Madeleine Albright: Not the sharpest knife in the drawer

The Austin American Statesman has this story about a speech that the worst Secretary of State of the 20th century gave at St. Edward's University in Texas.

I thought the headline ("Albright criticizes war in Iraq but says U.S. must stay") was the typical, talking-out-of-both-sides-of-their-mouth carping that we hear from Democrats these days. However the real howler in this article was this line:

She said Clinton had so impressed the Arabs that he "could be elected president of any country" in the Middle East.

Now, correct me if I am wrong, but there are only three countries in the Middle East to which Bill Clinton could be elected to the presidency - Israel, Turkey, and Iraq. And the third one only because of the determination of the man Albright was bitching about.

Now, why couldn't he be elected president of the rest of them again? Oh, that's right. NONE OF THE REST OF THEM HAVE ELECTIONS!
