CHICAGO (Reuters) - Sen. Hillary Clinton emerged on Thursday as a candidate to be U.S. secretary of state for Barack Obama, months after he defeated her in an intense contest for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Putting Clinton, wife of former President Bill Clinton, in the position could help heal whatever lingering divisions remain in the Democratic Party after her bitter battle with Obama. ...

The GOOD news is, it would get her out of the Senate.
And Rudy could run for her senate seat.
Is this her payoff for leaving the race and not pursuing things. Now that pesky debt....it will probably disappear too if she gets it.
My suspicions are confirmed.
I think that’s a better choice that Bill Richardson!
Well, she does have the same qualifications that Maddy Albright has ...
It also elevates her to a throne ALMOST as high as Obummer’s
Imagine the intrigues that could be spun by The Rodhamistas with the mistress in such a powerful cabinet position that influences all US foreign policy...
That’s why I think it WON’T happen.
Hill & Bill are better at selling off our nuclear secrets to the Red Chinese...

Pullleeeeeeeeeeeze let it be true. Ohmama will be DOA with Hillary stumping for herself and Rahm grandstanding - the big tent will become the Big Top. What a circus. This one term American Idol empty suit pResident is making the biggest early mistakes since Bubba tackled gays in the military and installed Hillary as Health Care Czar. A rookie like this in the White House is simply a Godsend for us...2010 will be big and ‘12 will be bigger...they will implode within the first 6 months...
If he was going to pick her he could get on the horn and ask her, but that would risk having The One turned down directly and he would lose face.
So it's leaked as a trail baloon and she could play the Kabuki dance by saying maybe/maybe not before a formal offer.
One deal-breaker would be filling out that 63 page questionaire that would require her to give The One a document dump that would fill a medium land fill.
ugly big ankels
At least she's got Balls. :-D
The irony is she was supposed to be a “domestic” expert. She wanted control of domestic policy when Bill took office in ‘93 (and FUBARed her health care initiative.)
Now she is going to be appointed to a foriegn policy post?
Suspect she wouldn’t take this position. It puts her out of the country. Good in one way if her peops go after the self-anointed One but bad as he is her boss.
Think she’ll stay in the Senate where she can more easily get her folks like Pellicano and others to kill off the family dog and such.
She’s dead to us but well you do remember Vince Foster.
Pity anyone who will be linked to the Obama administration. It will be the worst in history.
The Clintons might be crooks, but they’re not fools.
I just don’t think being truly ugly should qualify either of them though. Other than that what is there?
