After an Obama campaign that was fanatically tight-lipped about leaking anything, there seems to be a whole lot of leaking going on regarding Hillary as a possible Secretary of State appointment.
If I didn’t think Obama was such an ethical, non-manipulative guy, I’d be wondering if the deal Hillary made to get her and Bill to enthusiastically endorse Obama, was that she would be made Secretary of State in such a way as to “launder” Bill’s questionable business dealings.
It would be so simple:
Step 1: Leak that Hillary was offered the job.
Step 2: Leak that she might not get the job because of problems in vetting Bill.
Step 3: Leak that aides think Bill shouldn’t be a problem.
Step 4: Hillary gets the job.
The Real Payoff: In the eyes of the public, Bill’s business dealings must be completely above board because “even Obama’s team was satisfied with the vetting process!”
I guess it’s a good thing I’m not a conspiracy theorist!
