Wither Hillary

There is little doubt Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been the most successful  member of the Obama Cabinet. She has demonstrated concern and support for human rights throughout the world, she has opposed dictators like Robert Mugabe and is both tough and caring in the application of foreign policy. She deserves kudos for her work in Myanmar and the results are evident in the slow erosion of military control.  Clinton has made clear that she will not attend the Democratic Convention in  order to keep foreign policy out of politics.

But, what about her future? Personally, we wish Obama dumped Joe Biden and replaced him on the ticket with Hillary Clinton. A Clinton  on the ticket would energize  women to new levels. But, if not in 2012 she is the most intriguing candidate in 2016.
