I wonder if this is true, and I wonder who’s leaking it — and why. Keep in mind, of course, that The Daily is a Rupert Murdoch property:
At the tail end of her mission to bolster the Libyan opposition, which has suffered days of losses to Col. Moammar Gadhafi’s forces, Clinton announced that she’s done with Obama after 2012 — even if he wins again.
“Obviously, she’s not happy with dealing with a president who can’t decide if today is Tuesday or Wednesday, who can’t make his mind up,” a Clinton insider told The Daily. “She’s exhausted, tired.”
Well, yes. So this does have the ring of truth, unfortunately. If there’s anything I could say about Obama, it’s that he’s a ditherer. And believe it or not, it is sometimes more useful to make the wrong decision quickly than to drag things out as if it were a graduate seminar.
I wouldn’t agree with Clinton, either; it sounds as if she’s pushing for war with Libya. So we’re screwed either way.
