Lack of control

The quote of day comes from Journalist and Author Bob Woodward-

Being president is about control, and tell me who ever controlled Bill or Hillary Clinton. They can't control each other
LOL Hillary couldn't control herself from fibbing about being sniped at in Bosnia or thinking the Democratic primary race wasn't over just like it was in 1968. As for former President Clinton's lack of control, I'd need a week to catalog it and when the post was finished I don't think Kevin would appreciate Wizbang crashing because of my bulky work.

Hillary is one of the few people in Congress that could have opposed Obama and not been called a racist or worse. She would have gotten concession after concession from Obama and run the Senate. She could have then turned around in 2012 and said,"I told you so. Obama has not delivered like I would have". The negotiating behind the scenes must have been brutal even as the smiles and coyness were the front page story. Hillary must have gotten everything she wanted and I mean everything. The mind boggles as to what that was.

The old saying, "politics's make strange bed-fellows", comes to mind on this one. But time will tell, won't it?

Faux Bama's selections so far prove how clueless he is. Is there really any evidence of Hillery reaching out, and making things better?

What exactly are her 'negotiating' successes? She is a condescending bitch, remember how the Whote House staff was not allowed to look her in the eye? Im not even sure if there is any proof of her being kind to people, unless she expected something in return.

Let the Obama messiah have a cigarette. The fact that he is a fellow smoker is the only thing that I can find to like about him. If he quits, I will have nothing.

Control? Who needs control... (Below threshold)

Control? Who needs control when you're a Democrat? Being a Democrat is all about following your heart and giving in to your impulses.

Yes lack of control was a big problem with Bill, Hillary and the whole Clinton administration. And now the Clinton Administration is back. What fun!

"The negotiating behind the scenes must have been brutal even as the smiles and coyness were the front page story."

Part of those negotiations was in regard to the disclosure of Clinton's contributors to his Presidential Library and Massage Parlor. They came to an agreement and I'm sure it's all very much in favor of keeping it UN-disclosed.

The first sign of friction in the Obama camp as Mrs Clinton demands - and gets - a purge of her critics before accepting Secretary of State role
By Leonard Doyle in Washington
Sunday, 23 November 2008

Before Hillary Clinton has been formally offered the job as Secretary of State, a purge of Barack Obama's top foreign policy team has begun.

The advisers who helped trash the former First Lady's foreign policy credentials on the campaign trail a More..re being brutally shunted aside, as the price of her accepting the job of being the public face of America to the world. In negotiations with Mr Obama this week before agreeing to take the job, she demanded and received assurances that she alone should appoint staff to the State Department. She also got assurances that she will have direct access to the President and will not have to go through his foreign policy advisers on the National Security Council, which is where many of her critics in the Obama team are expected to end up.

The first victims of Mrs Clinton's anticipated appointment will be those who defended Mr Obama's flanks on the campaign trail. By mocking Mrs Clinton's claims to have landed under sniper fire in Bosnia or pouring scorn on her much-ballyhooed claim to have visited 80 countries as First Lady they successfully deflected the damaging charge that he is a lightweight on international issues.

Foremost among the victims of the purges is her old Yale Law School buddy Greg Craig, a man who more than anyone led the rescue of his presidency starting the very night Kenneth Starr's lurid report into the squalid details of the former president's sex scandal with Monica Lewinsky were published on the internet in 1998. Despite his long and loyal friendship with the Clintons, Mr Craig threw his lot in with Mr Obama at an early stage in the presidential election campaign.
