Hillary Clinton still intends to step down as secretary of state. That will take place likely “days” after President Barack Obama’s second inauguration in January. Hillary and Bill Clinton sold their political souls and their reputations to get Obama elected again. In the wake of Benghazi, Hurricane Sandy victims and the now uncovered drones shot at by Iranian war planes and the administration just letting it happen…it would seem Hillary wants to get out early to re-evaluate her brand, which has been tarnished in Obama’s administration.
A happy face was put on this news with this statement:
“The Secretary has been honored to serve as President Obama’s Secretary of State, and has loved every minute of leading this Department and being part of the State family,” a Clintons spokesman says in an email. “But yes, you can confirm yet again that she’s been clear about her intention to leave after the first term.”
When asked for clarification on what date Clinton would step down, the spokesman, Philippe Reines, says, “She has said that she wants to ensure continuity, and realizes the confirmation of her successor might take a period of days beyond that.”
I guess I would be wondering if she would be brought up on charges because of the scandals. That remains to be seen.
