Hillary Clinton was on This Week with George Stephanapoulos today (transcript here). She described why she decided to serve in Obama’s cabinet, even after she’d made clear her belief (now validated by the world) that Obama’s nowhere near ready to be President. The thought process she described helped me understand why Team Obama is so effective at making every situation it touches turn far worse:
“I thought, you know, we are in just so many deep holes that everybody had better grab a shovel and start digging out,” Clinton said.
Tell me, dear readers . . . if you were stuck in a deep hole, would you be using a shovel to get out? Or would, perhaps, a rope or a ladder be a better solution?
