A new day at the State Department: A Raucous Welcome for Hillary

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

(NOTE FROM JOHN: You have to watch this video. It's like the allies landing in occupied Europe. These are US diplomats. Not the most exuberant of people. One might even call them nerdy. Today, they're simply out of control. I'm half expecting Hillary to join the crowd in toppling a statue of Condi.)

Clearly, the diplomats at the State Department are happy with their new leadership. Watch the welcome she received from the normally reserved professionals at Foggy Bottom. This reaction is more important than the words spoken -- and Obama is heading over to the State Department later today to signal that we've got a new foreign policy:

Also, yesterday, Senator David "DC Madam" Vitter was one of only two Senators to vote against Hillary Clinton's confirmation in the full Senate. The other was wingnut Jim DeMint from South Carolina. Last week, Vitter was the only "NO" vote in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. I get that Vitter has been anointed as the titular leader of the GOP, but it seems like he has a personal vendetta against Hillary Clinton. I keep going back to the words of his wife:

His wife, Wendy, was asked by the Newhouse reporter: If her husband were as unfaithful as Livingston or former President Bill Clinton, would she be as forgiving as Hillary Rodham Clinton?

“I’m a lot more like Lorena Bobbitt than Hillary,” Wendy Vitter told Newhouse News. “If he does something like that, I’m walking away with one thing, and it’s not alimony, trust me.”

“I think fear is a very good motivating factor in a marriage,” she added. “Don’t put fear down.”
Just putting it out there. I mean, what else explains Vitter's obsessive behavior towards Hillary.
