Is Hillary Jumping Ship (cont.)

Last week Bill Clinton’s vocal advocacy of a Libya no-fly zone had me wondering whether Hillary was ready to jump off the good ship Obama. Evidence that she is continues to mount.  I don't know how much stock to put in this post from the The Daily built around the musings of a anonymous “Clinton insider.”  But it's more smoke evidencing fire:
“At the tail end of her mission to bolster the Libyan opposition, which has suffered days of losses to Col. Moammar Gadhafi’s forces, Clinton announced that she’s done with Obama after 2012 — even if he wins again.

“‘Obviously, she’s not happy with dealing with a president who can’t decide if today is Tuesday or Wednesday, who can’t make his mind up,’ a Clinton insider told The Daily. ‘She’s exhausted, tired.’

“He went on, ‘If you take a look at what’s on her plate as compared with what’s on the plates of previous Secretary of States — there’s more going on now at this particular moment, and it’s like playing sports with a bunch of amateurs. And she doesn’t have any power. She’s trying to do what she can to keep things from imploding.’

“Clinton is said to be especially peeved with the president’s waffling over how to encourage the kinds of Arab uprisings that have recently toppled regimes in Egypt and Tunisia, and in particular his refusal to back a no-fly zone over Libya.”

She's jumping ship. Primary challenge anyone?
