    Obama is toast and the quicker eveyone accepts that and stops this game of musical chairs the Admin. is playing w/ its cabinet, and trying to appear responsive to it base, the better off everone else will be. For all intents and purposes, Mitt Romney could very easily be a Democratic Leadership Council, Democrat. A corporatist is a corporatist.

On the other hand, the fact that she has deep connection to those already in charge could also mean she can't change the "development industry". But overall, I think she would do very well in this job.
    Good answer! I still don't like her in the least, but I can't argue with your response.

    You think he should just resign? I mean, why even bother, right? He's just polling 6% ahead of the closest GOP contender after all.

    While you're at it why don't you sue Cap'n Crunch as well.

    My preference would be for Ms. Clinton to take the job as Vice President. She will add to the ticket both in terms of excitement and appeal to voters. And if anything happened to President Obama, I would have faith that she could do the job required.

    Hillary was popular among seniors, but shes incompetent. Funny thing is, I told everyone to vote for Obama, but when election time came, I thought suddenly that he seemed phony for some reason, so i skipped the election. As it turned out, I was right. O'bummer is a NeoCon Republican. Anyways Hillary is a fascist warmonger.

    "Since the US State Department literally is directing armies of protesters and their armed counterparts in the streets from Tunisia to Syria, from Belarus to Moscow, and from Myanmar to Bangkok and Malaysia, it would indeed make sense to reconfigure it into something more suitable to oversee warfare rather than diplomacy. It is the US State Department from which organizations like the National Endowment for Democracy and its myriad of seditious-sowing NGOs stem from and go forth manipulating foreign governments rather than dealing with them as equal sovereign states, a long running theme pursued throughout the upper echelons of the "globocratic" elite."

    Is Hillary great for the World Bank? Compared to what?
    She's former Secretary of State of the largest most influential nation in the world. I don't think there's a position out there that's a better resume for President of the World Bank.

    I think she can do more good as World Bank President than she could do as Vice President.
