How GOP Attacks Could Keep Hillary at State
From behind the Wall Street Journal paywall, Hillary Clinton hints she may remain Secretary of State a little longer if the President is reelected.
Rupert Murdoch’s house organ, which regales us freely with Obama bad news, is stingy with details, but in followups, Mrs. Clinton’s spokesman concedes that “she wants to ensure continuity and realizes the confirmation of her successor might not exactly line up with Jan. 22, 2013.”
Translation: GOP attacks on her handling of the Libyan misfortunes could keep the Secretary in office until exonerated. If neanderthal Congressmen like Darrell Issa keep pounding her on it, she might extend Clinton branding of Barack Obama’s handling of foreign affairs well into his second term.
