Hillary Clinton laughs

Reporters from Politico to The New York Daily News—which splashed the news on its front page with “Hill’s the One”—are all being told the same thing by unnamed Obama “aides.” Hillary is “on track” to becoming Obama’s secretary of state, the investigation into Bill’s fundraising has passed their smell test, and the appointment will be announced “after Thanksgiving.” So Obama continues to assemble his “team of rivals,” the Clinton saga takes an interesting twist and turn, and “No Drama Obama” has invited a little excitement into his administration. As The Wall Street Journal demurely puts it, quoting “foreign policy analysts”: “This contrast between Mr. Obama and Sen. Clinton could lead to some spirited policy debates in the White House.” They’re not kidding.
