President Clinton's international and financial dealings with his foundation and presidential library have been a sticking point with an Obama camp worried that Sen. Clinton's position in the cabinet could create a potential conflict of interest as the country's top diplomat.
FOR EXAMPLE: Last spring, before the Olympics, Sen. Clinton was speaking out against China's crackdown on Tibetan protesters
AT THE SAME TIME
that her husband's foundation was taking money from a firm accused of collaborating in that censorship, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Umm, yup. I do think it is a conflict of interest. MR777, you are he does get paid to travel to places like the middle east. For example: "Other reports have cited donations from officials in Saudi Arabia, Morocco, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait -- each one a contact for Bill Clinton and a potential conflict for the Obama White House"..."Clinton spoke on Sunday on his assessment of Obama's domestic and foreign policies at a National Bank of Kuwait symposium. Some published reports put Clinton's fee at $500,000".
But nothing you can do about it. Just question the CHANGE.. errrr lack thereof. And if the decision works in Hillary's favor, it will give SNL, Leno, and O'Brien the comedy "bits" they need to keep their careers going.
