Could this be America's next Secretary of State?

Here's yet another reason to vote ABB - Anyone but Barack - in the 2012 elections. With Hillary Clinton having announced that she is stepping down at the end of Obama's term, this woman could be Barack Obama's next Secretary of State.

Let's go to the videotape.

Yes, the Irish News is reporting that Samantha Power, the woman being interviewed in the video above, may become the next Secretary of State.
A flattering New York Times profile has increased speculation that Samantha Power, the Dublin-born aide to President Obama, could be his next Secretary of State or National Security Adviser.

She has been the main architect, along with Hillary Clinton, of the Libya policy and has an increasing influence in the White House inner circle.

No Irish-born person in recent history has had such influence on a president. Power, now 40, moved to the US from Ireland at age 10.

With Hillary Clinton due to step down after Obama’s first term, she would be a live candidate to succeed her if Obama wins re-election.

The Times reported that on Monday night last, Samantha Power took to the podium at Columbia University in New York two hours before President Obama was due to address the nation on Libya and received a rock star reception.

Power, who is one of Obama’s key advisers on foreign policy, insisted that Libya was not going to be the main topic of conversation.

“I’m not going to talk much about Libya,” she said, as quoted in The Times.

However, when later questioned she defended the administration’s decision in establishing a no-fly zone, adding failure to do so would have been “extremely chilling, deadly and indeed a stain on our collective conscience.”
I hope and pray that whoever wins the Republican nomination this time will go after Obama full force and not like John McCain did with kid gloves. There is much to attack about Power, and Obama he can no longer disclaim his association with her as he did in 2008.

Did she really just level the "Jewish Lobby" blood libel? Wow.. she'll blend right in.

I'm guessing from context this interview predates the Hitnakut, so I wonder if she considers that sufficiently "Risking, rather Investing" in a future Palestinian state.

But I'm not wondering that hard.
