Hillary Clinton is said to be frustrated with her lack of authority as secretary of state and resentful of the glacial pace of the White House vetting process.
President Obama's picks fly in even if they didn't pay their taxes. But her picks take forever," noted one Democrat.
"Plus, she has no real clout over Holbrooke or Mitchell.
Richard Holbrooke is Obama's "special representative" for Afghanistan and Pakistan.
George Mitchell is "special envoy" to the Middle East. Clinton is said to be considering quitting to retake her old US Senate seat now held by Kristin Gillibrand-- or running for governor, as one rumor has it.
"Her argument will be that Gillibrand is in danger of losing the seat to the Republicans," said a source.

Can she move to Massachusetts and get elected the way she did in New York? What are the laws on residency there?
If Obama, Biden, Pelosi, and Byrd were to assume room temperature, Hillary, as Secretary of State, is next in line for the presidency.....I wouldn’t put anything past this plotting, evil “woman.”
Barry’s involvement in the Lockerbie bomber deal screwed her over. Any presidential ambitions she has are now toast.
On the upside the Hotel on Saipan overlooks the beach.
Note to Hillie: Curious why you didn’t quit, if you were indeed left out in the cold in that deal. Only reason I can think of is that you figger no-one would believe your protestations of ignorance. Good guess.
She’s a fool. Either she expeceted this invisible role and was willing to accept it as a price for the perceived power and stature, or she didn’t expect it from the Obamagoons, which makes her an idiot as well.
Will Gillebran step aside?
Can she get an apartment in Boston and run for Kennedy’s seat?
I knew she would leave but something about the rumors the night after his “do or die” speech on health care seems rich.
She has insiide info about O and his surrounders which is valuable. And does she get to access passport files the way she did FBI.
She and Obmam could have a mutual mud fest that might be just the best girl fight we ever saw~
The real beauty of this whole scenario is that once she leaves, it may be payback time. Bill certainly isn’t enamored of Obama, and Hillary is just an evil B***H. If Obama crashes hard, then that opens up the gate for Hillary in 2012.
True. Only problem is that they're ready, willing, and able to take the country down with 'em while they go at it.
I find it quite hilarious that if Zero needs to get Hillary out of the picture at anytime he can send her to Congo or Bora Bora. She put herself in this position.
Bill has probably thanked Zero profusely for putting distance between he and Cankles.
Continuing proof, as if it were needed, of why Uptstate needs its own state.
She's been 'handled' the same way as the cabinet, with the appointment of the various Czars.
I never thought I would say this, never in my wildest dreams, but I would root for Hillary. She looks positively benign next to this poseur adolescent we have in the WH.
HA! There must have been a memo. I noticed in another picture that several men had on red ties. What does it mean, that they were “red diaper babies”?
First photo is a fake laugh.
Second photo is her not so happy.
El Baraqi looks a little worried in that third photo.
I think she had to take the Sec of State job for one reason and one reason only, to get the money to retire her massive campaign debt. Last November the economy was in a tailspin, Hillary had over $20 million in campaign debt that had to be repaid and she saw no realistic way out unless she bowed to Obama. She accepted his “invitation” to become his much weakened Sec of State in order to bring her followers and admirers back to his camp. She is sick and tired of being a mocked pawn and not a part of Obama’s true inner circle. It’s a commonly known fact that Rahm and Hillary do not like each other, and that’s putting it mildly. She also sees Obama’s numbers tanking, and senses the possibility of a comeback in 2012. If she announces that she intends to run for her old seat or for governor then that will be a clear sign that she is positioning herself to be the moderate alternative to Obama.
