    The smartest thing that she could do now is resign and throw the blame at Obama. He's been safely reelected, so he won't have any trouble with an impeachment (as if Harry Reid would ever allow it on the senate floor), and she can claim that she wanted to act, but was constrained by the White House. The rumor mill already credits her with supporting Panetta and Gates against the White House in the Bin Laden mission (apparently, Valerie Jarrett was opposed to it, and had Obama put up all manner of obstacles). This would burnish her credentials on foreign policy and make her appear tougher than she really is, while weakening Obama. That would set her up nicely for 2016. Without that, she's the architect of his failed foreign policy, and the moment she's out the door, he's going to start blaming her for everything that goes wrong in foreign policy over the next couple of years (and things are going wrong at a rate not seen since the Carter years). She can avoid being slowly ground under the bus by getting in a preemptive strike.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    If it weren't so serious, it would be amusing watching the two snakes battle it out, each trying to throw the other under the bus.

    I'm sure that she's hiding and dodging those Congressional questions. Lager is right, she's trying to avoid tapes that can be played if she makes a run for president. Besides, she's a typical Clinton who lies so much that she might get caught in the testimony with contradictory stories.
