    Oh, Hillary, you are looking so tired. Take care of yourself. We need you. It's not easy doing the job of Secretary of State and trying to keep the President from destroying our country in every conceivable way. You are the one who should be sitting in the Oval Office now. Through some hideous act of fate, an inept, inexperienced, shallow-minded individual grabbed that seat. Oh, Lord, I hope we can hang on until 2010!

    Obama is just sending her there to keep her out of his way and to make it look like there might be some chance he can reach an agreement that he can hang his hat on.
