(CNN) - Luckily Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has friends in high places.
Clinton's plane broke down in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia where the nation's top diplomat held a town-hall meeting at a local college.
Fortunately, Gen. David Petraeus was nearby, having met with Saudi King Abdullah in Riyadh Monday.
Petraeus and his entourage agreed to pick Clinton up on their way home, but there is a small hitch. Because Clinton is a higher-ranking government official than Petraeus, the plane technically becomes hers when she steps foot on board.
Yes but the Republicans like to pretend that America is a fascist military police state where the Generals make policy decisions instead of civilian elected officials.
Does Toyota make planes, too?
Hope that plane gets fixed don't need any accidents.
i love general petreaus,calm and smart and calculating,and ofcourse my favorite lady secreatery clinton.i would love to be in that ride and hear some conversation,bet choo it would be interesting.
How very sweet and touching, keeping these folks constantly in the news! This is some critical story, right, CNN?
The Real Story: STOP THIS KILLING, AMERICA! Let the People live! Genocide is why the World Hates you so much and you do it so well with Lies and Deceit!
"...the plane technically becomes hers when she steps foot on board.
Thats why I do not give a ride to hitch-hikers...............
General Petraeus is a gentleman and hardly going to worry about who's plane it is.
Let's look at this as an example of 'someone was aware of what was going on in their region and found a solution.'
Relish it. Cherish it. This doesn't happen nearly often enough.
You've gotta love the chain of command.
""Doing so would remove any appearance of unfair gamesmanship by the Democrats while affirming their belief that voters, and not party bosses, should be the final arbiters of elections,"
So...after all we listened to in response to what happened in MA with respect to the changing of the rules, etc., the GOPer's response in Indiana is that Dem leadership should break their own rules and extend the deadline or, by following the rules, appear to be engaged in "gamesmanship"??? Do these guys even listen to the words coming out of their mouths or is it all just sort of a political form of Wernicke's aphasia...resulting in an explosive-diarrhea-style partisan talking point word salad every time they open their mouths?
Carpooling is cool.
Cue the cameras, I'm SURE that there will be more machine gun fire to dodge. But this time, if its ours, it might be real. LOL.
Within the next 8 months..........if Clinton announces that she is going to resign from her current position.........This means that she is going to challenge Obama in 2012.
Good use of our military hardware!
Jane – no one is forcing you to live in the USA, feel free to LEAVE any time you want. Some of your neighbors may even help you pack to make sure you don't come back.
General Petraeus just added to a long list of respectedgenerals that the US ever has. And alone with former first lady turned State Secretary who one one gained as much support as the president did during the election..I think we have a good choice of the leaders.Now image they both serve under "Commander in Chief" Sarah Palin !!!!
Interesting turn of events. Didn't she rip him when he appeared before Congress a few years back?
Actually, the plane belongs to the American taxpayers, regardless of who is on the plane. It does not belong to Clinton. But let's not let facts get in the way of politician's egos.
They talked about how President Obama's strategies in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq are going so well that fairly soon Dick Cheney will be a drooling, babbling mess (oops, too late).
Now, I'm a democrat, and I don't like war either, but genocide...really??? That goes waaaaaay too far.
Umm, why exactly was General Petraeus meeting with the King of Saudi Arabia?
What did they do during the plane trip back? I bet they talked about how President Obama's strategies in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq are going so well that fairly soon Dick Cheney will be a drooling, babbling mess (oops, too late).
