Bill Clinton for Secretary of State!

"Barack Obama will not allow the world's problems to obscure its opportunities. Everywhere, in rich and poor countries alike, hardworking people need good jobs; secure, affordable healthcare, food, and energy; quality education for their children; and economically beneficial ways to fight global warming. These challenges cry out for American ideas and American innovation. When Barack Obama unleashes them, America will save lives, win new allies, open new markets, and create new jobs for our people.

Most important, Barack Obama knows that America cannot be strong abroad unless we are strong at home. People the world over have always been more impressed by the power of our example than by the example of our power."

The power of our example.

Get out there and vote! There is still time to register. Check out your state's deadlines here.

Yes yes... powerful words from a man who had the opportunity several times over to stop BinLaden yet did not.

You gotta hand it to Clinton's speech writer. He is a brilliant man. And kudos for Clinton himself, for the ability to read in front of large crowds.

That's funny...I get where you're going with that. Totally discount the years of economic surplus and leadership with foreign affairs that he brought us, too. And jobs. And his outstanding advances in the fight against the world AIDS crisis. Yep, kudos to that speech writer.

YES! That's exactly where I was going. That insane leadership with foreign affairs we had. Worked so well it brought us NAFTA. I loved me some NAFTA. Heck, without it I wouldn't have been able to tell 40 men and thier families 2 weeks before Christmas that thier jobs went over to China and they were no longer employed! After all, who needs a full military ( which got chopped to 1/3 the force) when you have such strong business to deal with overseas. Boo Ya for us!

Guess what. It doesn't matter who gets into office. It's just a fight between a douche and a turd sandwich and we all know it.

I'll take the turd sandwich please.
