Will Obama actually sue Arizona?

During a TV interview in Ecuador, Hillary Clinton says the Obama administration will sue Arizona over its controversial immigration law. Does she know something we don't?

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton seems to have made news in a June 8 interview with Ecuadorean TV station NTN24, when she said "the Justice Department, under [President Obama's] direction, will be bringing a lawsuit" against Arizona's controversial immigration law. But the "news" didn't reach home — or Arizona — until the website The Right Scoop posted it Thursday. Since the Justice Department is still officially on the fence, it looks like Clinton "let the gato out of the bolsa," says Talking Points Memo's Christina Bellantoni. But maybe she's just "speaking out of school." Given the public support for the Arizona law, says John McCormack in The Weekly Standard, "I'm a bit skeptical that the Obama administration will actually follow through." Watch the interview:
