Clinton for Secretary General II
Former U.S. President Bill Clinton pauses during his speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, January 27, 2005. Clinton has been chosen as a special U.N. envoy to ensure the reconstruction effort for the Asian tsunami victims remains a high-profile operation, the United Nations said on Tuesday.
Let's do the math. You have a group of former Clinton foreign policy experts call Kofi Annan to Richard Holbrooke's apartment to discuss Kofi's fate. Kofi's still breathing so he obviously did not touch the Guacamole dip. Now Kofi appoints Clinton to a high profile role in the U.N. effort to do as little as possible for the Asian tsunami victims. You can almost hear the scheming. Somebody is playing someone. Or maybe Kofi and Bill have made a deal. In that case you can guess who is being played.
Will Bill turn on Kofi? How much/what is Annan going to get for stepping aside? (Cue dramatic piano music) Stay tuned to Legacy Watch.
P.S. Doesn't Clinton look like he has been eating dinner with Victor Yuschenko's Ukrainian buddies.
Were both to be successful, Bill and Hillary Clinton could become the political tag team of the 21st century, with the former heading the United Nations and the latter becoming the chief executive of the most powerful nation on earth. If, as president, Hillary's deep-rooted liberal proclivities won the day, her husband and the United Nations could become surrogates of U.S. foreign policy and instruments of a new world order.A certain slant of light
Think about it. It scares hell out of me!
