But I guess most of those political enemies are in the USA. Internationally he has a lot of respect and support. And ultimately, the international community will vote about the issue, not the US. Internationally they don't care that much whether or not he had an extra-marital affair, or did not go into the army. What counts is a willingness to listen to international problems, resolve conflicts with diplomacy and being able to guide the UN through the minefield called international politics.

C ya!

That's very true. He has alot of respect in other countries, and it's the *United Nations*, not the United States. Sure, why not?

Does Clinton have more political enemies than any other Politician?

How exactly does one go about getting elected Secretary General? What are the requirements, what is the process, etc?

That's true too. Ironic, isn't it.

You might say that the knives were really out for him. That's mainly what I was thinking of. I didn't like it.

The U.S. and the other permanent members of the Security Council do not have a vote for the position for Secretary-General at the U.N. methinks, so it does not matter if the U.S. hates Clinton or not.

As a side note our esteemed Vice President received 9 deferments to keep him out of the military.

IŽd prefer Bono, then.

No, seriously, if we are discussing an ex US president to be Sec Gen, we can also nominate a rockstar.

That's interesting. I have my doubts as to whether or not Bono would be interested in the job. I don't think so.

Hah, verte76 is a New Yorker!

Sure enough Bono wouldnŽt be interested. Frank Zappa wouldŽve been, probably. But he is dead.
