From The Politico:
Hillary Rodham Clinton has a favorite expression for turning setback into opportunity: “Bloom where you’re planted.”
Her three-decade career on the public stage has produced countless examples of Clinton sprouting a flower in a pile of manure.
Few of them are more vivid than this week’s official announcement that she is the nominee to serve as secretary of state to Barack Obama — the man whom she initially refused to talk to on the Senate floor two years ago when he first made clear he would challenge her for the Democratic presidential nomination.
So, question for the authors John Harris and Glenn Thrush: is Arkansas the steaming pile of dung? Or was that her Senate seat? Or perhaps her stint as First Lady? Or her entire career as Bill Clinton’s wife? I’m just trying to figure out what you guys are trying to say here.
