Yesterday America -- tomorrow the world?
Well, at long last all has been revealed! I've thought all along that Bill Clinton was after the UN Secretary General position, that is why he has been running all over the world meeting with the leaders of other countries. He has been campaigning for votes.
It was too strange that Hillary didn't run for president this year. She couldn't be president of the US with Bill wanting the UN job, someone else has to be his sponsor, enter King of the Clowns, Kerry. Once Bill is the Secretary General, the way is clear for Hillary to run for president. She can easily challenge Kerry in 2008 for the Democratic nomination.
All the while that we were thinking that the Clintons wouldn't want Kerry to win this year, they were actually wanting him to win, because it is all part of their plan. Boy, you have got to give them credit for the way they try to manipulate everyone.
Unfortunately, this means there will be no leak from Hillary's secret FBI files at the last minute to compromise Kerry. I sure hope that Karl Rove has something up his sleeve, because the Clintons have too much ridding on this to let GW Bush win this time around.
Analysis: Clinton eyes U.N. post
By ROLAND FLAMINI, UPI Chief International Correspondent
WASHINGTON, Oct. 20 (UPI) -- Former U.S. President Bill Clinton has set his sights on becoming U.N. secretary-general. A Clinton insider and a senior U.N. source have told United Press International the 56-year-old former president would like to be named leader of the world body when Kofi Annan's term ends early in 2006.
"He definitely wants to do it," the Clinton insider said this week.
A Clinton candidacy is likely to receive overwhelming support from U.N. member states, particularly the Third World. Diplomats in Washington say Clinton would galvanize the United Nations and give an enormous boost to its prestige. But the former president's hopes hang on a crucial question that will not be addressed until after the presidential elections: can he get the support of the U.S. government -- a prerequisite for nomination?
The political wisdom is that a second George W. Bush presidency would cut him off at the pass.
