Clinton as head of UN needs UN move

Last year, there were many who were pushing for Bill Clinton, former President of the US, to be appointed as the Secreatry General of the UN. There was one major obstacle - the UN is situated in the US and that would not allow for a US citizen to serve as the Secretary General.

In his right wing blog aaron’s cc: (formerly: Aaron’s Rantblog & Aaron the Liberal Slayer) - It's Clobbering time on Thursday - October 21, 2004 had his take in a blog entry: "Move the UN from US soil: Clinton Aspires to Succeed Kofi"

Analysis: Clinton eyes U.N. post

By ROLAND FLAMINI, UPI Chief International Correspondent

The neocons in the US would be dead against this, as would left-wing liberals. So it is probably about the most central point of view in the US that could adopt. Not only was Clinton a popular US President in the US, he was exceptionally popåular around the world because of his personal charisma.

The stumbling block - the necessity to Move the UN from the US!!
