First there's Iran:



"Clinton Urged Obama to Talk Tough on Iran"

excerpt..

At his June 23 news conference, Mr. Obama said he was "appalled and outraged" by Iranian behavior and "strongly condemned" the violence against anti-government demonstrators. Up until then, Mr. Obama and other administration officials had taken a softer line, expressing "deep concern" about the situation and calling on Iran to "respect the dignity of its own people."

Behind the scenes, the officials, who spoke on the condition that they not be named because they were discussing internal deliberations, said Mrs. Clinton had been advocating the stronger U.S. response, but the president resisted. When he finally took her advice, the aides said, he did so without informing her first. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/jul/01/clinton-urged-obama-to-talk-tougher-on-iran/

Hillary's peeps trying to get her some pub at Obama's expense. Love it.

And then Hillary gets caught on video throwing a big temper tantrum at Obama for forcing her to parrott the lame party line support for the reinstatement of a Marxist stooge in Honduras:

I think Obama subscribes to the notion of, "keep you friends close and your enemies closer".

I think he is anticipating a dagger in the back from the lovely Mrs Clinton.;-)

Kinda like LBJ speaking of J. Edgar Hoover, "It's better to have him inside the tent pissing out than outside the tent pissing in."
