Hillary Clinton for VP!

18 Jun

My first reaction to this piece in the Washington Post was “why not Hillary Clinton for president?”  After heaping loads of praise on Clinton her “incredible job as secretary of state,” the author goes on to say “based on experience alone, Hillary is far more qualified to be president than any of the Republicans being considered today, including Mitt Romney, Bobby Jindal, Tim Pawlenty and Palin.”

I guess it escapes the author that Clinton is far more qualified to be president than Obama as well.  Obama has been pummeled from the Right and the Left recently over his botched handling of the BP oil spill.  Since the beginning of the disaster, Obama has seemed out-of-touch, disengaged, aloof and has shown little leadership skills.  He has participated in political fundraisers, hosted multiple sports teams at the White House, and played golf (multiple times).  Not to mention, he did not visit the Gulf region until Day 12, did not address it nationally until Day 25, and did not meet with the BP executives in charge of the clean-up until Wednesday, June 16, which was Day 58.
