Team Obama Vets Hillary Clinton’s Facebook Profile


Hillary Clinton better hope an aide erased her Lewinskygate-era LiveJournal, because Barack Obama’s gonna want to see it. CNET is reporting that applicants for positions in the 44th administration are required to list all “posts or comments on blogs or other Web sites” that they have ever made — a tall order in these wired times.

Salon points out that this Sisyphean task suggests “the Obama administration may not be quite as tech-savvy as its reputation would indicate,” given that a single flame war on the Daily Kos could easily reach War and Peace proportions. Of course, future Secretary of State HRC is probably in the clear — after all, the Senator was already a mom by the time Al Gore invented the internet.
