Buried in the explosive Rolling Stone profile of Gen. Stanley McChrystal Tuesday is the nugget that McChrystal's "team" has a good opinion of at least one administration official: Hillary Clinton.
At various points in the profile, McChrsytal ignores an e-mail from Holbrooke, accuses Eikenberry of "cover[ing] his flank for the history books," and speaks dismissively of Vice President Biden, whom an aide refers to as "Bite me." Another aide calls National Security Adviser Jim Jones a "clown."
