Hillary Clinton due to step down as Secretary of State within 'days' of start of Barack
Daily Mail ^ | 11/8/12 | Toby Harnden

Hillary Clinton will step down as U.S. Secretary of State within 'days' of President Barack Obama's second inauguration in January, her spokesman said today. Her long-respected departure is expected by most Democrats to be a prelude for a White House run in 2016, when she will be 69. The top candidate to replace her is believed to be Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the losing 2004 Democratic presidential nominee. He is viewed as a more likely pick than Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, because of her widely-criticised appearance

Maybe she and her husband will finally go away. One can hope. I’m sick of both of them and trust me - they have done as much damage to this country as zero has. Why can’t they do like Bush did and just retire?

A continued mystery to me—Why did she take the Secretary of State job in the first place? If I had the choice, I’d much rather be a Senator and if I were Hillary, someone who might have successfully primaried Barack.

Think long game.

Biden will be asked to retire. Hillary will be tapped for VP. In 2012 she is in optimal position to run for President.

Imagine that juggernaut. Two 2 term Presidents standing behind Hillary Clinton, the soon to be first female President !

GOP might as well nominate a scare crow, no chance in hell, zero.

I wonder if Bill Ayers will be the new Secretary of State... or perhaps Rev. Wright.

Isn’t she damaged goods now?
Probably has same odds of being elected president as condoleeza Rice.

My thoughts exactly. Maybe she’ll be serving a prison term then. That’s where Obama needs to be...Prison for treason.

Obama will get to place at least 2 more so the USSC is gone too.

Hillary will complete the set for 9 neo-marxist penumbra judges and she will complete Revelation as the Whore that rides atop the Beast system.

Revelation 17:1-14

I understand Susan Rice is favored because she is a strong supporter of Obama because he does like his sycophants

I am halfway expecting Obama to show his true colors now that he has been elected and nominate someone with worldwide stature like George Clooney or maybe Bruce Springsteen for SOS.

Sometimes, it isn’t all that bad to be 76 yrs old. I won’t be around to see a lot of this happen.

However, I grieve for our 5 kids, their spouses, and our 11 grandkidsl

NO WAY! She is going to get her backside handed to her as soon as all the Benghazi-Gate stuff hits that fan. She had as much to do with that as Berry did........

Is a four year filibuster possible? They should die trying.

Well I don't think she looks that bad, and he's no oil painting himself.

I think they will launch Chelsea Hubbell Mezvinsky in 2013.
There was a gushing puff piece about her in USAWeekend a couple weeks ago.

Hitlery can run; but, she can’t hide.

Benghazi is her legacy...I want to hear her testimony before Congressional Investigations.

And the Billybob Clinton dog and pony show during the campaign could be services with an expected payoff from Obama. He will nominate Hill to the Supreme Court.

That's what I have been saying.
Obama's biggest supporters are the 18-35 year olds and they are the poor suckers that are going to have to pay the price for electing this incompetent racist.

Exactly, he is too petty to have staff members that might outshine him.

Wanting to get as far away from Benghazi as soon as she can - but once the crap finally hits the fan it’s going to get all over her no matter where she tries to hide......

My thought too - maybe she will add something to the pot that hurts Zero, now that he's back in - it might be more useful to the Clintons than if he lost...
