North Korea readies a missile launch and Hillary says, "This provocative action in violation of the U.N. mandate will not go unnoticed, and there will be consequences." That should put North Korea in its place.
Everyone wants to test Mr. Obama, and Mr. Il wants in on it. Luckily for us, Ms. Clinton is available to talk tough, because having heard Mr. Obama's squishy talk during the campaign, it would be hard to take him seriously. What would he say if he had to to do the talking? Let's imagine:
"Do not fire, that missile! I mean it. Think I'm bluffing? I'm gonna count to three. One ... Two... Two and a half ...
"I'll demand high level talks before you can chop your suey.
"I'll wag my long finger at you like you've never seen before.
"I'll organize an ACORN demonstration march right across the street from your embassy.
"And if you leave me no choice, I will lay you flat with a one-liner the likes of which you've never heard! See what I did to the Special Olympic bowlers? Beware! Be very ware!"
