Hillary Clinton Staying as Far Away from Charlotte, Obama & the DNC Convention as Physically Possible … Can You Blame Her?
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is sitting out the Democrat National Convention in Charlotte, NC next week. Instead, she will be half way around the world. Can any one blame her? Probably the most popular Democrat is staying as far away from Obama and the DNC convention probably for two reasons. One, to keep the stink from the convention from getting on her if she wants to run for office in 2016 and two, she would over shadow Obama causing many to think … Why not Hillary? As it is, former President Bill Clinton is supposed to provide the keynote speech. Rather bizarre, seeing that an up and comer and political superstar usually fills the role. However, when the Democrats are void of any and all you have is reminding Americans of days gone by rather than present day Obamaland, what else would one expect?
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as a sitting administration official, does not have any role at the Democratic National Convention next week in Charlotte. But she seems to gone out of her way to avoid the festivities, as she is traveling this week and next to the Cook Islands, Indonesia, China, Timor-Leste, Brunei, and Russia.
“The Cook Islands this year are the hosts of one of the most important institutions of the Pacific called the Pacific Island Forum,” a senior State Department official said Thursday. “It’s a group that meets yearly with a number of working groups. It’s been in existence almost half a century; it’s very significant.”
No one with any political aspirations or and Democrat who wanted to win their political race in 2012 would want to come near this convention.
