NORMAN HSU OUT, Sandy Berger in? “Why do I find the report that Hillary Clinton is using Sandy Berger as one of her key foreign policy advisors so unnerving? Because it shows both poor judgment and a lack of regard for Berger’s legal and ethical breaches. I also find it quite surprising. Hillary Clinton has impressed me as a Senator and as a candidate. Whatever her other faults, she is intelligent, savvy, disciplined, and determined; by far the most impressive candidate in the Democratic field. All this makes her apparent inclusion of Berger in her foreign policy ‘triumvirate’ all the more difficult to fathom.”

Maybe she owed him a favor. On the other hand, the loss of Hsu seems to have driven Hillary to truly desperate measures.
