I was ambivalent about Hillary at Secretary of State, but figured if Obama and Clinton can work out there differences, more power to him. Additionally, I find all the angst about former Clinton acolytes in the Obama White House to be pretty amusing:
More now on the “Raw Politics” of the attorney general pick and, in a larger sense, the retread factor, between John Podesta, Rahm Emanuel, Holder, and possibly Hillary Clinton, an awful lot of ex- Clintonites running around these days. Is it wise? Is Eric Holder a good choice, in any case.
Where, exactly, is Obama supposed to find qualified people with government experience if they did not cut their teeth in the Clinton administration? From the Bush administration? Clearly, Obama is bringing in a lot of new blood, but I have no problem with old hands like Eric Holder being tapped for administration jobs.
At any rate, all of this is a long way of me saying the following- now that David Broder has voiced his opinion and is forcefully opposed to Clinton as Secretary of State, let me state that I emphatically support her selection, and look forward to four and hopefully eight years of her at the State Department. I am not the brightest guy, but even I know to bet against the man who is wrong about every-god-damned-thing.
