I would be much more inclined to consider Hillary Clinton for president than I was four years ago.

Four years ago, she was a first term senator who got her seat as a thank you from the party for not divorcing her philandering husband, and she honestly thought that she should be president for the same reason.

Now, she's spent several years as Secretary of State, during one of the most tense periods in the past 80 years, and has done a good job.

That being said, I will NEVER vote for her, because she voted yes on the Iraq war resolution, and that's a decision I cannot support.

Gee, I thought it was because of her politics and the good stuff she tried to accomplish as a FLOTUS.

what_now: and she honestly thought that she should be president for the same reason.



This is a joke right? You do recall who won the (D) nomination and who is currently POTUS, right? You're going to claim Obama was the more experienced/qualified? Ridiculous.

Try an amazing job. That's why there is discussion about Hillary running for POTUS. Not because of some stupid meme. Because she has been an amazing Sec. of State and thus far for the most part stayed above all the political B.S.

As someone who didn't support Hillary Clinton as a presidential candidate in 2008, I think she's done a stellar job as SOS.
 
2012-04-09 03:24:03 PM  
i wouldn't have voted for her, simply because i find the idea of 20 year old person having never had a president in their lifetime that wasn't a bush or a clinton absolutely freaking ridiculous.

really had nothing to do with her, everything to do with entrenched political families repulsing me.

that said, she absolutely looks like she are serious secretary. or something.

The Afghanistan surge - "I think (the president) listens to her as much or more than anybody," Biden tells USA TODAY. "She's the main player ... the one he looks to give the last wind-up pitch about what should be done."

Biden says Clinton's view prevailed over his own during a policy debate about sending additional troops to Afghanistan. Biden declined to go into details, but Rep. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., a naval Reserve officer with contacts at the State Department and Pentagon, says Biden opposed sending 21,000 additional troops and Clinton favored it.

Have you kept up on Burma and Aung San Suu Kyi? She was released and elected.

She has racked up more miles flying to foreign countries than anyone before her.

Or perhaps put another way, I think if you list off Obama's achievements in foreign affairs (such as the START treaty), you get a pretty nice list. That's what Hillary is in charge of, that's what she does. Many times Obama gets the final credit as he has the final say. But the basis of these things is the work Hillary does. Afghanistan, Iraq, Egypt, Libya, Russia, China, Pakistan (osama bin laden) and so on. These things are not possible without an incredibly powerful and influential secretary of state.

I would vote for Clinton, but she ran a terrible campaign. She ran on a platform of experience, while hardly having any more experience than her challenger. She ran a winner-take-all strategy in primaries that were proportionally represented. She surrounded herself with incompetents like Lanny Davis and Mark Penn. Her rhetoric seemed to mostly center around pandering to women. Substinatively, I have no idea what would differ between her and Obama.

During the campaign, she too hugely vague stances on immigration to guns. And by the end of it, she had terrible, terrible ideas (I remember during a debate she thought that her solution to the housing crisis would be to freeze foreclosures for 5 years, which, even if it were possible, it would just be a terrible, terrible idea.) Her main point was on health care, which, unlike her effort in the 1990s, Obama actually passed.

So why is she good again?

To be fair the Afghanistan surge has been Obama's stated policy since the primaries when Hillary was his opponent not his Secretary of State.

Does you deep admiration extend to the rest of Obama's Cabinet? Do you Give Tim Geithner the same level of credit for improvements in the economy? How about how about Gates and Panetta are they "amazing" too?

I have a lot of good politics. This doesn't mean I should be move to a random state and get the Democratic party machine behind my campaign for United States Senator. As for being First Lady- that's not a political position.

lennavan: what_now: and she honestly thought that she should be president for the same reason.

This is a joke right? You do recall who won the (D) nomination and who is currently POTUS, right? You're going to claim Obama was the more experienced/qualified? Ridiculous.


Obama had held elected office for longer than she did. Again, being first Lady is not a political position.

There were two inexperienced people running for the D nomination in 2008, but one had at least come up through the ranks. This was a minor point in my voting decision.

lennavan: what_now: Now, she's spent several years as Secretary of State, during one of the most tense periods in the past 80 years, and has done a good job.

I agree. She's done an excellent job. I still won't vote for her, but a campaign for POTUS at this point would be based on her merits.

No really, getting the North Koreans to drop the nuclear weapons program in exchange for food is possibly the best thing any administration has done to delay the world blowing up in 30 years.

Or maybe since the Cuban Missile Crisis.

It does to Obama. I disagree with some of what he has done but overall I think he has done an amazing job as POTUS, especially in this climate.

Philip Francis Queeg: Do you Give Tim Geithner the same level of credit for improvements in the economy? How about how about Gates and Panetta are they "amazing" too?


For the most part yes. I would certainly classify their jobs as "good" but would I take it to "amazing?" I haven't thought about it that much. You know who also did an amazing job? Gen. Petraeus.

The wife of the current POTUS has a pretty good idea of what being a POTUS is like. It's pretty decent indirect experience. And it's not a completely irrelevant position, think of the initiatives the current FLOTUS has pursued. Finally, I'm going to suggest that Hillary held influence over decisions Bill made. She wasn't a sideline FLOTUS. Link (new window)

what_now: There were two inexperienced people running for the D nomination in 2008, but one had at least come up through the ranks. This was a minor point in my voting decision.


It was the only reason I supported Hillary over Obama. I liked them both pretty equally but thought Hillary had the experience and know how to actually get shiat done. I actually think what she has done as Sec. of State confirmed that for me. I would not call her inexperienced in the least. She has been in politics since the 70's.

what_now: ...you forgot about North Korea.

I thought Hillary and Obama were pretty similar in terms of everything, except he could say he would have voted No on going to Iraq (of course, he said raising the debt ceiling was bad before he got to the White House, too) and she could say he was wimpish on health care. In general, I thought if she managed to get elected (and it was a horrific campaign, no argument there), she would waste less time with reaching across that farking aisle and that she has more balls, figuratively, than Obama has shown. I don't regret voting for her in the primary but will (obviously) vote Obama in the upcoming election.

She won't stay on as Secretary of State and it's a pity - she was good at it. I am less convinced she wants to run for POTUS again but would certainly consider voting for her if she did. I would be happy with her as Veep but I think Biden doesn't deserve being kicked to the curb.

I would bet that Biden accepted the VP slot with the understanding that it was a one-term deal, and that Hillary would take over for the second term. I'd bet that was the understanding with Hillary when she accepted the SoS nom, too. Unless she truly wasn't planning to run in 2016.

I don't know. As much as VP sounds cool, I honestly think the Sec. of State has more power when it comes to policy than the VP does. If I were Hillary, I would just stay where she is and keep on keeping on.

I think Hillary probably does have at least as much if not more influence on the president as Biden has. Even so, becoming VP would obviously position her better for a future presidential run.

You may want to hold off on the praise for that one....

Seoul, South Korea (CNN) -- North Korea is planning a nuclear test in the area where it has staged previous atomic blasts, according to a report from South Korean intelligence officials obtained by CNN.

The intelligence report has come to light as North Korea gets ready to carry out a rocket launch this week, a move that would further strain ties between the reclusive, nuclear-armed state and other countries. The launch is scheduled to take place just months after the ascendancy of its new leader.

The South Korean intelligence report says it is probable that after the long-range rocket launch, North Korea will use the ensuing international condemnation as an excuse to go ahead with the nuclear test in Punggye-ri, the site in the country's northeast where the other two tests were conducted in 2006 and 2009.

And their nuclear program was funded by BIll
