Tension at 1600 Penn Ave
#1
OK, so its going to Clinton at State BIG JOB, and Richardson at Commerce, NOT AS BIG JOB.
After Richardson did his disloyal Judas act endorsing Obama so early when Richardson owes his career to the Clinton's, won't this be kinda STRESSFUL?

They're both adults and both know what the deal is. I like both choices myself,along with James Jones as NSA and the treasury guy(forgot his name). So far,I am thrilled with Mr. President elect,Obama.

Has Clinton actually agreed? The last I heard she was looking at the Senate seat as better than SecState. Under Obama she would have to be a masochist to run State.

Since Obama has so little experience, and his only personal associates are either machine pols or embarrassments, who else can he select except people he met during the campaign in front of the cameras - or holdovers from Clinton or Carter?

Rubin, or Summers?

As for the Beast, I suspect she is more interested in the Supreme Court, than anything else, other than president.

The Secretary of State is fourth in the line of presidential succession, after the Vice President, Speaker of the House, and President Pro Tempore of the Senate. It would really be remarkable if four people simultaneously went the way of Vince Foster, wouldn't it? Or terrorists could hit Washington. Or to borrow from a Tom Clancy novel, an airliner loaded with explosives could be kamikazied into the Capitol Building during a State of the Union Address. There is still hope for Hilary to become presdident!

Obama gambles on Hillary Clinton
Quote:But the main question is whether Mrs Clinton can subordinate not just her opinions but also her political ambitions to making the Obama administration a success. That must be in doubt. Her husband’s financial entanglements and irrepressible flair for scandal are further potential pitfalls. In weighing all this and choosing her regardless, Mr Obama has taken quite a risk – one that, in our view, is difficult to justify.
OMG, even the lefties are worried.

Will WJC be kept at home by a NY senate appointment? Now why would he give up his lucrative new career for that? Schumer might tell him to bend over.

We must make our choice between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy.

Obama seems to be following Sun-tzu advice-
"Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer."
Different eyes see different things. Different hearts beat on different strings.
But there are times for you and me when all such things agree.

You know when I learned about this line of succession in school I immediately had this thought. I mean really if you wanted to cripple American leadership this is the way. Take them all out at once.

If you want to cripple America take out infrastructure, in particular electricity.

The four faculties of theology, philosophy, medicine, and law have been the perennial seedbeds, not only of professional wisdom, but of the quackery and venality so generously exposed to public view by Plato, Rabelais, Molière, Swift, Gibbon, A. E. Housman, H. L. Mencken, and others. What took place in the Greco-Roman as in the Christian world was that fatal shift from leadership to management that marks the decline and fall of civilizations." - taken from a speech by Hugh Nibley

Well put, ghullio. And TheMan, as for taking out the infrastructure, focusing on electricity--please let me know before hand when it's about to happen, so I can invest in Duracell. Or maybe Gillette, which purchased Duracell, Inc. in 1996.

Perhaps an investment in Honda since they make generators.

A better infrastructure to take out is computer chips. It is reported that you can take nearly all of them out, in the USA with a nuke 300 miles up somewhere over the midwest. The electromagnetic pulse generated by it will fry nearly every chip in the US. If the chips are disabled, practically nothing will work, your car, the electric grid, your cell phone, etc. since these are now all chip controlled.

There is a B-movie that shows how dire a power outage of a few days would be to a a region like southern california. Not pretty. Certainly more devastating than losing those knuckleheads in washington.

We did have a power outage that affected the midwest for several days, a few years back. It was difficult negotiating intersections of major roads with the traffic lights out. But we survived.

Yeah that was the midwest though. Look at their response to major flooding compared to New Orleans. There are cultural differences between the mid west and say LA.
