Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
While shopping at Costco today, a man loitering near the pickle jars noticed the "Hillary 2008" button (I volunteered at Obama's campaign HQ and found it in a pile of miscellany) on my jacket. He asked me, "What do you think of Hillary as Secretary of State?"
Surprised, I replied, "She'd be great. She's got the deception, the deviousness, studies up on the issues, and can turn on enough charm when she needs it."
The man stared at me, smiled and said: "You're not really a Hillary supporter, are you?"
"Well, sure I am. For Secretary of State. Better than Kissinger, if she takes it."
Didn't mention that I've been predicting this all year. Or that she bears a physical resemblance to Talleyrand.
