Hillary Clinton's last day as Secretary of State. Update!


Are politics supposed to be that much fun?

Having this picture taken was not the ONLY thing that Hillary Clinton did before she left office yesterday. She also gave an interview in which she addressed the Benghazi conspiracy fanatics:

"There are some people in politics and in the press who can't be confused by the facts," she said. "They just will not live in an evidence-based world. And that's regrettable. It's regrettable for our political system and for the people who serve our government in very dangerous, difficult circumstances." 

Well gee, I wonder just who she could be talking about?

    A nice picture of three good friends...Hey Sarah, where are your buddies?
    Oh, I forgot you have none.

    1. Sarah's buddies are either in jail (AIP thugs) or running for cover.
      Ain't it a shame?

    39 Photos That Prove Hillary Clinton Is — And Always Has Been — A Total Badass

    Hillary Clinton stepped down as Secretary of State on Friday, returning to private life after 31 years in the public eye.
    In those three decades, Clinton has gone from one of the country's most divisive political figures to one of its most beloved. As First Lady of Arkansas — and later the United States — and then as a U.S. Senator and 2008 presidential candidate, Clinton navigated policy battles, scandal, and five campaigns, breaking down gender barriers at each step. She endured our ridicule over her fashion choices and our judgement over her marriage, facing down her critics with humor and steely resolve.
    The country finally came around to Clinton during her four years as President Barack Obama's Secretary of State. She exits Foggy Bottom today with sky-high approval ratings and a cadre of loyal fans who are ready to spring into action should she decide to run for president again in 2016.
    But even if Clinton never returns to politics, her legacy is already established as the most bad-ass chick in Washington.

    Clinton Brought Women's Rights In From The Diplomatic Margins

    The most striking legacy of Hillary Clinton's four years at the State Department is an institutional shift in the way international women's rights are viewed, and a sense that the place of women and girls in a range of societies proper subject of high-level diplomacy.
    "What Hillary did that was unprecedented was to put [women's issues] in the center and not have it be a box-checking thing, and for women profesionals that's been a hard thing to do," said Heather Hurlburt, director of the National Security Network and a former staffer in Madeleine Albright's State Department. "There's a fear that you would be defined as a women's issues person."
    "But Hillary was fearless about taking up women's issues," Hurlburt said, "and the fact that it's now such that a male Secretary of State will have to maintain the initiatives that she institutionalized at State — it won't just be the project of a woman Secretary of State anymore."
    Clinton was known for meeting with women's rights activists and organizations during her travels abroad, as well as environmental groups, anti-poverty NGOs, and other things that make up a sector of foreign policy that former diplomat Aaron David Miller calls "planetary humanism." Clinton's ambassador for global women's issues, Melanne Verveer, traveled to over 60 countries on women's rights-related missions, according to the Washington Post.
    In interviews and speeches, she's returned to the theme over and over again, including in her farewell address to the Council on Foreign Relations on January 31: "If women and girls everywhere were treated as equal to men in rights, dignity and opportunity, we would see political and economic progress everywhere," Clinton said.

      Hillary has proven herself to be capable and not to be messed with...God, I hope she runs in 2016. In 2008 I was torn between Hillary and Barack. I finally chose Barack in the primaries and hoped one day Hillary would get back in the race. She deserves a much needed rest to recharge her batteries. The RWNJ's hate her as much as they hate Barack Obama but she is in good company....

      I think the beauty of Barach being elected prez before Hillary is his ability, along with the campaign's coalition of young people, and sealing up generations of future Dem voters (baby whisperer). It was "timing". We needed fresh blood, the Clintons may not have pulled it off as well. If Hillary retires without running in 2016, she is already a legacy beyond compare, man or woman. period.

    She’s the most important woman in America. More: she is almost certainly the most important woman in all of our political history. Already, even if this retirement proves to be permanent, which few people think it will be. No? Well, who, then? Who has been first lady, senator, secretary of state? No other woman, that’s for sure. Not many men have held as many high-profile jobs and performed them as well.

      She's quite possibly the only woman who's been hated and liked in a small timespan.

    Re: Benghazi conspiracy. Yeah, my dad thinks Hilary is a lesbian AND she had an affair with Vince Foster. People believe bad things about the Clintons because they WANT to believe them. Just like people out there believe that Obama is gay, the theory behind that is that two guys from Trinity, his church, got shot. The areas surrounding Trinity aren't so hot...so...because two guys from his church got shot they must be gay and so is he? Quite the leap of logic. I've actually seen comments where people claim that he's gay and that he ALSO had an affair with a woman from his 2004 Senate race. Again. People believe this stuff because they WANT to. If there were half as much evidence to support these theories as there is about Babygate, these two would have been drawn and quartered.

      I call bullshit on your 'concern trolling' bringing that crap about President Obama here to make some cockamamie point. You just wanted to get those stupid conspiracy theories posted here, as if you were innocently doing so. Bullshit. I'm on to you and you suck.

    She's one of my favorite people in the political arena. After thirty years of service, she deserves a vacation.
