    too many succumbed to Clinton Derangement Syndrome.

    Any Democrat who prefers Chuck Hagel to Hillary Clinton needs to have his or her head examined.

    That said, I think Obama was smart to offer this job to Hillary, but she should have stayed in the Senate instead.

    •  It's not CDS to be opposed to Clinton at SOS. (1+ / 0-)

      There are many people that think Hillary lacks the qualifications and temperament for State.

      But, you have never passed up an opportunity to make condescending remarks about Obama supporters. Nice to see that hasn't changed.

        I think she's qualified, former first lady, sitting senator on her second term, foreign policy briefings (not the same that McCain and Obama got) and study since first lady, then as senator, then as presidential candidate, constant discussions with her husband, very intelligent woman.

        She has less freedom as SOS than she would has SEc. of Health and Human Services.

        And if you think Obama is handing her the keys and walking away, I don't think you've been paying attention to how he runs things.

        She doesn't do what he wants and doesn't deliver, she'll be out to spend more time with her family.

        My problem with her stems from the "face" we put to this new administration, but she's pretty popular internationally. I wasn't wild about the pick, but I can live with it.

    •  And too many succumbed to become "Hillbots" (2+ / 0-)

      There are valid reasons to keep the Clintons out of power.  Too bad you didn't learn anything from the primaries.

    •  are you going to scream (0+ / 0-)

      "Hillary Hate!!!" as well?

      We know you'd be screaming that if Obama had proposed her for Surgeon General of the USA and anyone dared to point out that she is not a doctor and doesn't even play one on TV.

      While Hagel isn't my first choice for SoS, at least he has had some actual foreign policy experience. Unlike Hillary "SNIPER FIRE" Clinton.
