During the Democrat primaries I rooted for Obama over Hillary, even though I didn’t want either of them to win the election. The reason I preferred Obama to Hillary is, at the time, he seemed less likely to win the election, but he also seemed preferable to her if he won. After all, I really don’t want to look at Bill Clinton’s mug any more than I have to, not to mention Hillary’s. The Clintons ran a very corrupt white house and I didn’t want to see a return to that.
Not only did Obama hire almost the entire Clinton cabinet, he hired Hillary as Secretary of State. And apparently, she has changed her tune on Israel now that she no longer needs to patronize New York Jews as senator.
In a swift about face from her views as New York’s senator, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is now hammering Israel over its treatment of Palestinians in Gaza.
As First Lady, Clinton raised eyebrows when she kissed Suha Arafat.
Since she was then seeking a Senate seat the resulting brouhaha caused her to “re-think” her positions.
“I’m a very strong supporter of Israel,” Clinton said back in February 2000.
On Thursday, as Secretary of State she had yet another about face in the form of angry messages demanding Israel speed up aid to Gaza. Jewish leaders are furious
The Clinton never seemed very sincere to me and this proves it. She may be pushing this administration’s agenda. In any event what we’re seeing is not very encouraging. The next four years are looking really ugly.
And Clinton may be destroying her political future being part of Obama’s cabinent. Maybe that’s not such a bad thing after all.
