What life is nice if your rice with a new gig as national security advisor -- -- -- one that does not need senate approval.
My -- that's as good luck getting to UN ambassador to -- -- -- To thoughts is that some security analyst -- T McFarland.
Why good luck.
Just after a day or she -- testified yet -- -- casting.
She's not going to be having confirmation hearings to be secretary of state of the NSA advisor she doesn't need to be confirmed no confirmation here so there's nothing to -- -- did.
And -- national security advisor to president can extend.
What's called executive privilege over her so she cannot -- have to go to you know just have to answer subpoenas just have to testify -- you.
I can get out of jail grind it.
I thought I get from this is the vote that the president administrator and to ambassador rice all saying.
You know well yeah I mean he's circling the wagons act.
So I certainly don't wagons while he -- stick and it's finger.
Well but that is she's getting his people you know first term what do they have to do we had to take other people they had a wanted Hillary Clinton at the State Department.
Bob gates holdover from the Republican administration.
He didn't necessarily think of these as his picks and they also may not share his world view I think they're probably didn't so now what does -- habeas people who share his world view.
They're loyalists to -- circling the wagons and I think he's just gonna -- down you know we're not.
We were -- know anything about this wiretapped.
Didn't know anything about the cover up for -- But but they are like picking her.
And and I don't see might have just been dead he's talking once had not even notice I definitely -- so so the fine but then.
Whether she you know was snookered or not she create -- use storm of controversy -- and he didn't care the president Gary you just -- -- to Republicans you know.
Prominent ran this that that's -- guaranteed.
Pretty tense relations now for this -- You bat and what he's also doing this I think is -- nervousness just by the space -- -- immigrants from national security advisor.
I didn't Republicans like her more than some of the other -- because she does have more hardline stance or not.
-- -- the things I -- -- him because -- show will be a very weak sector national security advisor because of -- phone.
Part of the job is to do with congress not in it testifying right for the congress but -- -- the office talking to them and I talked to two former national security advisors today.
One -- seventh and a third of my time -- congress she doesn't have great relations with congress.
The other -- she doesn't do that.
Well that -- John Kerry does that by how does that affect him all this is watch and see because she's very close to the press right there he's not they share of the world view I think you're gonna see.
A secretary of state who I think is pre qualified for the job he -- -- -- more fork.
More frequent flier miles and or Clinton Hamilton Henry Kissinger start out that way with senators Dave Rogers and he it -- stand completely.
So this is going to be -- worked for Kissinger what Kissinger did.
He came up with brilliant -- out of lax policies he negotiated with foreign leaders he had the ear of the president.
He then he was able to work with congress work with them foreign policy community intelligentsia which can -- on John Kerry I'm -- I think you gotta wonder what your new job as you know what is your role in all this -- care.
Because if there's a crisis it's -- the secretary of state that runs for the White House and sets up the crisis management group -- the national security advisor.
-- and felt wealthy stay tuned but I -- thank I don't think you're gonna save your gone like that I'm capital L they're coming out of office and explaining that nothing.
