morning musings: Secretary of State
David Sanger's New York Times post, Getting Specific, on the confirmation of Hillary Clinton was interesting. He suggested a few good questions that should be asked of her. I like Hillary and I think she'll do a good job as SoS but I wanted Bill Richardson for the job. It's interesting how things have played out since then. Richardson had to withdraw his name from Commerce due to a grand jury investigation. If he had gotten the State position it would have been a much bigger scandal. I think that Obama and Clinton can and will work well together, despite their differing views on foreign policy. How long can that last though? For all of his first term? Into his second term (inshallah)?
