Hillary Clinton to be Next Secretary of State?


Yeah, right.

There’s increasing chatter in political circles that the Obama camp is not overly happy with the usual suspects for secretary of state these days and that the field might be expanding somewhat beyond Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), Gov. Bill Richardson (D-N.M.), Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) and maybe former Democratic senator Sam Nunn of Georgia.

There’s talk, indeed, that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) may now be under consideration for the post. Her office referred any questions to the Obama transition; Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor declined to comment.

Senator John Kerry and/or Governor Bill Richardson bring more to Obama than a cackling member of the Clinton Cabal who can undermine the inexperienced Obama every day of his Presidency.

Who leaked this nonsense?

Podesta, Bill or Rudy Giuliani?

    One thing you have to admit – The Clintons sure know how to rile up Obama. Just when he thinks he can leave Hillary to Harry Reid, she pops up again in his sights. And its pretty darn well co-ordinated. Couple of days back, there were some articles about Obama not doing anything to help retire Clinton’s campaign debt. Apparently that didn’t work, so this Sec. of State thing pops up. If Obama collects enough money to help her clear the debt, I’m sure they’ll leave him alone.

    Yes, it is all about money and power – in that order this go around.

    Of course, a one term disastrous President Obama would set up Hillary as the presumptive favorite for 2012.

    Hillary as a Secretary of State?
    Love Obama with all my heart!
    But now I am a little disapointed, I mean so far the template that is being built is based on the old.I thought this was going to be change not a throwback, we have all of the same players affiliated in some way with the impeached Clinton from 9 years ago, please President Obama, start tapping into the talent of tomorrow and the powermovers of the NOW, Hillary and the Clintons made me lose a great deal of respect, however, they seemed to patch things up but I would not have her in my cabinet or adminstration if he knows what is right for him, loyalty is the most important asset or your team, she has shown the cards of being able to cast a spear into his back and not bat an eye.
