Hillary greets Emperor of Japan, keeps spine straight like steel, announces help for our ally

This is how you do it.

Compare/Contrast with this~

weak spine, weak leadership

And she is having tea with them Mr Obama. Somehow I still don’t think that precludes her gaining foreign policy experience (despite the Obama Campaign comments to the contrary  in 08.  snarky bastards)

Interestingly, now the MFM are calling her MS. Clinton. Hmm. Maybe they are seeing her for herself finally. The international MFM anyway.

…In her prepared remarks, Ms. Clinton also stressed the strength of the U.S.-Japan military alliance, calling it a “cornerstone” of security in East Asia.

Japanese Foreign Minister Matsumoto thanked Ms. Clinton for the U.S. military’s disaster relief and recovery efforts. “We would like to express gratitude for working with us around the clock since the earthquake,” he said. Mr. Matsumoto added Japan would strive to provide full and transparent disclosure at home and abroad about the ongoing crisis at the Fukushima nuclear plant.

During an overnight trip to Seoul, Ms. Clinton met with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and Foreign Minister Kim Sung-hwan, emphasizing economic connections rather than security ties. That appeared to signal the two countries are for the moment content with their relative strategies vis-à-vis North Korea….

And with BiBi~ yes Hillary would have been WORLDS APART from Obama on foreign policy with our sister Israel.

Hannity finally admitted last week on his show, Great American Panel portion, that he should not have started the ‘Stop Hillary Express’, that he was wrong. Yeah we hear that a lot. Sigh.

’16. Please Hillary. ’16.

Gallup: Hillary poll ratings highest in SOS term as America sees the leader it has been waiting for…

Yay Hillary. ’16 cannot come soon enough.

Gallup:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s favorable rating from Americans is now 66%, up from 61% in July 2010 and her highest rating to date while serving in the Obama administration. The current rating is just one percentage point below her all-time high rating of 67%, from December 1998.

..more than 60% of Americans viewed her favorably in all three measures Gallup has taken since she assumed her State Department job, and she scored 65% in January 2009 just prior to President Barack Obama being sworn in.

The latest results are from a March 25-27 Gallup poll conducted while the United States was actively involved in enforcing a no-fly zone over Libya, a policy Clinton reportedly advocated. The same poll finds Clinton rated more positively than other top administration officials. Obama receives a 54% favorable rating, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, 52%, and Vice President Joe Biden, 46%….

Uber-Snob Sally Quinn suggests using Hillary to save Obama in ’12 – heaven forefend!

Sally, Sally, Sally. As a Tea Party Patriot, recovering Democrat and Hillraiser let me enlighten you. We will never, ever, ever support Hillary lowering herself to run as VEEP with Obama in ’12.

And to think this comes from Sally Quinn, a woman who spent soo many years bashing Hill and Bill. Talk about the ‘audacity’ of a dope. From the outset of the Clinton Administration, Quinn felt Hillary’s lack of cocktail parties at the WH set her off as a Hillbilly. The Obama Versailles-like weekly events were ever so much more Sally’s style (nevermind how inappropriate they were in this economy).

But look, Obama is tanking in the polls! He is clearly over his head and looking ever more likely to lose in ’12.

Another poll, Hillary approval still high 59%…

FoxNews:

...By far, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton garners the highest approval rating of administration officials tested.

Fifty-nine percent of voters approve and 19 percent disapprove, with the remaining 22 percent unsure. In December, 66 percent approved and 22 percent disapproved….

Hillary has the highest approval of the Administration with Indies:

…Among independents, Clinton (56 percent approve) outperforms all others — including the president (39 percent)….

Obama’s numbers have totally collapsed with Indies:

…More independents disapprove (48 percent) than approve (39 percent) — and that’s been true for about two months….

Hillary is second with Dems:

…–Among Democrats, President Obama receives the highest approval rating (79 percent), followed by Clinton (76 percent) and Biden (71 percent)….

Obama’s approval below 80% with Democrats now:

Seventy-nine percent of Democrats approve and 12 percent disapprove. That’s a record low approval for Obama among his party faithful.

Republicans remain solidly in the disapprove column, as 84 percent give the president a negative rating and 12 percent approve.

FREE HILLARY!

Hillary favorables/unfavorables outpoll Obama (and the GOP competition)…

Ahh what could have, what should have been.Whenever you are ready Hillary, millions of us are ready to support you.

Andrew Malcolm LATimes:

a new CNN/Opinion Research Poll has just revealed that even today Americans like that other Democrat more and dislike that other Democrat less than they do the incumbent Democratic president.

That other Democrat is, of course, Hillary Clinton, who fought and scratched her way mightily but unsuccessfully through those bitter, belligerent Democratic primaries and caucuses of 2008. The former first lady and current secretary of State professes no intra-mural interest in challenging her White House boss, as she must as long as she’s an administration team member.

The published CNN article focused on an Obama matchup with Sarah Palin. But within the data were Favorable/Unfavorable ratings for numerous prominent politicians of both parties. Here are the surprising new poll numbers for Clinton:

61% now think favorably of the former senator and only 35% unfavorably, both numbers improved from the 56% and 40% she had during the Democratic National Convention in late August of 2008….

How about Hill’s favorables/unfavorables vs the GOP frontrunners?

Clinton’s numbers also beat all other both Democrats and Republicans in the new poll…

…Among Republican names, Mike Huckabee’s favorable-unfavorable rating is 43-29; Mitt Romney 40-34; Newt Gingrich 38-38 (see his recent speech video here); and Sarah Palin 39-55, up from her other recent numbers. See Palin’s recent speech video right here.

Loyal Ticket readers may remember this item of ours from last December when USA Today and Gallup found the two most admired females in America were Clinton and Palin — and only 1% separated them….

Hillary Clinton: No Greater Danger – Protecting Our Nation…

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Hillary demonstrates her command of the most important issues facing us on national security. FF to 35 mins in for Q/A from the audience.

HRC answers how we will maintain our nuclear arms in START, how we are dealing with Iran, NOKO, how they kept the Dubyah NoKo method of dealing with them b/c it makes sense, Iran, China working with them on sanctions now that Russia is on board, how other diplomats abroad were not even considering sanctions as diplomacy and we pushed them on that.

She says she is a realist and we will always have nuclear weapons and we must maintain and upgrade the existing weapons to ensure their use as a deterrent is effective.

She discusses normalization of relations with Cuba and the Castro Brothers resistance to this as well. She says it is her personal belief the Castro brothers do not want to normalize relations b/c it would end their excuses for the hold they have over their people. She says democracy will come to Cuba, it is coming. She discussed how an American was arrested in Cuba recently and a Cuban prisoner who died of a hunger strike recently. She says for the first time a lot of countries realize it is not the USA preventing Cuba from normalizing and expanding its economy and international relations.

Love this woman.

Hillary makes surprise trip to Afghanistan

Someone in D.C. IS concerned about our troops, her name is Hillary and she has been on record for sending more troops for months now.

Politico:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made an unannounced trip to Afghanistan Wednesday morning, MSNBC reports. She is visiting U.S. troops there.

In other news a CNN poll showed more Americans feel Hillary is qualified to be POTUS than Biden (no doubt they wanted to bash Hill and Sarah at the same time but were smacked down by the results):

CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday: two-thirds of the public thinks that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s qualified for the Oval Office. That’s more than Vice President Joe Biden, who’s currently next in line for the presidency.

..The CNN survey indicates that 67 percent of people questioned say that Clinton is qualified to serve in the Oval Office, 17 points higher than the 50 percent of Americans who think that Biden’s qualified to take over as president.

…The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll was conducted November 13-15, with 1,014 adult Americans questioned by telephone. The survey’s sampling error is plus or minus 3 percentage points for the overall sample.
