Debbie vs. Hillary

Is anyone else struck by the similarity of the Biblical account of Barak and Barack's own selection of a cabinet?

I mean, the only way the parallel could be more obvious was if Hillary was the Secretary of Defense instead of the Secretary of State.

(Okay, and if Hillary was a woman of God instead of a woman of the world).

But it strikes me that the Biblical Barak and the American Barack would both have a decisive, strategic woman as their right-hand picks.

It's not that I expect anything good out of Hillary: I just find it interesting that in both cases a weak man had a strong woman in a position of leadership.  (See Judges 4-5).
