Marginalized Clinton says it's absurd to call her marginalized


This might be the first time we've heard a peep from her since she contradicted Obama's stance on Iran several months ago, but don't call her marginalized!

I was very worried when Obama picked a Secretary of State who ran on a hawkish platform but people reassured me that Obama still had the power and if she stepped out of line she'd suddenly find herself without much to do.

Regardless of what she says, that's what I've seen happen.

...Or maybe it's just because she's not an insecure man.

Hillary Clinton wrote:

I believe in delegating power. I'm not one of these people who feels like I have to have my face in the front of the newspaper or on the TV every moment of the day. I would be irresponsible and negligent were I to say, ‘Oh, no. Everything must come to me.’ Now, maybe that is a woman's thing. Maybe I'm totally secure and feel absolutely no need to go running around in order for people to see what I'm doing. It's just the way I am. My goal is to be a very positive force to implement the kind of changes that the president and I believe are in the best interest of our country.

Hah! If he'd made her the VP, then I'd say she's marginalized.

Curry also asked Clinton whether she ever wishes her presidential bid had been successful so that she could be making the decisions instead of carrying out President Obama’s policies.

“I have to tell you, it never crosses my mind,” Clinton said

Come on, Hillary, you wouldn't be human if that didn't cross your mind. Frequently. But I guess that's the answer she has to give.

It doesn't surprise me if she's marginalized. She never had much foreign policy experience beyond maybe thinking about women's issues in the third world. She's more of a machine politician than a strategic thinker or diplomat. I don't think she's doing a bad job, but it's hard to stand out in a job for which you have little experience or inclination.
