    As for the others, anyone who is/was Secretary of State under Obama is at a handicap since they would be reporting to Valerie Jarrett and Jarrett couldn't find her ass if you placed her hands behind her back, palms down.

    As for the two Bush Secretaries of State, both served at a time when your country was primarily leading a world war and their time was spent traveling to secure coalition agreement. Seeing the troubles both Obama Secretaries have had in gaining any kind of cooperation on foreign policy issues, the two Bush Secretaries should get points for their success.

    All that said, not a one of them is in the class of some of the very fine Secretaries of State to serve your country - my favourite being Kissinger.

    Mornin CJ Well to be honest Kissinger at least put aides around him who knew what was going on with any given area......and Team BO can't be blamed for the likes of Gloria Nuland, Samantha Powers or Susan Rice. Somehow, someway, the Bushes never trimmed those who didn't belong in government out.

    So that's on them for letting them stick around to become the mouths they are.

    Hillary has always been a professional scape goat. She embraces her place in the world. She will go down in history as the very worst but she is cool with that.

    I'm not an Obama basher but she took a lot of heat on his behalf. Obama was unscathed in the 2012 election by the incompetence he proved at Benganzi. It was conveniently Hillary's fault.

    He even publicly punished her for his own short comings.

    Well she did have her role in Libya.....and she was the one to get BO to cross the line he didn't want to at the time. But then Johnny Quest McCain, The Neo Cons, and the French turned up the Heat and the Pressure on him.





    Which you know.....BO can't handle to much when Jarret isn't around.

    No, he wanted to find the black lady's hand so he could help her down.

    They're getting they're centuries mixed up. The 21st century did not start until 2001....

    1900 to 1999 was the 20th century as in 20th Century Films....
