Hillary Slams Administration Vetting Process

Hillary vented frustration against the Obama administration’s vetting rules today, declaring that the process for vetting Jr. officials is a “nightmare.”  It was a rare outburst from a cabinet official speaking out against administration policy.  Said Clinton at a townhall meeting of State Department employees:

It’s frustrating beyond words.  I pushed very hard, when I knew I was coming here, to get permission from the White House to be able to tell you that help is on the way and someone will be nominated shortly.  I was unable.  The message came back: ‘We’re not ready’.

I’ve often wondered if Hillary isn’t setting up an endgame where, as Obama’s popularity declines, she resign es over some flap in a high-profile manner, and then mounts a primary challenge.  I wouldn’t put anything past her, and I do not think for a second that she has given up her dream of being President.  That being said, it is going to be incredibly difficult for her to pull it off, but she could do some serious damage to him in the meantime.

I love these unflattering Hillary pics you find…another classic. Once the Republicans take over in 2010, she will resign. I have believed that from the moment she was nominated as Secretary of State, she’d resign and mount a primary challenge. Hillary wants badly to go up against Sarah Palin!

I believe Hillary carries a grudge with Obama…..and well…look at others she was upset with in the past. I would not want her upset with me….lol. She will destroy him in some way….politically speaking.
