  •  I'm not all that worried (4+ / 0-)

    Obama seems to know what he's doing. Although Lincoln and Seward hated each other from what I read.

    And isn't it a little weird to see Arianna and Bill on a show together pretending like they don't frequently engage in the nasty?

      but he still had to fight a civil war. Obama is likely to have to fight one, too-- he's going to have to struggle every day and against Republican sabotage efforts and pecksniffery from the TV pundits-- and having Clinton in his cabinet is not going to provide him with any real help. The Clintons' supreme cause is always the Clintons.

        the whole self-centered thing is more Bill's problem than Hillary's.  (I'm not saying she doesn't have that, just saying she can get over hers.)

        •  Yes, Bill is so self centered (0+ / 0-)

          so rotten, so miserable.  Must be from that silver spoon childhood he had where everything was handed to him on a silver platter.

          Yes that makes sense.

          I know what you meant, but "self-centered" isn't the right word as it is usually in reference to someone who is incapable of seeing and operating from the point of view of others or their needs, etc.

          Bill has a healthy ego, wanting to be seen, credited, hosting the party, but then so do all that seek the presidency and high office ;-)

        I know she campaigned non-stop for Obama but I know she did that only to promote herself.

        I know he works like night and day to bring AIDS medicine to third world countries.... but we all know that's just a vanity project.

        The Clintons main cause is always the Clintons.

        I can't escape your logic.

        Problem is.  Neither can you.

        If you wanted to.  And you don't.

          the children here cannot get past their own egos.  Here, it's all about making sure the world knows all the awful evil thing the Clintons purposely did to the world and still want to do just so they can be famous.  Because you know the Clintons are so "not known" in the world, and so poor, that they are constantly plotting to get fame and wealth.

          •  Actually... (0+ / 0-)

            I would say they are quite interested in fame, etc... but per my note above, it is sooo benign compared to what motivates others and who do far less good in the world than the Clintons have done and do! Thus, the insanity!

        Maybe they will refuse food or medicine just to teach that nasty Bill Clinton a lesson.

        Do people like you even get how pathetically ignorant and adolescent you sound?

      •  ooh! Points for exotic word! (0+ / 0-)

        "pecksniffery" You've got me running to the dictionary - which I enjoy.

        While I would say the Clintons do have that 'celebrity-type' mantra of "stay in the news" and "any publicity is good publicity," there is hardly a politician or person in the public eye that doesn't run multiple agendas at once and always include self-serving ones.  

        The actual positive with the Clinton's "supreme cause" as you call it - is that it is quite visible and well-known and relatively harmless compared with the scores of others whose agendas and motives and beneficiaries we are not able to see!

    •  lol good comment on AH and BM! (0+ / 0-)

      I'm certain Obama knows what he's doing.

      But this chatter about sinister "conflicts of interest" arising from association of Bill to Hill and donations to a charity are ridiculous.
