Another Hillary “No” Vote

And here, on the Larry King program, Christopher Hitchens, who supported President Elect Barack Obama in the general election, thinks that the Hillary appointment as Secretary of State is a “no win” choice for Obama. Hitchens argues that Clinton carries lots of dirty underwear into the office, will serve as a co-president rather than as one among a “team of rivals,” a term popularized in the new book on Lincoln by Doris Kearns Goodwin, is overly ambitious and is not fit for the position.

Hitchens' critiques are generaly comprehensive. Paul Begala dissents and offers assurances.
