Chris Hitchens doesn't like Hillary Clinton

And he doesn't think she should be Secretary of State.

Here is an awesome excerpt:

"Why is Sen. Clinton, the spouse of the great influence-peddler, being nominated in the first place? In exchange for giving the painful impression that our State Department will be an attractive destination for lobbyists and donors, what exactly are we getting? George Marshall? Dean Acheson? Even Madeleine Albright? No, we are getting a notoriously ambitious woman who made a fool of herself over Bosnia, at the time and during the recent campaign, and who otherwise has no command of foreign affairs except what she's picked up second-hand from an impeached ex-president, a disbarred lawyer, and a renter of the Lincoln Bedroom."

Hmmm, guess he doesn't care too much for Bill either.

On the plus side, she will resign from the Senate and then ... she can be fired from the Sec State spot.

/I'm struggling for some silver lining here. Be easy.
