Obama And Clinton Know It Isn't About Them -- Who Will Tell The Media?

Almost every story about Obama nominating Clinton to be his secretary of state has focused on their relationship, but I really wish they would write and report about the job itself. Bush has seriously wrecked the authority of America in the world, and Secretary Rice is just another one of his yes-men who really has no credibility in the international arena due to the failed presidency she's worked for. From one side of the world to the other, Sen. Clinton will have to work to fulfill the Obama administration's stated goal of restoring American dignity on the global stage.

That's far more pressing than the latest "Ooooooooo drama!" story.
