Hillary and Foggy Bottom

Count me among those dubious about the idea of Hillary Clinton’s becoming secretary of state. While it appears the courtship is serious, I’m still recalling that the campaign exposed her as having little in the way of executive skills or ability to mediate differences among strong-willed subordinates. Those flaws make it unlikely that she’d be a success at State, with its coterie of careerists who are notoriously resistant to political leadership. 

One point in her favor: She’d be a helluva lot better than Bill Richardson, a blowhard who’s nothing but smoke and mirrors.
