WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. officials say Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton plans to meet ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya this week. It would be the highest-level contact the Obama administration has had with Zelaya since he was deposed last week.Most think this meeting is to curry favor with the Obama Administration to assist in returning Zelaya to the presidency of Honduras. My sources, however, claim that there is an entirely different reason for this meeting:
Former Honduran President Manuel Zelaya is no longer interested in returning to Honduras to live and lead. He is visiting Washington to request replacing Sonia Sotomayor as President Obama's nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court.
Zelaya says that his experiences are extreme qualifiers for this nomination. He has seen first hand what damage a supreme court can do to a renegade executive branch when the court actually follows faithfully the actual meaning of the Constitution. He would never allow that to happen. President Obama is said to be 'deeply interested.'
In addition, Mr. Zelaya also declares that a wise Latino Honduran will make far better decisions than a wise Latina Puerto Rican any day.
