Secretary of State Clinton used every bit of leverage at her dispopsal to force the Obama Adminstration to make a decision on Libya — including a well-timed announcement/shot across the bow yesterday that she won’t serve another term as President Obama’s top State Department official.  She then led the successful effort at the United Nations Security Council to authorize air cover for Libya’s rebels, which could begin by tomorrow.

    We should’ve elected the most qualified candidate. Too much bromance in the air back in 2008.
    Half the nation was having fantasies of Brokeback Mountain Revisited: Urban Cowboy.

    As for that 3 AM call – he’d be out in the Rose Garden smoking a Newport and cranky Michelle would pick it up and hang up.
