Hillary Clinton As Secretary Of State? Is This Change?

All of the major news outlets are buzzing about the prospect that Senator Hillary Clinton is about to be selected by Barack Obama as the next Secretary of State of the United States.

CNN is reporting that Clinton had flown to Chicago and has met with Obama to discuss her future.

So is this change?

First Obama selects Joe Biden, who has decades of experience of being an establishment insider, for the number two position. Now he is about to select Hillary Clinton for the number three position in the government?

These selections just scream "more of the same!"

It is interesting to note that Hillary Clinton has close ties to the Council on Foreign Relations, which has produced every single Secretary of State since the 50s. In fact, almost all of the potential cabinet selections that are being floated by the Obama people either are members of the CFR or are closely tied to that organization.

So if Barack Obama keeps brining in establishment hacks and former members of the Clinton administration, what kind of "change" is that supposed to represent?

Vice President-elect Joe Biden has now appointed former Clinton administration aide Ran Klain as his chief of staff.

This comes one week after President-elect Barack Obama tapped Clinton aide Rahm Emanuel to head the White House as chief of staff.

The only way this new administration could be more "Clintonized" is if Hillary Clinton had been elected herself.

So is this change?

It sure seems to look like a lot more of the same Washington garbage that we have seen before.


  1. You got to have a secretary of State! He didn't say the postions would change!Secondly, the man has even been inaugarated yet! Let him become THE president before you consider it as the same garbage!He isn't president yet!Hillary would make a damned good secreatry of state!

  2. Is this change you ask ??? You better beleive it. Look at the mess this president has made with foreign relations. Now look at the Clinton Administration. If Bush had a brain in his head he should have continued Clintons policies. If Hillary brings with her 1% of her husbands polices this country would be a lot better off.
