    Personal preference thing?

    Anyway, yes.  Is this a crazy thought?  The State Department has close to 50,000 employees, maintains relations with 180 odd some countries, and spends almost 30 billion dollars a year.  

    What I'm saying is that the President literally does not have time to make every decision for the Department of State.  He relies on the people he appoints to make decisions for him.  

    OF COURSE he has ultimate authority over Clinton.  But you really think Clinton runs by every aid program and policy statement by the President?  Do you think the President has so little respect for the people he appoints?
