Hilary Clinton: Secretary Of State?

Posted on: November 18, 2008

Although we seem to be switching parties in the White House and the senate, looks like a women will still be holding down the Secretary Of State seat:

According to several reliable sources, Barack Obama has extended the offer to Sen. Hilary Clinton to be Secretary Of State. Senator Clinton met with President-elect Obama to talk about the job. Recently in Obama’s interview with 60 Minutes (CBS), when asked about him offering her the job, he chose to stay mum about that topic. Smiling and saying “you won’t get anything out of me”. About the potential position, her husband and former President Bill Clinton had this to say:

“She worked very hard for Obama’s election after the primary with him, and so did I. And we were very glad that he won and we have a lot of confidence that he can do a good job. But she didn’t do what she did with the hope of or expectation of getting any kind of job offer, much less having this discussed. If he decided to ask her and they did it together, I think she’ll be really great as the secretary of state. Whatever happens or doesn’t happen is between Obama and her.”

Although these two were going head to head to run for President on behalf of democrats, it was obvious that Sen. Obama had the utmost respect for the Clinton’s and admired the way Bill Clinton led this country during his tenure as President (1992-2000). Hopefully we can get an Obama-Clinton team up in the near future.
