an issue as long as in the future there is no appearance of conflict which is why Bill has bent over backwards to clear the way for Hillary to do SOS.

    Personally I hope she turns it down. I hate the idea of her being SOS and think there are much better choices, such as Richardson from NM.

    Good point. Now she's going to have to meet with these people without preconditions. Maybe one of those preconditions is that the diplomatic envoy would be kept safe. Imagine- Hillary taken hostage! Maybe that's Obama's plan all along! :lol:
