The inner circle of the nascent Obama administration is wrestling with the concept of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. The problem, according to insiders, is not so much a question of her plainness and incompetency as it is with what to do about her Bill.
Apparently, the former President has become a Democratic embarrassment. While the President-elect and his cronies have been meeting at secret venues to plan the next four years, security sweeps at these sites have discovered Bill hiding under tables, behind potted palms, and inside shower stalls. The motivation behind these trespassing episodes is not clear. Speculation is that he is trying to improve the nomination chances of his wife or perhaps to obtain inside information to sell to his foreign clientelle.
In any event, no sooner does the Secret Service "shoo" him away, he's back again peering through key-holes or listening behind walls with a cup pressed to his ear. According to one high-level source, Michelle Obama has suggested to her husband either to dump the Lady from New York or hire Monica Lewinsky as head of security to keep Bill, "The Pill", away.
Attempts to obtain a comment from Ms. Lewinsky have been unsuccessful. There are reports that she has eloped with an El Producto cigar, but that has yet to be substantiated.
