Way back when the presidential race was still going on between Obama and McCain, I saw this on the news.
“No way, no how, no McCain, no Palin!” Mrs. Clinton declared.
After someone in the audience yelled, “Tell us about Palin,” Mrs. Clinton replied: “I don’t think that’s what this election is about. Anybody who believes that the Republicans, whoever they are, can fix the mess they created probably believes that the iceberg could have saved the Titanic”.
This was Hillary – my love/hate syndrome. She is smart, she is beautiful she is tough and she is intelligent. But I was for Obama and who ever said anything against him, promptly landed in my bad books. Then Obama won the Dem. Nomination and Hillary was out of the picture. I could deal with McCain as a rival but it was obvious that he was no match for Obama. He was a man holding on tightly to the same old ways of playing political games.
It was appreciated when she endorsed Obama. But I was still apprehensive when she announced she was campaigning for him. And slowly love for her crept back and soon she was a shining star among my favorites.
Now I hear that she is being considered for Sec. of State in Obama Government. ummmmm. I don’t like this idea.
And why is that?
I have good arguments. The biggest among them is – she is too opinionated, too strong headed and her ideas will clash with that of Obama’s. And if she does not get what she wants she – sort of – falls back on emotions … if anyone can still remember her on her campaign trail! Remember how she was saying just about anything about Obama? She wanted to get into the White House so bad that you could see the White House reflecting in her eyes. And now President Elect Barack Obama is rewarding her with a most prestigious post.
Well, what can I say. All I can do is wish him smooth sailing.
