Oh, my. Suppose Senator Clinton becomes Secretary of State. That puts her fourth in line for the Presidency. Then the Illinois cesspool reaches up and drags down (then) President Obama along with Vice President Biden, aided by leaks from Cheif of Staff Rahm Emmanuel. Speaker Pelosi and Senator Byrd decline the promotion (the former because nobody likes her, the latter because it would be crazy). Boom, President Hillary Clinton.

Suddenly it all makes sense…

She can’t become SoS because the recent congressional pay raise forbids any congresscritter from benefiting from said pay raise.

She’s just holding place until, in the words of the immoral Tom Lehrer, “someone we* like can be (s)elected.”

*meaning — they like better

Actually, it does make sense.

Because Emmanuel would set him up. Surely you can’t believe Biden would be smart enough to not get tricked in to getting caught with his hand in the cookie jar?

i don’t know, peole have pretty low expectations for joe, and would probably accept it if he said “i was taking the money to turn it into the treasury on my way home from the office”.
