Excerpt Of The Day: Congrats To The Clintons!
“Congratulations to Hillary (and Bill) Clinton – who seem to have won the presidential election, despite the official results on Nov. 4.
That’s certainly a reasonable conclusion, anyway, based on the folks President-elect Obama is eyeing for his administration – folks such as former Clinton officials Eric Holder and Rahm Emanuel and Hillary Clinton herself.
It’s déjÃ vu all over again for Team Clinton – and America. And it’s already prompting reminders of all the sordid affairs that attended that era.
On Tuesday, for instance, it was reported that Holder would be Obama’s attorney general. As deputy AG under then-President Bill Clinton, Holder played a key role in a Clinton-era scandal: the pardoning of fugitive financier Marc Rich.
Meanwhile, talk swirls that Hillary herself might be secretary of state. Obama’s folks are now sorting through Bill Clinton’s complex financial arrangements to assess conflicts of interest, a process that in itself recalls the spaghetti-like ethical issues from his presidency.” — New York Post
