Ready to tackle the job: Clinton returns to State

Who says politics and diplomacy aren't contact sports?

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton returned to work Monday and was gifted the proper equipment for her final plays on the job.

Her Deputy Secretary of State Thomas Nides and staff at the weekly meeting of approximately 75 department managers presented her "a football helmet with a State Department seal, lots of good padding," State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.

Reporters were not in the room, but the presentation was described by Nuland at a press briefing Monday afternoon, and the department distributed photos of her opening the gifts.

    Thoroughly useless lady, no idea what America stands for, Allowed some 50K people killed in Libya, 60 K people killed in Syria, 20K killed in Egypt, and she is the best Sec of state the US ever had. It is a shame..she did not do a single good job, even could not work with Pakistan and Afghanistan

      She won a war that was not a war? She removed a nut case and replaced him with extremists. Boy won't that look good in the history books.
