Cease and desist
The White House isn’t everything. Really.
“Hillary Clinton can be a great secretary of state if she puts presidential ambition aside,” writes Mike Lupica of the New York Daily News.
“Hillary Clinton was not a great candidate, even as her husband and her sidemen kept saying she was, as if saying it often enough would finally make it true. She would not have made a great president. She can be a great secretary of state, but only if she does this right, which means she stops running now.”
“This is a time in America when Barack Obama asks everybody to find the best in themselves. Something like that might as well start with the woman he defeated for the nomination. Hillary has the chance to be better in this job than in anything she has done before it, and that includes the Senate. Only if she can do it without the usual drama. This is about the good of the country this time, not the Clinton brand.”
“She is a politician, now and forever. She is a politician and a Clinton. So of course she is still going to think the whole thing is about her, even when it is not, when it is about Obama, about his vision and foreign policy and even ideals.”
They’re not necessarily centrist, they’re centered: Republicans are better adjusted to the rigors of modern life than Democrats - and the rest of the population as well, at least according to a Harris poll released Monday.
Among Republicans, 43 percent have trouble sleeping, compared with 50 percent of Democrats. The average figure among all Americans was 47 percent.
Thirty-eight percent of Republicans said they had concerns about their health; the figure was 50 percent among the Democrats and for the overall population, 44 percent.
Republicans also had lower levels of stress over money, loneliness, relations with co-workers and information overload, the survey found.
Twenty-two percent of Republicans said they experienced considerable stress; the figure was 27 percent among Democrats and 26 percent among all Americans.
The survey of 5,210 adults was conducted between Oct. 30 and Nov. 3.
