To which I reply, "huh?" Hillary Clinton and Obama have precisely the same position on American Imperialism (they support it), and anyone Obama would have *conceivably* appointed to the post of Secretary of State would have had precisely the same position. Unless Gary was expecting Obama to appoint Brian Becker or even Dennis Kucinich to the post, the result is the same. It was the American ruling class, which the unfortunate consent of the American people, or at least the American electorate, which passed that death sentence long ago; the appointment of Hillary Clinton just puts the latest face on those in charge.
