National Intelligence Director Clapper opens mouth and inserts foot again

Doesn't Director of National Intelligence James Clapper know only one buffoon is allowed per administration and VP Joe Biden already has dibs on that position? Clapper's most recent gaffe is publicly declaring the Qaddafi regime will prevail!
(F0X News)- Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., in an exclusive interview with Fox News correspondent Carl Cameron, called for Gen. James Clapper to resign or be fired as Director of National Intelligence, citing his comments before the Senate Armed Services Committee this morning, on which Graham sits.

Clapper had stated his belief that the Qaddafi regime, in the long term would “prevail,” and also assessed China and Russia to be primary threats to the United States.

Graham told Cameron that he lacks confidence in Clapper’s understanding of his job, that President Obama should “repudiate” Clapper’s remarks, and that this is the third time Clapper has faltered in this way.
“Three strikes and you’re out,” Graham said.
