Hillary Clinton Considered for Secretary of State Position

Hillary Clinton The transition into an Obama administration is shaping up to be as historic as he being elected as president.

It’s no secret that Obama is sick of usual politics when it comes to this country and it is also no secret that his entire administration will be aiming for the change he has been talking about for the past two years. With a change of administration and leadership aiming for radical, much-needed change of government, Obama has also grown tired of the usual candidates up for the position of Secretary of State, such as John Kerry (D-Mass.), Gov. Bill Richardson (D-N.M.), Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) and maybe former Democratic senator Sam Nunn of Georgia and has one, particular person in mind for the job and hold onto your hats, it’s a woman we’re pretty aware of.

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.

The pick of the former presidential contender and Senate Armed Services Committee member would go a long way toward healing any remaining divisions within the Democratic Party after the divisive primaries. Also, Clinton has long been known for her work on international women’s issues and human rights. The former first lady could also enhance Obama’s efforts to restore U.S. standing amongst allies worldwide.

And Obama could put her in his speed-dial for a 3 a.m. phone call every morning.

Fuck yes.

15 Thoughts on Hillary Clinton Considered for Secretary of State Position | Leave a Comment

  1. Some Guy says:

    The office of Secretary of State is a job for a professional diplomat, not a consolation prize to be tossed at a woman who ran a vicious, divisive, and dirty campaign, just to shut up the people who were deluded enough to support her.

    Hillary Clinton isn't fit to hold any office in the United States government, and truth to tell, she never was. She only got her senate seat because the DNC party bosses didn't respect the voters enough to let a qualified candidate get the democratic nomination to replace Moynihan.

  2. PiixiiDustt says:

    As a Hillary Clinton supporter for Obama (that’s what I like to call myself!)
    I hope she doesn't take the job. I think she is well capable of being a great Secretary of State, but that job is only going to last 4 -8 years (depending if Obama gets re-elected).She's going to lose her seniority in the Senate, wich she won't be able to concentrate head on domestic issues ; Healthcare reform, reproductive rights and so on.

  3. Stuperb says:

    I have always like Hillary Clinton. I was disgusted by her campaign – it was pretty awful – but I've softened toward her again since then. I think she'd make a great Secretary of State.

    i do think plenty of people will be irritated by her taking the position: lefties will be afraid his cabinet choices indicate a centrist direction for his Presidency; right-leaning independents have had enough of the Clintons to last them a lifetime; and Clinton fans will be afraid it will curtail her Presidential aspirations.

    Nevertheless, i think she'd be great for the job. She's got the experience, the reputation abroad, the knowledge of the issues, and just about the sharpest mind around.

  4. Kim says:

    Personally, I'd like to see Attorney General Hillary Clinton, but I'd be thrilled to see a SOS Hillary Clinton as well. She'd be a tremendous asset in either position.

  5. That would be nice! She would be a great SOS instead of the current one :)

  6. All I have to say is “LOL” Some of the stuff she says is so STUPID! That's my opinion..

  7. I agree with you, but what can we do, we don't have the power to talk with those HIGH personalities.

  8. Debby Taylor says:

    I was really hoping that he would ask her to do SOMETHING since she has so much experience – not to mention that she has Bill as an advisor. It would be a shame to have all of their expertise go to waste.

    I read her autobiography, which was out way before she was running for Pres nomination. It seems that she has been truly interested the essence of public service for a very long time. I see her as really wanting to have a positive, lasting influence wherever she serves. I voted for Barak, but I really like Hilary.
