Hillary Clinton Considered for Secretary of State Position
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.
