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.

Update: Ace HQ posts on a ROY that Hagel is in and Gates out within a year. Sounds like peeps are getting clued into the antiHawk stance of TOTUS and withdrawing from posts. Get out of there Hillary!

As Think Progress notes, last night the boss floated a very well-sourced rumor that Secretary Gates will be out by the end of the year and replaced by Chuck Hagel, who the boss described as an “advocate of retreat everywhere.”

Politico:

Taking Lippert’s place as chief of staff to the National Security Council will be Denis McDonough, a deputy national security adviser, and chief foreign policy speechwriter Ben Rhodes will step up to assume some of McDonough’s responsibilities, the administration announced.
