The Secretary of State won’t be in Charlotte next week. That’s right, Hillary Clinton will skip the Democrat National Convention. Seems she has another meeting to go to. In The Cook Islands. That’s a 28-hour flight by commercial airliners.
Now, sure, she’s working. She’ll be meeting with some dignitaries from Volcanoland or something. And, it’s not like she didn’t attend this yearly conference last year … although she didn’t; she sent her chauffeur or somebody.
Bottom line is, she’s getting as far away from this year’s DNC as possible, possibly resting up for a run against President Romney in 2016.
And I’m not criticizing her. I’m not getting near Charlotte next week, either. Nothing against Charlotte, mind you. I personally wouldn’t mind being in Charlotte … if I could visit John Boy and Billy. But I can’t so I won’t.
Anyway, we know where Hillary’s gonna be: about as far away as possible without actually leaving the planet.
I wonder, though: where would be some good places for Democrats to go instead of Charlotte? Where are some good hiding places?
