You don't mess with Hillary if you know what's good for you!
Vice President Joe Biden stepped in it during Thursday's debate with Paul Ryan when he said that the Administration was unaware of requests for security from our diplomatic personnel in Libya. The problem is that it's well documented that there were multiple requests for more security in Libya.The response from the White House was to suggest that it's not their job to know or act on these requests. It's the State Department's job. Quite true, but pointing the finger at Hillary Clinton, who as Secretary of State is responsible, may not be smart.
Hillary very carefully avoided being the mouthpiece for the Administration in the wake of the attacks. She allowed U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, a relatively minor official, to go out and spout the Administration lie that an Internet video was to blame.
But Hillary isn't going to take the fall for this scandal. Her State Department has already put out the line that the faulty intelligence which claimed the video was to blame didn't come from them. Will she now find a way to leak the real source of this faulty intelligence, or finger those in the White House who may have made used political calculations to engineer the cover up?
Those who remember the Clinton Administration will recall that you don't mess with Hillary. Especially considering the way she was treated by Obama's campaign in 2008 it's very unlikely that she will fall on the sword to save Obama now. It's more likely that if there is a smoking gun hidden in Obama White House over this Libya mess Hillary will find a way to leak it.
Romney might worry about an October surprise from Obama. But there may be one from Hillary that will sink Obama!
