The haughty John Kerry (did you know he was in Vietnam?) is once again left standing at the altar...

Great ploy on Zero’s part to get HRC into his cabinet. That way she won’t oppose him for the nomination on 2012. With all the talk of massive economic problems continuing in four years, she’d be ripe to knock him off in the primaries.

Oh, darn. So the one saving grace of this election may not hold?

That the Clintons are finally vanquished?

Anyone who thinks this is not a Clinton administration better think again. Looks like we have a puppet presidency.

NO WAY she would give up her powerful Seante seat to work for this guy. She's positioning for 2012.

If she takes it simply meaning no real change in the Head of the State Department since the Reagan years. Different names, different faces, same old failed policies in all the wrong places. The Bush/Clinton/Bush/Clinton Legacy lives on.

Oh gawd, Hiliarly as SecState?!?

Can’t wait to see how much sniper fire she has to dodge on all those upcoming diplomatic missions.

As for John F’in Kerry? Watch for that schmuck to be appointed as U.N. Ambassador, a match made in left-wing internationalist heaven.

Actually I will be surprised if this happens.

I had a feeling she was going to be nominated for the Supreme Court of the US.

I figured he was paying her off with the promise of some big appointment.

Hill actually scared me more as a Supreme Court Justice than as a Sec of State

Same cabinets, same Springsteen, same Clintons, and don’t see any “minorities”....oh, forgot, the Dems don’t include them, just send them checks.

Not a good move for her or Obama. I think she should try and take the Senate Majority Leader position and get rid of that ratfink Nevada Senator...forgot his name. Anyway this would cause a big ordeal in the Senate and cause some problems at least until settled...I would rather enjoy seeing more drama in the Democratic party.

Considering some of the options out there, Hillary Clinton would not make a bad Secretary of State.

I’m not sure the Obama group wants the Clintons anywhere close to the inner workings of the Obama Administration. Can you imagine two Clintons for the price of one in the SOS position..... No way Bill could keep his nose out of the process. jmo.

She won’t take it. Her only way to remain in the news is as senator. She knows Schumer and the rest of the dems will overreach, so she will sit tight and likely have a better job
in four years than many other dems.

The rats have too much rope and they are about to knot it up.

Not going to happen, unless this was part of the deal of her giving up on the nomination.
Please no. The only positive that came out of this POTUS election was the Clintons weren’t going to be back in the whitehouse.
Last thing I need is to be tortured by Secretary of State crusty pantsuit flying around the world selling us out on a daily basis.

This could be a big leadup for Hillary getting the SofS job and to grease the wheels for Bill Clinton becoming president of the UN. God help us all if this comes to pass.
This all could of been part of the deal of her pulling out to let Obama have the nomination.

Heh... I was just thinking the same thing. Better there than on the USSC for life. And, surprising myself a bit, she might not even totally suck at it. There's some far scarier people standing in line.

But I kinda doubt that she would take it. They're both deeply narcissistic personalities and neither will likely let the other have any chance of outshining them.

Problem for Obama is that there isn't anybody he can select for his cabinet that doesn't make him look like a naive waif by comparison. He'll be reduced to taking credit for the work of his betters, and they won't probably stand for that for very long.

It shows just how bad things are when Hillary would be the best we could hope for in a Secretary of State. I do think she is a tough personality who would not bend to Obama’s will on every foreign policy decision, which is why I don’t see her actually getting this position.

Agree with you 100%. She is counting on Obama's presidency being a total disaster and challenging the incumbent by running as an Independent. 2012 is going to have some similarities to '92 and '96, is my guess.

Obama doesn’t know enough qualified people on his own. Hence he hired all the old Clinton flunkies as his aides. What a shame. Now is a time when real thoughtful people should stand up and take important roles, instead we will have this puppet presidency, a large international contraction, and a massive government intervention into private industry.... just the opposite of what we need.

I just took a glimpse at DUmmieland...they don’t like the idea. In fact, they know Obama is smarter than to appoint HRC as SOS.

One discerning poster did make a comment as to the fact that they’ve appointed every other Clinton crony...why not HRC.

Does anyone else wonder what in the world constitutes “Breaking News” on this site anymore? I originally put this there immediately upon viewing it at 6:40 PM live on NBC Nightly News where it was presented as “late breaking” and was clearly not part of the original planned broadcast. This post has now been removed from Breaking News on FR. Just as a side note, in the breaking news sidebar, the bottom story is dated November 10, 2008. Can anyone explain this? Thanks.
