    But here's the best part; Kofi Annan has also awarded Clinton the position of negotiating treaties with the AU, the African Union. Its official, Bill Clinton is being groomed to become the next UN Secretary General. This is getting better and better all the time!

    The conservatives have no one to blame but themselves; to encourage Bush to "bumrush" Iraq without international support, was without a doubt, a declaration of war against the UN. They had to strike back, so they are firing a bullet right back, or shall we call it a "Bill-ett".

    So let's summarize everyone's attitude towards conservative america...

    The EU, using the Euro :whip:

    The UN's message, in this appointment of Bill Clinton :slap:

    America's opinion as best described by Bush's job approval rating :finger:

    America and the world has spoken. Allow Bush and the conservatives, to finish making their messes, then make sure we have as many political mops and brooms necessary to clean it up in 2008.

    Bill Clinton will be an outstanding UN secretary general. He will stand up against US policies when necessary, his charisma will definitely serve well in treaty negotiations; and dog-gone-it, the world leaders simply love him!

    The very idea that in 2008, the US STILL remains in Republican control only to have to answer to Bill Clinton? :rotflmao: PRICELESS!!!

    I like Kofi's attitude in his comments concerning this appointment... An attitude that pretty much says...

    If not Bill Clinton, who?

    Answer to Bill Clinton??? says who???


    Actually I see nothing wrong with putting a person like Clinton as the head of the UN...A useless and ineffective leader for a useless and ineffective organization....

    Aside from the statement of Clinton as a useless and ineffective leader, I love the post. Clinton would make a fantastic secratary general and could help in repairing the damaged US reputation abroad.

    Uhhh, explain something to me, why would we have to answer to Billybob even if he were UN Sec Gen? We don't listen to the UN SecGen now and we never will.

    You are a frigg'n idiot.

    Unfortunately for some, there is a process of approval involved in who becomes UN Secretary General.

    Clinton's had his power-hungry eye on the UN position ever since leaving the Presidency. This man is a complete danger to the U.S. as well as his wife. Can you imagine a combination of Hillary in the White House with Bill as head of the UN? Bush needs to pull the plug on the UN right now!

    Oh please-----tell me the last time a majority of foreigners liked America.

    If a guy who kied about getting blow-jobs from an intern can possibly improve our reputation then we sure as hell don't have much of an image problem

    Actually, the position of secretary general is supposed to rotate geographically; I believe Asia is supposed to be next. The Security Council recommends candidates to the General Assembly based on that geographical rotation. I know China is backing their own candidate. There is also the fact that many nations are reluctant to have a secretary general from any nation that sits as a permanent memeber of the security council. Kofi is in there until 2006; if Asia does get the next slot, that is another five year term and possibly ten if the Asian candidate gets two terms...so Bill could conceivably be UN Secretary General in 2011, unless something really drastic happens and the UN ignores it's own established processes; it could happen I guess.

    I have to concur. We dont answer to the Secretary General now. Why exactly would we have to answer to Clinton if he was the Secretary general?

    This is the problem with the left. they want us to have to answer to the Secretary general. The United States can never do that. The Constitution is clear on who the leader of our nation is. We are going to remain a free nation and there is no way in hell that we will submit to an unelected dictator.

    If you were thinking rationally youd realize what a horrible idea having Clinton as President would be. Especially if Hillary or Kerry ended up as President. We can kiss our freedom goodbye then.
