    Too bad her budget’s getting slashed. One more year, Madame Secretary — then you can begin planning your 2016 campaign.

      I’m with you on that one, but I hope is 2012!

        Honestly, 2012 isn’t going to happen. 2016 is more likely. She would never challenge a sitting democratic president because she is too loyal to the democratic party. Whether the democrats deserve that loyalty is an issue up for debate ;).

        I wish she would be put on the Obama ticket as the VP- I respect Biden but if Obama wins it is unlikely Biden will run for POTUS in 2016 and if he did, he would lose. It’s a waste to have a VP that doesn’t intent to run for POTUS (in my view).

      Yeah, who needs money for diplomacy and international aid and development? Congress would much rather spend that money on wars and greasing the pockets of private defense contractors and the military industrial complex while doing nothing about the tens of billions of taxpayer dollars lost to fraud and abuse by those companies.

      Oh, but don’t worry, while foreign aid budgets are being reduced significantly, one country will not only be exempt from such cuts but will likely get MORE money- ISRAEL! Yes, they are a fully developed, first world economy who weathered the financial crisis with barely a hiccup and yes they have low unemployment and yes they have government healthcare (ie. socialized medicine) and yes the government subsidizes the settlements and on and on. It’s sort of like the US taxpayer is helping to subsidize Israel’s social and military programs while back here at home, our Congress would never allow taxpayer dollars to go for those social programs here at home (national healthcare, social safety net, etc).

      So, while the US taxpayer is told to tighten their belt and sacrifice economically for the good of the future of our country, we don’t ask the same of a foreign country in better economic circumstances- they will not be asked to sacrifice economically for one single minute with regards to be given large amounts of taxpayer dollars.

    Notice the difference between the cabinet pics and the pics with the women. She looks glum in the cabinet pics and so happy in the other pics.

      That’s what I too noticed.

    I noticed that too. Why is she so happy in one picture and sad in another. She is being sincere though in her emotions at least.
