But, what we do know is the old addage of, “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” Meaning there is real reason to why Obama chose Clinton to be Secretary of State. He needs her there to show experience, but the million dollar reason why is to hope she fails big time. And with a great deal of the dumped documents deal with foreign policy, it puts Hillary’s reputation on the line.
Her reputation is important, especially for her hope at another presidential run for 2012. And, with the hope off stealling the light, Obama has been looking for any reason to take that opportunity away. With his approval numbers at all time lows, anything to boost his standing instead of his closest opponent is needed to give any hope at all for a re-election bid.
