She Said Yes

According to the NYT. Madam Secretary.

Looks like Billy Jeff is going to become an "international" man of mystery. Yeah-babee!

Honestly, I'm torn on this one. On the one hand, she has considerably more experience in this arena than The One. On the other hand, her husband's administration is famous for Chinese off-shore donations in return for...whatever. AND wasn't she part of the crew that ignored Bin Laden and Al Qaeda for eight years. Okay, I guess I - personally - feel a little bit safer. We'll see.

What baffles me is how this goes as a political move. Yes, she'll be too preoccupied to focus on a full-blown campaign for 2012 but she (and her staffers) can also do considerable damage in undermining this administration.

And just what is the time-frame "over-under" for a secret diplomatic overture on the part of her husband (not authorized by her boss, that is)? Hmmm.

At the very least, this is going to provide a nice little soap opera for the next few years.
