Oh goodness, Hillary’s journey to the White House is something straight out of some cruel political joke. She refused to admit defeat when clearly it was over, she tried as hard as she could and still got nowhere. And now, when a place on the White House staff is so close she can touch it, it is yanked away faster than you can say “6 More Years in the Senate”. Apparently, some clause is in the Constitution states that if the pay is raised on a cabinet position while an elected congressman is serving, they are ineligible for that position. Well looky here, George raised the pay for Secretary of State back in January. Hillary was a senator in January. Here lies the problem. So, unless Barack pulls a Nixon (“Pulling a Nixon” is never something you want to do), and lowers the pay to make her eligible, looks like Hillary will have to scurry right back into the Senate until next time. Obviously, it’s just not meant to be.
I’ll be interested to see how this all plays out. I’m mostly interested to see whether or not they abide by the constitution. Most of the liberaloids don’t think the constitution is relevant to modern life, so I would not be surprised if they just ignored it. If that’s the case, I’ll go as far as to say Barack better make sure he’s got an available senate seat come 2012, because blatantly going against the CONSTITUTION is not going to seat well anyone less liberal than Michael Moore.
