She has not veered from the practice of separating the world's nations and people into those with or against her - there are no degrees in between - although her position regarding terrorists has evidently shifted with Libya last year and Syria currently.


The State Department has granted Clinton a forum from which to castigate, disparage, accuse and threaten others to her heart's content. It has in particular emboldened her to issue orders for heads of state outside the Western world to vacate their offices and cede power to successors approved by Clinton and her nation's allies.


Last February, within mere days of the beginning of anti-government actions in Libya, she pronounced before the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva: "It is time for Gaddafi to go - now, without further violence or delay."


In April she ordered President Laurent Gbagbo of Ivory Coast, who retained his office after an election whose outcome was disputed by the nation's Election Commission and the Constitutional Court - not unlike what occurred in the 2000 presidential election in the U.S. - to leave, stating:


"The United States calls on former President Laurent Gbagbo to step down immediately. Gbagbo is pushing Cote d'Ivoire into lawlessness.


"The path forward is clear. He must leave now so the conflict may end."


In the same month she ordered Yemen's head of state, Ali Abdullah Saleh, to leave office:


"President Saleh was given a very good offer that we strongly backed. And, you know, we cannot expect this conflict to end unless President Saleh and his government move out of the way to permit the opposition and civil society to begin a transition to political and economic reform."
