Is Hillary Really Dropping Political Pretense Or...?

This is a couple of days late since I'm at my niece's wedding in Springdale, Arkansas. It appears a turning point has been reached in the Democratic administration. Hillary Clinton was outspoken, speaking honestly and clearly revealing what she's dealing with as Secretary of State. The world's political leaders are growing reluctant to listen to the ideas put forth by the United States since the US appears to be on a self-destructive financial course itself; a "spit in the eye" as it were, to her boss, the President. Hillary is clearly posturing for future ambitions, but how refreshing to hear such honesty without an intrinsic spin.

In Bill O'Reilly's segment with Dick Morris a couple of days ago, where I saw the footage of Hillary, only the political calculation was discussed with no mention of her revealing clarity of our slipping position in world politics.
