Revenge… a dish best served as soon as possible

Team Obama has struck once again and it seems the Health czar idea that Karl came up with months ago has been modified.  Now the plan is becoming clear, Obama is trying not to just neutralize Hillary, but Bill too.  I talked to Karl this morning before the G20 started up again, and Karl was quite impressed with the move to drop Hillary’s name in for Secretary of State.

Karl thought that the whole process was about trying to kill two birds with one stone, in this case the stone is the dead weight Secretary of State position.  The way it works, if Hillary accepts the role, she’ll have to copt poor Bill as a goodwill ambassador for her based on her campaign pledge, effectively making him a tool for the Obama White House.  On the other hand, if Bill doesn’t play ball, he’ll essentially be trying to dance around Hillary’s foreign policy role as dictated by Obama and risk confrontation at home.  That way, the trap is set up so that Bill becomes marginalized permanently either way.  As for Hillary, well, no need to worry about her in 2012, and since she’d essentially become Obama’s bitch, no one will ever hear from her again.

On the other hand, if  someone else beat Hillary out for the position.  She is going to be humiliated one more time, and one more payback for the way the primaries went down.  Either way, Obama gets to put down one of the Clintons.

So I asked Karl what would be the best move for the Clintons?  Karl thought that was simple, Hillary should flat out reject the role by saying her duties to her constituents in NY is too important.  That way, it insulates Bill, keeps the possibility of being humiliated by someone else beating her out.  But it would have to happen soon.  The longer she waits, the more likely that Obama will pick someone else for the job or she gives the perception that she’s so desperate she is willing to be the bitch.  I asked Karl who would be the likely choice for Obama if Hillary declines, and Karl’s money is on a Republican.
