Obama officially names Hillary as his Sec. of State pick

Posted by: ST on December 1, 2008 at 2:24 pm

Of course, Hillary’s name is the big name being discussed today, but here’s a more complete list of who President-elect Obama has selected for what has been billed as his “national security team.”

I know many of you are worried about Hillary being our Secretary of State but hey … at least it wasn’t John Kerry who was picked for that cabinet position.

Quote of the day: Shortly after Obama announced his picks, a reporter slyly asked him about what he’d said about Hillary’s foreign policy creds back during the primaries. As I’m sure you’ll rememeber, it wasn’t very flattering. Click here to watch the video.

Wonder if the same reporter thought to ask Hillary the same thing of what she said about Obama’s foreign policy creds during the primaries? :-?

MKH has more video from the presser here, including clips of both Hillary and VP-elect Biden speaking.

    I watched the video and this is what I heard:

    Ahem… Stutter stutter stutter stutter….

    I get aggravated listening to his stutter.. He is truly nothing without his teleprompter!

    I just finished reading Bob Newhart’s autobiography, and he correctly points out that this way of speaking–which he shares with Obama–is a stammer, not a stutter. Stutterers have trouble with initial sounds only.

    Oh my… Stammer.. excuse me.

  4. Trish says:

    Well, BeachBabe, are you actually trying to say that Obama has a physical speech impairment that is not his fault? That’s a stutter.
    Call him a stutterer and you let him off the hook.
