    extremely. I think Obama has found himself more at odds with State both in Egypt and here. I think his penchant is to re-establish the US a country that tries not to intervene and instead supports national self-determination. I think if Secretary Clinton's course is maintained there will be a rift.

      don't get why so many here are so comfortable giving him  a pass on everything done by his administration that would be thoroughly, appropriately, and roundly condemned if done when GWB was in the WH.

        and I'm watching.

        I'm not terribly thrilled with the position regarding Iran for some time.

        I just have a gut feeling that Sec. Clinton has a tendency to act a bit rogue--speak and do first and ask permission later.

          tone-deaf, literally and figuratively.  In response to a question that pointed out here failure to condemn the much higher death and injury body count to protesters in Egypt compared with Iran, she sort of said, "that's ridiculous."  Then proceeded to speak of how much Egyptian protesters have accomplished while Iranian protesters haven't accomplished anything.

          Also must keep in mind that Hillary and Biden are generally tasked with playing bad cop to Obama's good cop on big issues.
