Diogenes would find an honest man faster than he would find a man or woman that did not know this: The reason Clinton prefers Kerry over Rice for the secretary of state job is not complicated: Sneed: Hillary Clinton no fan of Susan Rice, prefers Kerry for State By MICHAEL SNEED email@example.com November 30, 2012 9:32PM Sneed: Hillary Clinton no fan of Susan Rice, prefers Kerry for State - Chicago Sun-Times The Senate Club is just one more reason for repealing the XVII Amendment. Let’s face it, both Rice and Kerry are bad pennies. Both smell like garbage. The only option for the public is to hope the one giving off the least odor gets the job. I happen to believe that Rice smells less than Kerry although I would not get downwind of her. Rice is undergoing a media keel-hauling because of the four Americans killed in Benghazi. Yet Kerry was never held responsible for giving aid & comfort to the enemy resulting in a unknown number of American deaths; first after he returned from Vietnam then in Iraq. Whatever the total is —— it is a helluva lot higher than four. Being a US Senator is no plus for advancement in my book. For one thing the media loves them too much; especially the Democrats. Just look at the filth the media dumped on the country in 2008. There is every indication it will get worse in the next four years. Once in a while a good senator shows up, but they are few and far between —— and never a Democrat. US Ambassadors to the United Nations Frankly having US Ambassador to the UN on one’s résumé is a mixed bag. Bush the Elder had the job and he went all the way to the White House thanks to Ronald Reagan popularity. Bush is a New World Order guy; so his name belongs at the top of the negative list of UN Ambassadors. Bush also endorsed Romney. I have to think there is a message about Romney there. John Bolton was one of the good ones. The US Senate refused to confirm him so Bush the Younger made him a recess appointment. Interestingly, opposition to confirming Bolton was led by a piece of garbage who is now one heartbeat away from the presidency. When all is said and done the leading contenders for secretary of state leave a lot to be desired. Let me close on the upbeat: Hillary “Arab Spring” Clinton is leaving.
