#1 Clinton's personal appointments in the Dept of State have been mainline types who generally embrace the previous 60 years of Israeli-American strategic relationships.

However, Obama's appointments include some very anti Israel types (e.g., Chas Freeman) and Obama insisted on placing Samatha Powers in the Dept of State.

It will be an interesting ride until this settles out.

#3 The thing that will make her furious is that which makes her look bad. And she wants Israel to make her look good.

Hillary will do what it takes to get credit for any success and avoid blame for failure. The latter will mean pinning blame on someone else.

#4 Seaf,

According to various sources, Huma is working in the Office of the Sec of State doing 'assistant' type work. She is also dating someone in the H of Representatives (presumably Tony Weiner, a pro Israel guy who represents a district in NYCity)
