Buzzfeed is running a story titled “Libya Threatens Clinton Legacy — and State Does Damage Control.”
Obviously, Hillary Clinton is going to be running for President in 2016. Obviously, Barack Obama wants to be reelected in 2012. This puts them at interesting cross-purposes.
Obama — being the famous blame-shifter that he is — would like to off-load responsibility for the terrible foreign policy debacles onto the State Department. But he can’t fire Hillary because of her position in the party — and her husband’s. And obviously, Hillary (and Bill) will fight like the blazes against any attempt to saddle her with the administration’s foreign policy failures.
