When President Clinton said “I did not have sex with that woman”, and then allowed his wife to go on shows like the “Today” show and defend him, many wondered how she could stay with him after the truth came to light. Many have criticized Hillary for staying with Bill for her own political gain, others have said their’s was always a relationship of convenience.
Whatever her reasons were for dealing with Bill, they are, after all, their personal business.
So when Vice President Biden appeared at the State Dept. to swear Hillary Clinton in as the Secretary of State, by her side stood her three closest allies and confidants, her mother Dorothy Rodham, her daughter Chelsea, and her husband, the 42nd President, Bill Clinton.
While some are saying that Hillary’s comments were embarassing to President Clinton, for most, she was sincerely thanking her husband and her family, and as she framed her words, she could sense how her words would be taken, so she put the humor to it. When all is said and done, the life that Bill and Hillary Clinton have shared has been full of “all kinds of experiences”. Isn’t that what we could all say!!??
The Senate vote was 94-2, and with that, former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton was confirmed and sworn in as the Secretary of State. Timing on the Senate’s behalf wasa bit off, and thus she missed the first White House meeting of President Obama’s foreign policy team…..but Vice President Biden was probably happy to fill in for her (based on Jill Biden’s comments on Oprah).
The confirmation of Sen. Clinton made it official that her Senate seat for New York is vacant, and NY Governor David Patterson must now appoint her replacement.
For weeks, the speculation has gone between Carolina Kennedy and NY Attorney General Andrew Cuomo. This evening, the New York Post is reporting that Caroline Kennedy has notified Gov. Patterson that she is withdrawing her name from the competition list for Clinton’s Senate seat. Ms. Kennedy is reportedly withdrawing for personal reasons. It is not a secret that Ms. Kennedy avoids any positions that require her to disclose her finances, and many speculate that this is the premise behind her ithdrawal.
At this point, we can assume that Gov. Patterson will most likely appoint Andrew Cuomo to the position within the next 48 hours.
