Will Hillary Clinton Leave Secretary Of State Position If Obama Is Re-elected?

With the recent developments over the last month on the attack of a US Consulate in Benghazi and the death of 4 American including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, it must be exceptionally hard for Hillary Clinton to carry out her duties as Secretary of State. Under such incompetence of the Obama administration, Hillary has had to take blame for the absolute screw up that happened in Libya at our embassy there. We are sure Hillary had little to do with what actually transpired, but so as to not jeopardize President Obama's reelection bid, she decided it was best to fall on her sword.

Here's the lowdown from the Washington Post:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said she will serve only one term. But in a new interview with The Wall Street Journal, she suggested it was possible — if “unlikely” — that she would stay in the post a bit longer.

“A lot of people have talked to me about staying,” Mrs. Clinton said, declining to be more specific. When asked if current events will force her departure date to slip, she said it was “unlikely,” but for the first time left open that possibility for the short term.

One of the most popular and respected members of the Obama administration, Clinton faces the possibility that her legacy will be marred by the attacks in Benghazi and questions about diplomatic security. She has taken full responsibility for any security lapses and defended the administration’s sometimes confusing accounts of what happened, saying, “Everyone who spoke tried to give the information they had.”

I can't imagine Ms Clinton wanting to stay on a day longer than absolutely necessary with this bunch running the show now. With her political experience, it must be a nightmare working with such clowns and amateurs. Hopefully Clinton won't have to worry about actually resigning because quite possibly America will decide to fire the whole bunch in a landslide in the next few days.
