Hillary -- The New Jimmy Carter?

Hillary has given an interview on Bloomberg TV blasting Barack Obama for admitting that he has a messy desk and needs the help of a good executive secretary. The video is after the jump but here is a transcript of Hillary's comments:

I was somewhat taken aback about what he said, that was reported yesterday. I think it’s important that we have a president who understands that you have to run the government.

We all need to be inspirational and set goals, and I’ve been doing that throughout this campaign. We need to set big goals for our standing in the world, for our economy, to deal with energy and health care and so much else that is really on the minds of the people...

They want a president who they believe gets up every single day and works for them, that requires a president who is hands-on. Who after you set the goals and give the speeches, you go back to the White House and you start holding people accountable and you want to know what they’ve done today to help the American people.

You’ve got to take on this government, you’ve got to to run this government, you can’t leave it to others.
I guess Hillary wants to be micro-manager in chief. Didn't Jimmy Carter's administration come a cropper because he insisted on being micro-manager in chief?
